Famous quotes containing the word twain:

    It was only just words, words,—they meant nothing in the world to him, I might just as well have whistled. Words realize nothing, vivify nothing to you, unless you have suffered in your own person the thing which the words try to describe.
    —Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
