Mark Twain said so many funny and clever things. Man is the only animal that blushes - or needs to. Denial ain't just a river in Egypt. All generalizations are false, including this one. If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And If it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first. It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog. Books, Rocks Chairs, Historical Photos, Quote, Twain Smoke, Samuel Clemen, Marktwain, Front Porches, Mark Twain

Mark Twain was born on the day of the appearance of Halley's Comet in 1835, and died on the day of its next appearance in 1910. He himself predicted this in 1909, when he said: "I came in with Halley's Comet in 1835. It is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it."
Twain . I realize now, that people who do not like to read, usually, are people who have a hard time reading, or have an attention deficit disorder. Something that should have been dealt with when the child was young...perhaps a brain-eye disconnect. Don't always blame the child, please. It isn't their fault.
"I came in with Halley's Comet in 1835...It will be the greatest disappointment of my life if I don't go out with Halley's Comet. The Almighty has said, no doubt: 'Now here are these two unaccountable freaks; they came in together, they must go out together.'" Oh, how I love that story.
