According to the San Francisco Examiner, 19 June 1992, A-1, A-16, Quayle said "As Mark Twain once said, 'You should never trust a man who has only one way to spell a word.'". The same article reported that UC-Berkeley scholars working on his papers couldn't validate the authenticity of the quote. The quote was evidently found in at least three other collections of quotes "who attributed the remark to Twain without saying when and where or how." According to the Examiner "In the Bancroft archives only one item comes remotely close, Hirst said. It's a speech Clemens gave in May 1875 after a fund-raising spelling bee at the First Congregational Church in Hartford, Conn. He lost out by dropping the silent 'h" out of 'chaldron,' a term for 36 bushels of coal. "He said: 'I don't see any use in spelling a word right, and never did. I mean I don't see any use in having a uniform and arbitrary way of spelling words. We might as well make all our clothes alike and cook all dishes alike.' The could be the original source of the Quayle quote, Hirst speculated, if it had been paraphrased and altered through retellings over the years."
