Twain Quotations

All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn.
Ernest Hemingway

I particularly admire are Mark Twain and Jerome K. Jerome who wrote in a certain tone of voice which was humane and understanding of humanity, but always ready to annotate its little foibles. I think I'd lay my cards down on that, and say that it's that that I'm trying to do.
Terry Pratchett

I bought a book of Mark Twain quotes. That's about my speed. I'll read a couple quotes and put it down.
Kid Rock

Students don't know who Mark Twain was because he wasn't on the test.
Kinky Friedman

My mum was never too keen on TV, so we kids all went to the library and got books out. Right from the start, I loved the works of Mark Twain. Every time I read about Tom Sawyer, I'd go out and do something low-level naughty, just like him.
John Grisham
