nothing quite like a good quote

"Man is the only animal that blushes. Or needs to."
"Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities. Truth isn't. "
"If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything."
"What a wee little part of a person's life are his acts and his words! His real life is led in his head, and is known to none but himself."

- Mark Twain

100 years after his death, Twain's unexpurgated autobiography is set to come out this November.

Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer - the names bring up distant memories of high school English Non-Detail. Time to hit Refresh. And rediscover. I reckon.
