Mark Twain was lit, ain’t it?
The larger-than-life creator of Huck and Tom is arguably the most wickedly beloved writer to show up in the American fiction scene. Be it the thoroughly enjoyable Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn and his mate or the satirical portrayal of society in The Gilded Age, there are few who can abstain from delighting in heady concoction of wit and wisdom that his writing is spiked with.
Who can resist a quote or twain by the Good Ol’ Mark who always had remarkable things to say. Well, unlike the poor attempt at punning in the preceding line though, Twain knew darn well how to tickle the funny bone. And he’d tickle it till you’d die. Of laughter of course. So let’s get high with these 25 quote-shots as we toast to Mark Twain on his Birthday.
Happy Birthday Mark Twain!
