The difference between the almost right word
and the right word is really a large matter.
It’s the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.
– Mark Twain in a letter to George Bainton, 10/15/1888
Kind of like snapping a photo at just the right time! I love it when the lightning bugs are out and about. Earlier this week I started to see them in the front yard, too bad they’re spraying for mosquitos in our development next week so that will kill a good number of them.
Do you have lightning bugs in your area?Filed under Quote | Comments (25)
