Mark Twain Quotes of Wit and Wisdom Excerpt :

Want to enjoy the wit and wisdom of the "greatest humorist the United States has produced?" Need some wise, funny, and timeless quotes with many of the truisms from our everyday lives? Looking for a perfect gift? Then, this is the book for you! Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known by the pen name Mark Twain was called "the father of American literature" by William Faulkner. He is not only revered as the quintessential American writer but is also among the most quoted. Mark Twain had something witty and wise to say on just about any topic, and his words resonate surprisingly well today as they did more than a century ago. "Get your facts first, then you can distort them as much as you please" sounds as if someone is talking about today's political landscape. But those are what Mark Twain said in 1890! He was a defender of women's rights and believed, "What would men be without women? Scarce, sir...mighty scarce." He was against slavery and commented, "Our Civil War was a blot on our history, but not as great a blot as the buying and selling of Negro souls." He advised people to "keep a tidy soul" and believed that "The secret of getting ahead is getting started!" His wit and wisdom are very pragmatic and easy to understand. In his mind, "Wit, by itself, is of little account. It becomes of moment only when grounded on wisdom" and "Wisdom teaches us that none but birds should go out early, and that not even birds should do it unless they are out of worms!" If you are looking for a highly entertaining and inspiring collection of epigrams and witticisms by America's greatest humorist, then "Mark Twain Quotes of Wit and Wisdom" is 100% for you!

America is cat crazy, and Mark Twain may have been the American writer most crazy about cats. From his boyhood in Hannibal, Missouri, to his last years in Connecticut, Mark Twain spent much of his life surrounded by cats, and they stalk through many of his best-known books, including The Innocents Aboard, Roughing It, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, and Puddn’head Wilson. In this lighthearted book, Twain scholar Mark Dawidziak explores the writer’s lifelong devotion to cats through stories, excerpts, quotes, photos, and illustrations, illuminating a little-known side of this famous writer’s life that will appeal to Twain aficionados and cat lovers alike.

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Excerpt :

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (often shortened to Huck Finn) is a novel written by American humorist Mark Twain. It is commonly used and accounted as one of the first Great American Novels. It is also one of the first major American novels written using Local Color Regionalism, or vernacular, told in the first person by the eponymous Huckleberry "Huck" Finn, best friend of Tom Sawyer and hero of three other Mark Twain books.The book is noted for its colorful description of people and places along the Mississippi River. By satirizing Southern antebellum society that was already a quarter-century in the past by the time of publication, the book is an often scathing look at entrenched attitudes, particularly racism. The drifting journey of Huck and his friend Jim, a runaway slave, down the Mississippi River on their raft may be one of the most enduring images of escape and freedom in all of American literature.

Mark Twain on Common Sense Excerpt :

Revered as one of America’s greatest humorists and author of the “Great American Novel” (The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn), the words of Samuel Langhorne Clemens—more commonly known as Mark Twain—resonate as strongly today as they did when he wrote them more than a century ago. A close friend of Nikola Tesla and heralded by William Faulkner as “the father of American literature,” Twain’s wit, wisdom, and influence continues through the present day. Printer, typesetter, steamboat pilot, miner, reporter, journalist, author, inventor, humorist, investor, publisher, lecturer—Mark Twain was known as many things during his lifetime and has had at least as many titles thrust upon him since this death, but perhaps what he is best known for is being a source of good old-fashioned common sense. Whatever the topic—whether science and technology, life and love, history and culture, travel and exploration, civil rights and human rights, labor and politics, or ethics and religion—Twain had much to say and many ways to say it. Here, culled from his greatest novels, speeches, letters, conversations, and lectures is the best wisdom and advice—humorous, sardonic, and insightful as always.
