the quote from Mark twain states 'Of all the creatures man is the most detestable, of the entire brood he is the only one that possess malice.he is the only creature that inflicts pain for sport knowing it to be pain. The fact that man knows right from wrong proves his intellectual superiority to the other creatures. but the fact he can do wrong proves his moral inferiority to any creature that cannot!'
