I have been in something of a reading funk for the last four months, but I recently found a book I sped through with a smile: a collection of Mark Twain quotes.
Like the foregoing, which is certainly my motto: “Do not put off until tomorrow what can be put until day-after-tomorrow.”
And this one, which encapsulates my pen and ink problem, but makes me feel better about it: “A human being has a natural desire to have more of a good thing than he needs.”
And then there’s this comment that Twain had Satan make to a newcomer to Hell.
I guess even in the late 1800s and early 1900s, we Chicagoans must have been enthusiastic civic boosters, and a little hard to take.
Ah well, we love our city. At least we’re number one.
