Today’s famous birthday:
Mark Twain was born on this day in 1835.
The witty American writer is often quoted — his humor is timeless.
Here are some old favorites of mine:
“Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living.
The world owes you nothing.
It was here first.”
The following two seem to be custom-made for today’s “climate” — political or otherwise.
“Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please.”
“Let us make a special effort to stop communicating with each other, so we can have some conversation.”
And this for those of us with an overactive imagination.
“I’ve lived through some terrible things in my life,
some of which actually happened.”
This next one for you animal lovers.
“If animals could speak, the dog would be a blundering outspoken fellow;
but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a word too much.”
Saving the best for last: something we can all use more of it — today and always.
“Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.”
Yes. Kindness is the universal language we can all understand.
Thanks for visiting.
