Second time through this one. Always enjoyable and enlightening. I am continually amazed at how wise this man was.

"Loyalty to petrified opinions never yet broke a chain or freed a human soul in the world -- and it never will."

Mark Twain was not only a great American writer, but he was a very wise and witty man. These quotes made me smile and made me think. You can't go wrong with Mark Twain! I wish I could have a conversation with him. But, he influences my writing from beyond the grave.
