To get the week started off on a positive note, I wanted to share with you 11 of my favorite Mark Twain quotes.
Did you know….Mark Twain was born as Samuel Langhorne Clemens on November 30, 1835 in the town of Florida, Missouri?
He was born right after Halley’s Comet appeared and the comet was scheduled to return in 1910.
He told people in 1909, “I came in with Halley’s Comet in 1835. It is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it. It will be the greatest disappointment of my life if I don’t go out with Halley’s Comet.”
As he predicted, he died on April 21, 1910, of a heart attack, the day after Halley’s Comet made its closest pass. He was 74 years old.
Clemens’ pen name, Mark Twain, comes from a term signifying two fathoms (12 feet), a safe depth of water for steamboats.
