About Mark Twain

 

Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910), known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer. He was lauded as the “greatest humorist the United States has produced,”and “the father of American literature”. He also wrote poetry, short stories, essays, and non-fiction.
Twain was in great demand as a featured speaker, performing solo humorous talks similar to modern stand-up comedy. He gave paid talks to many men’s clubs.

Twain’s prediction about his death:
Twain was born two weeks after Halley’s Comet’s closest approach in 1835.
In 1909 he said: 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 out 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”.
Twain’s prediction was accurate; he died of a heart attack on April 21, 1910, one day after the comet’s closest approach to Earth.

Three additional quotes by Mark Twain for this week:

“Worrying is like paying a debt you don’t owe.”
Mark Twain

“When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained.”
Mark Twain

“I am an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened.”
Mark Twain

My thoughts on these quotes

Mark Twain has so many great quotes that I’m going to put together a selection of my favorites in the future, and I’ve picked out some fun ones for this week. I like the quote about reading or not reading the newspaper, in no case are you truly informed. Saturday’s quote used to really hold true, but today it’s not necessarily so, as nudity has become very popular over the years, both in stage performances by singers, artistic nude photos of celebrities, and in advertising. Fortunately, politicians do not undress. If you find yourself in the majority, stop, you are a unique creature that belongs to a unique minority. Also this “Worrying is like paying a debt you don’t owe.” is great. People often make unnecessary worries and imagine black and bad scenarios of what could all go wrong. In reality, however, it always turns out the way that is best for us. It’s okay to be prepared, but you don’t have to be pessimistic.
These are some of my thoughts on these quotes for this week. I will be happy if you share your thoughts with me in the comments.

    As famous as Mark Twain is, I have never read an entire book of his!  I did not realize he was such a comedian and since I enjoy a good laugh, I shoud read his writings.  I really enjoyed the quotes.  They are quite profound!  The facts about his life and death were very interesting and memorable.

      I recommend you read some of his work. I read some of his cult books as children, and then as an elder, and as I read them as an elder, I understood the meanings much more.

      Thank you for visiting, I wish you a wonderful week,

    I love the age quote. I turned 29 yesterday and decided that I no longer care about my age. Yes I will be 30 next year, but I don’t feel like it and I don’t plan on acting any older. I definitely don’t mind my age and that’s for sure. Thanks for sharing these great quotes. They really have lightened my mood up!

    • Nina Reply

      Happy 29th birthday! I’m glad you don’t bother with the years, you’ll see, every next decade is better than the last because you’re wiser for a whole decade!
      I wish you a nice and successful week,

    I really like this quote,

    The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don’t want, drink what you don’t like, and do what you’d rather not.

    I’m reaching my mid 30’s and this is a great amusing reminder to take care of my health.
    I have never really read about who Mark Twain is, but thanks to this post, I will sure look him up. Thanks for the funny quotes!

    Lovely post, Nina, I like it. I didn’t know Mark Twain was a humorist! My favorite quote of him is “It’s easier to fool people than to convince them they have been fooled.”

    Like you, I love his remark about the newspapers. But unlike you I would love to see politicians undressed. Then the tone of voice would alter, is my guess. It would surely take care of a fresh wind (not literally, but metaphorically speaking 🙂 )

    Great idea to have a quote for each day. That can be such a big inspiration to make something of that day. Thanks!

      Interesting thinking about politicians if they were to undress. I just have to agree with you. Thanks for the great comment!
      I wish you a nice and successful week,

    Fantastic! I so love Mark Twain and think he is quite underrated. There are so many great books apart from Tom Sawyer that prove what a great writer he is.

    Mark Twain was a very funny guy. I watched a documentery about him, he was a hoot to hang with.
