Hi All--
I just read this quote, purporting to be from Twain:

“None of us can have as many virtues as the fountain-pen, or half its
cussedness; but we can try.”

So, is it really something he said or wrote?  If so, where?

To me it sounds like something he'd say.  But this list has made me
skeptical of such attributions.
