Of course we all know the American author and humorist Mark Twain (that was his pen name btw...Samuel Langhorne Clemens was he legal name) for his novel "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" and its sequel, "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn". Twain himself was often called "the Great American Novel" but did you know he was also a successful public speaker, reporter and a master riverboat pilot? A true Renaissance man in every respect for his eclectic endeavors and life pursuits. Twain's clever witticisms and satire earned him the praise of critics and peers alike. What's more, he enjoyed friendships with presidents, artists, industrialists, and even European royalty. Being successful, popular and an avid smoker (Twain preferred a pipe) he was was bound to have a few quotable quotes for us and indeed he does. Here are few of our favorites.
