27 Mark Twain Quotes To Celebrate His Birthday

Happy birthday to Mark Twain.

To celebrate the birthday of America's great humorist and novelist the Huffington Post offers 27 of Twain's quotes.

Samuel Langhorne Clemens, the man behind the pseudonym that brought us such classic works of American literature as The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, would be celebrating his 177th birthday if he were alive today.

Mark Twain's quotes are among the most shared and beloved, perhaps due to his wisdom acquired while working a number of jobs: He was a typesetter, steamboat pilot, miner, travel writer, and investor in technological inventions.

“There was never yet an uninteresting life. Such a thing is an impossibility. Inside of the dullest exterior there is a drama, a comedy, and a tragedy,” wrote Mark Twain.
