Mark Twain Revisited

Mark Twain once said: “The coldest winter I ever spent was in the Goodkin’s house in January.”

Okay, he didn’t really say that. But he would have if he stayed here. Our hallway heater just ain’t got enough ooomph to warm all six rooms when the temperature outside is in the 40’s. And for some bizarre reason, we refuse to keep the heat on all night. It’s freezin’ in here!

Do you care?……… I didn’t think so. But so as to not entirely waste your time, I’ll offer some juicy Mark Twain quotes. Real ones.

• Training is everything…cauliflower is nothing but a cabbage with a college education.

• It were not best that we should all think alike; it is difference of opinion that makes horse-races.

• There is no distinctly native American criminal class except Congress.

• When angry, count to four. When very angry, swear.

• “Classic.” A book people praise and don’t read.

• Man is the only animal that blushes. Or needs to.

And of course, the famous real quote paraphrased above:

• The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.
