I can relate to Mark here because obviously my lack of higher education shows up now and then. But I haven’t let that stop me from learning what books don’t teach and what life is really about.

A few Mark Twain Quotes

“‘Classic’–a book which people praise and don’t read.”

“Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; truth isn’t.”

“The funniest things are forbidden.”

“There are no people who are quite so vulgar as the over-refined.”

" If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything "

“When you fish for love, bait with your heart, not your brain.”

“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.”

“Give every day the chance to become the most beautiful day of your life.”

That "truth thing" was engrained in me as a child and has served me extremely well for going on 68 years now.
As my Grandmother said..."makes life much more easy....you don't even have to remember WHO you told WHAT to..... only one story " !

I don’t know Oz, they’ve already destroyed so much history this past year I don’t know if he stands a chance. His legacy may end with our generation. They’re tearing this country apart. Just say’n…🐟on
