For fun try and guess who this paragraph is talking about.

"Two men live sixty-three years each. They meet face to face four times. One is superbly handsome, the finest flower of a civilization now vanished. The other is short and akward, both physically and in manner. Both are gentlemen and gentle men. Both are kind. One is verbal, charming; the other is entirely inarticulate, a clam. Yet the talkative one would write nothing, and the silent one would produce a book that Mark Twain said would last as long as America remembered the roll of the vanished drum and the tread of marching hosts."

Good luck!

I'm quite certain Skip is much, much older than 63.

"They met face to face only four times: once during the mexican war when one of them was an illustrious staff officer and the other a lowly lieutenant; twice at the end of the civil war, when each stood at the head of a great army; once in the White House, when one of them was the President of the United States and the other the president of an obscure college. Only four times. Yet their names are linked forever in history -- Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant."
