"Books are the liberated spirits of men."
Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest
Twain was born and died in years when Halley's Comet passed by Earth: Twain says, "I came in with Halley's Comet in 1835. It is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it. It will be the greatest disappointment of my life if I don't go with Halley's Comet. The Almighty has said, no doubt: 'Now here are these two unaccountable freaks; they came in together, they must go out together.'
During his lifetime, Mark Twain allowed his name and image to be used on such things as flour, pens, cigars, and Oldsmobiles. After his death in 1910, his brand has been used on lemons and oranges (in 1923), a line of clothing (1940s), and coal (1950s).
Who is Samuel Clemens you ask? If you haven`t figured it out by the facts above, This is Samuel Clemens AKA Mark Twain
Happy Birthday Mr. Twain(Clemens)
