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

    Lump the whole thing! Say that the Creator made Italy from designs by Michael Angelo!
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    I have no connections here; only gusty collisions,
    rootless seedlings forced into bloom, that collapse.
    ...
    I am the Visiting Poet: a real unicorn,
    a wind-up plush dodo, a wax museum of the Movement.

    Marge Piercy (b. 1936)

    ... I suppose that it is not so easy to go home and it takes a bit of time to make a son out of a stranger.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    The mark of the man of the world is absence of pretension. He does not make a speech; he takes a low business-tone, avoids all brag, is nobody, dresses plainly, promises not at all, performs much, speaks in monosyllables, hugs his fact. He calls his employment by its lowest name, and so takes from evil tongues their sharpest weapon. His conversation clings to the weather and the news, yet he allows himself to be surprised into thought, and the unlocking of his learning and philosophy.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Intellectual “work” is misnamed; it is a pleasure, a dissipation, and is its own highest reward.
    —Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    If ... boyhood and youth are but vanity, must it not be our ambition to become men?
    Vincent Van Gogh (1853–1890)
