Besides being one of the most treasured writers in American history, Mark Twain was also one of the most quotable. This comprehensive compendium collects over 500 of his best quips and remarks.

Born in Missouri under the name Samuel Langhorne Clemens, his pen name, Mark Twain, was river-boat slang for 12 feet of water. Clemens adopted the name Mark Twain after he established his voice as a journalist. Under Mark Twain he wrote the classic fiction satire novels The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn on the nature of slavery and racism at the time.
