„Die meisten Schriftsteller betrachten die Wahrheit als ihren wertvollsten Besitz und sind daher sparsam im Gebrauch.“

—  Mark Twain
Original

Most writers regard the truth as their most valuable possession, and therefore are economical in its use.

Context: A critic never made or killed a book or a play. The people themselves are the final judges. It is their opinion that counts. After all, the final test is truth. But the trouble is that most writers regard truth as their most valuable possession and therefore are most economical in its use. Said to portrait painter Samuel Johnson Woolf, cited in Here am I (1941), Samuel Johnson Woolf; this has often been abbreviated: Most writers regard truth as their most valuable possession, and therefore are most economical in its use.
