Mark Twain Stamp/Quotes

Is it not cool that Mark Twain/Samuel Clemens has his very own postage stamp?    The guy is eminently quotable and here are a few favorites:

"Classic.  A book which people praise and don't read." 

"The report of my death was an exaggeration." Waaay before Paul was dead but really alive.

"Always do right.  This will gratify some people and astonish the rest."

 My very favorite: "I was gratified to be able to answer promptly, and I did.  I said I didn't know."  Question: What do librarians say in their time off?

I like the part about "Classic."
