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

    It’s lovely to live on a raft. We had the sky, up there, all speckled with stars, and we used to lay on our backs and look up at them, and discuss about whether they was made, or only just happened—Jim he allowed they was made, but I allowed they happened; I judged it would have took too long to make so many.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.
    Bible: New Testament, Mark 3:24,25.

    Barring that natural expression of villainy which we all have, the man looked honest enough.
    —Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
