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

    I was gratified to be able to answer promptly, and I did. I said I didn’t know.

    A fallen tree does not rise again.
    Hawaiian saying no. 2412, ‘lelo No’Eau, collected, translated, and annotated by Mary Kawena Pukui, Bishop Museum Press, Hawaii (1983)

    No: until I want the protection of Massachusetts to be extended to me in some distant Southern port, where my liberty is endangered, or until I am bent solely on building up an estate at home by peaceful enterprise, I can afford to refuse allegiance to Massachusetts, and her right to my property and life. It costs me less in every sense to incur the penalty of disobedience to the State than it would to obey. I should feel as if I were worth less in that case.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    “Crucify him!”
    Bible: New Testament, Mark 15:13.

    The crowd at Jesus’ trial.

    The low level which commercial morality has reached in America is deplorable. We have humble God fearing Christian men among us who will stoop to do things for a million dollars that they ought not to be willing to do for less than 2 millions.
    —Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    If ... boyhood and youth are but vanity, must it not be our ambition to become men?
