Description


Familiarity breeds contempt--and children. It takes a heap of sense to write good nonsense. Never tell a lie--except for practice.
This attractive gift edition of the renowned American humorist's epigrams and witticisms features hundreds of eminently quotable quips. Discover Twain's views on life, love, history, culture, travel, and other topics with these pithy aphorisms from his fiction, essays, letters, and autobiography.

About the Author


After the Civil War, Samuel Clemens (1835-1910) left his small town to seek work as a riverboat pilot. As Mark Twain, the Missouri native found his place in the world. Author, journalist, lecturer, wit, and sage, Twain created enduring works that have enlightened and amused readers of all ages for generations.
