Mark Twain had a greater influence on my childhood development than any other writer. Here are a few of his quotes:
“It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you in trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.”
“Loyalty to petrified opinion never broke a chain or freed a human soul.”
“It’s no wonder that truth is stranger than fiction. Fiction has to make sense.”
Benjamin Franklin and Mark Twain gave Americans their sense of humor. Whether you’ve ever read anything written by them or not, they form the underlying basis for our American humor. Deep inside all their wit lies the truth.
