Smoothest Retort for Any Confrontation

When you find yourself angrily or bizarrely confronted and accused on any number of ridiculous things, Mark Twain, in his biography, provides the perfect response. He wrote: 

Ah, well, I am a great and sublime fool. But then I am God's fool, and all His work must be contemplated with respect.
I plan to use this one myself as nothing diffuses the posturing and puffery of our strangely confrontational society better than well placed humor. Thank you Mr. Twain for being brilliant yet again!!!
