Mark Twain's 176TH Birthday today!

 I really love to read and write.
Mark Twain is not my favorite Writer, but I enjoy his works and his witty literature.
I enjoy some of his poetry and I really like The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

This post doesn't have much to do with beauty, but beauty and humor can be found in literature.
It is a joy to laugh, I think it is one of life's best medicines.

Here is the Google Doodle honoring Mark Twain via Youtube and a Washington Post article on it's origins;

Wikipedia Info. on Mark Twain's life and works;

And a punny Columnist's commentary on Mark Twain's birthday;

Here are my favorite Quotes of Mark Twains's (some of them may contain words I would not use);
"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

"All you need is ignorance and confidence; then success is sure." 
"The holy passion of Friendship is of so sweet and steady and loyal and enduring a nature that it will last through a whole lifetime, if not asked to lend money."

"Now is the accepted time to make your regular, annual, good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual."

"The human race has one really effective weapon, and that is laughter."

    Have a great day! And Happy 1st Day of December tomorrow!
