Posted by admin on Sunday, January 6, 2013

Mark Twain Money Quote saying long words are paid the same as short words to a journalist paid by the word, so why write longer for the same pay? Mark Twain said:

I never write metropolis for seven cents because I can get the same price for city. I never write policeman because I can get the same money for cop

— Mark Twain
