The dog is a gentleman; I hope to go to his heaven, not man’s.”   —   Mark Twain

(I am definitely with ol’ Sam on this one.  Seeing some departed friends and family might be enjoyable, but I think I’d rather spend eternity with all of my pets.  I speak with two of them each night.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Mark Twain - HISTORY

Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.”   —   Mark Twain

(So be kind, folks!  Just like the old expression about catching more flies with honey, than with vinegar.  It just gets better results.  Besides . . . mean people suck!  Another one of today’s coincidences; as I was getting ready to write this post something from Operation Kindness popped up on my Facebook feed!  Apparently, November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month!  So, if you need a little company consider adopting a dog or cat that is five years old, or older.  They are ready made for loving!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

There ain’t no way to find out why a snorer can’t hear himself snore.”   —   Mark Twain

(And again, we saw this exact quote back in April of this year!  I don’t know what is going on over at Cryptoquote world, but I wish they would only give us really old re-runs, and not these recent ones.  It wasn’t even a difficult one.  We don’t even have anyone in particular to complain to.  It could be the property of Word-Game-World.com, so I’m going to provide their Contact Us url below.  Feel free to use it to log a complaint.  I think my earlier estimation was incorrect, folks.  I am deleting the link.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

How Mark Twain Became a Free Trader - The Globalist

Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because fiction is obliged to stick to the possibilities; truth isn’t.”   —   Mark Twain

(I don’t think that anyone could have written the story of the 2016 U.S. Presidential election, or the past 3 and 3/4 years.  Not even Dean Koontz, or Clive Barker!  It’s been the nightmare that I can’t seem to wake up from.  If all good things must come to an end then I guess that this too shall pass.  Don’t give up hope, folks!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can’t read them.”   —   Mark Twain

(Whenever my wife sees just about any book, she says:  Ehh, I’ll wait for the movie!  Let me tell you though, reading at a sub-vocal level is only a few steps above illiteracy.  The affliction has really held me back.  I would love to read more books, but they just take me forever to get through.  Be well and do goof, friends.)   —   YUR
