Date: Thu, 22 Jan 1998 16:12:07 +0000 From: Lynne Murphy Subject: quote source if you squeeze your brain real hard, this might be a dialect question, but here goes: can someone tell me who said (shaw? twain?) the following: however eloquently a dog may bark, he cannot tell you that his parents were poor but honest. if you know where s/he said it, that'd be nice to know too. and if my quotation is inaccurate, please let me know. i couldn't believe that no one in my department (nor any of their quotation books) could help me on this one--i've heard it so often! thanks in advance, lynne -- M.
