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

    In the first place God made idiots. This was for practice. Then He made School Boards.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    They will mark the stone-battlements
    And the circle of them
    With a bright stain.
    They will cast out the dead
    A sight for Priam’s queen to lament
    And her frightened daughters.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    It is the will of God that we must have critics, and missionaries, and Congressmen, and humorists, and we must bear the burden. Meantime, I seem to have been drifting into criticism myself. But that is nothing. At the worst, criticism is nothing more than a crime, and I am not unused to that.
    —Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
