“A word about earthquakes. I am sick and tired of being blamed for earthquakes. I do not, could not, would not, have not, and will not cause earthquakes! It would be entirely out of character. I'd be much more likely to knock the bottom out of the stock market. Once and for all: I did make earth; it happens to be one property of earth now and then to quake; that is all there is to it.”
