I did not have time to write you a letter. The year of 2017:
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 because I didn’t have time to write a short one. I think it takes more mental effort to write a hundred words than a thousand, particularly if you want it to be meaningful.
Who said I would have written a shorter letter but I didn’t have the time?
Who said sorry this letter so long?
Mark Twain was a writer.
Would have written you a shorter letter if I had more time?
Henry David Thoreau is a writer and philosopher. I would write a shorter letter if I had more time. I’m never satisfied until I have said as much as possible in a few words, and writing takes far more time than writing.
