Mark Twain owned a huge library full of countless books, most of which he never purchased. The capacity of the bookshelves, In proportion to the numerous books, in that library was so menial that 80% of the books had to be kept stacked all around the library floor. A literary friend once visiting the library had the following conversation with Mr. Twain:
Friend: Why do you have so many books without, and out of, the shelves? Mark Twain: Well, it seems, the bookshelves are too few to contain such a vast number of books in the library. Friend: Why can't you have adequate number of bookshelves then? Mark Twain: Because you see, being the gentleman that I am, I cannot really BORROW bookshelves from the friends as frequently as I BORROWED most of the books of this library; can I?
