Although it is often attributed to him (in various forms), it may not be true that Mark Twain said “Anyone who can only think of one way to spell a word obviously lacks imagination.”
However, in his autobiography he included the following: “I never had any large respect for good spelling. That is my feeling yet. Before the spelling-book came with its arbitrary forms, men unconsciously revealed shades of their characters and also added enlightening shades of expression to what they wrote by their spelling, and so it is possible that the spelling-book has been a doubtful benevolence to us.”
