Discipline

Mark Twain, as posthumously quoted in the Montreal Gazette, April 25th, 1935:

When a host asked Mark Twain if he would like a drink before breakfast, the humorist replied:

“Thanks, I do not care for a drink for three reasons. In the first place, I never drink before breakfast. In the second place, I am a prohibitionist, and, in the third place, I have already had three drinks this morning.”
