I am sorry this letter is so long.

Who said I apologize for the length of this letter?

Mark Twain was a man.

Who said I apologize for such a long letter I didn’t have time to write a short one?

The name of the person is Blaise Pascal.

What did Mark Twain mean when he said I didnt have time to write a short letter so I wrote a long one instead?

I wrote a long letter instead of a short one because I didn’t have time. I think it takes more mental effort to write a hundred words than a thousand, especially if you want it to be meaningful.

Who said if I had more time it would be shorter?

Cicero said he would have written a shorter letter if he had more time. You’re aware that I write slowly. I am never satisfied until I have said as much as possible in a few words and writing takes far more time than writing.

Who said I would have written a shorter letter but I didn’t have the time?
