Quote by Mark Twain

“I love to revel in philosophical mattersespecially astronomy. I study astronomy more than any other foolishness there is. I am a perfect slave to it. I am at it all the time. I have got more smoked glass than clothes. I am as familiar with the stars as the comets are. I know all the facts and figures and have all the knowledge there is concerning them. I yelp astronomy like a sun-dog, and paw the constellations like Ursa Major.

– Mark Twain (1835-1910), in a letter to the San Francisco Alta California newspaper, 1 August 1869.
