Happy 168th Birthday, Mark Twain!
Edited on Sun Nov-30-03 09:48 AM by Richardo
November 30, 1835 :party:

Sam Clemens/Mark Twain is one of the most quoted Americans of all time. Check out this one - and see how little things have changed...

Statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception.
- "Chronicle of Young Satan"
