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

    But that’s always the way; it don’t make no difference whether you do right or wrong, a person’s conscience ain’t got no sense, and just goes for him anyway.... It takes up more room than all the rest of a person’s insides, and yet ain’t no good, nohow. Tom Sawyer thinks the same.

    Familiarity breeds contempt—and children.
    —Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Throw the children into the river; civilization has given us too
    many.
    It is better to die than to grow up and find that you are colored.
    Pluck the stars out of the heavens. The stars mark our destiny. The
    stars marked my destiny.
    I am tired of civilization.
    Fenton Johnson (1886–1958)
