Looking for a perfect gift? Then, this is the book for you! Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known by the pen name Mark Twain was called "the father of American literature" by William Faulkner. He is not only revered as the quintessential American writer but is also among the most quoted. Mark Twain had something witty and wise to say on just about any topic, and his words resonate surprisingly well today as they did more than a century ago. "Get your facts first, then you can distort them as much as you please" sounds as if someone is talking about today's political landscape. But those are what Mark Twain said in 1890! He was a defender of women's rights and believed, "What would men be without women? Scarce, sir...mighty scarce." He was against slavery and commented, "Our Civil War was a blot on our history, but not as great a blot as the buying and selling of Negro souls." He advised people to "keep a tidy soul" and believed that "The secret of getting ahead is getting started!" His wit and wisdom are very pragmatic and easy to understand. In his mind, "Wit, by itself, is of little account. It becomes of moment only when grounded on wisdom" and "Wisdom teaches us that none but birds should go out early, and that not even birds should do it unless they are out of worms!"
