Famous quotes containing the words mark twain, museum, home, mark, twain and/or boyhood:

    Always do right. This will gratify some people, and astonish the rest.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Always clung to by barnacles.
    Hawaiian saying no. 2661, ‘lelo No’Eau, collected, translated, and annotated by Mary Kawena Pukui, Bishop Museum Press, Hawaii (1983)

    Wild air, world-mothering air,
    Nestling me everywhere,
    That each eyelash or hair
    Girdles; goes home betwixt
    The fleeciest, frailest-fixed
    Snowflake; that’s fairly mixed
    With, riddles, and is rife
    In every least thing’s life.
    Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–1889)

    Now mark me how I will undo myself.
    I give this heavy weight from off my head,
    And this unwieldy sceptre from my hand,
    The pride of kingly sway from out my heart.
    With mine own tears I wash away my balm,
    With mine own hands I give away my crown.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    It was only just words, words,—they meant nothing in the world to him, I might just as well have whistled. Words realize nothing, vivify nothing to you, unless you have suffered in your own person the thing which the words try to describe.
    —Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    I looked at my daughters, and my boyhood picture, and appreciated the gift of parenthood, at that moment, more than any other gift I have ever been given. For what person, except one’s own children, would want so deeply and sincerely to have shared your childhood? Who else would think your insignificant and petty life so precious in the living, so rich in its expressiveness, that it would be worth partaking of what you were, to understand what you are?
    Gerald Early (20th century)
