"Mark Twain Is Called The Father Of American Literature By Many,and For Good Reason"

I have enjoyed reading books by Mark Twain.I love Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn...I love his quotes!
"If you tell the truth,you don't have to remember anything"
"Good friends,good books and a sleepy conscience:this is the ideal life."
"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions.Small people always do that,but the really great make you feel that you,too,can become great."
"Never tell the truth to people who are not worthy of it."
"It's not the size of the dog in the fight,it's the size of the fight in the dog."

I believe he was a man far ahead of his time...love his quotes like. .".Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow." or "Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect". I wish that we had him around today to help simplify and sort out this mess of a world we are living in....

Thank you for reading and commenting!<br />
I have not yet read this book...sounds like a great and interesting book!♫♫♫

Have you read the new book on Twain's childhood yet? I think that he forbid the publication of his memoires till one hundred years after his death. Not only every story but almost every line in his novels are from the summers that he spent as a teenager at his uncle's farm. Val :-)
