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

    The face of the water, in time, became a wonderful book—a book that was a dead language to the uneducated passenger, but which told its mind to me without reserve, delivering its most cherished secrets as clearly as if it uttered them with a voice. And it was not a book to be read once and thrown aside, for it had a new story to tell every day.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Your remark that clams will lie quiet if music be played to them, was superfluous—entirely superfluous.
    —Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Both magic and religion are based strictly on mythological tradition, and they also both exist in the atmosphere of the miraculous, in a constant revelation of their wonder-working power. They both are surrounded by taboos and observances which mark off their acts from those of the profane world.
    Bronislaw Malinowski (1884–1942)
