Worth Remembering: Alexander Irving's Mark Twain Quote

Recently, I was working on an article about Art School Dismissed, that exhibition that took over Shaw Street School back in May. One of the works I enjoyed there was Alexander Irving's Symposium—small wall plaques that looked like directions to the principal's office but instead offered borrowed bits of zen wisdom. The one above quotes Mark Twain, and seems particularly useful to my life right now, even if isn't quite true. Thanks, art!

Hey guys, glad you like it... others were "If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door" (Milton Berle) and "You can observe a lot just by watching" (Yogi Berra)
