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

    But alas! I never could keep a promise. I do not blame myself for this weakness, because the fault must lie in my physical organization. It is likely that such a very liberal amount of space was given to the organ which enables me to make promises, that the organ which should enable me to keep them was crowded out. But I grieve not. I like no half-way things. I had rather have one faculty nobly developed than two faculties of mere ordinary capacity.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    ...he came towards them early in the morning, walking on the sea.
    Bible: New Testament, Mark 6:48.

    God’s inhumanity to man makes countless thousands mourn.
    —Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
