Just some thoughts:
In 1910 Mark Twain died. He had left so many of his personal writings, letters etc. with instructions they were not to be opened, read until he had been dead one hundred years. Those years have now passed and I have been trying to make my way through some of his writings. Why I am not sure.
The man had a way with words.
"If everybody was satisfied with himself there would be no heroes."
"Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live."
Two quotes I particularly ...well they make me smile.
"At two o'clock in the morning I feel old and sinful but at eight o'clock, when I am shaving I feel young and ready to hunt trouble."
"Supposing is good.................but finding out is even better."
