German term or phrase:Mark Twain quote
My text contains a quote from Mark Twain (does not specify from which book or story). I have been googling like mad with the key words and "Mark Twain" in English hoping to come across the original, but have been unable to do so.
Is anyone familiar with the following quote in English:
"Männer, die behaupten, sie seien die Herren im Haus, lügen auch bei anderen Gelegenheiten."
