Many “fact accounts” attribute the following quote to Mark Twain:

The more I learn about people, the more I like my dog

The quote often includes the following photo of Mark Twain and a dog.

According to WikiQuote, this quote falls under the category of unsourced/possible fakes.

I also posted this to Metabunk and can confirm that Mark Twain never said or wrote that.
