Happy birthday to Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens). He's 176 years old today. Thank you Mark Twain for bringing us such wonderful novels as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Those may be some of the most famous of his works. Others include The Prince and the Pauper and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (you can read this particular one online here).
His are classics that will never be forgotten. Thank you for a childhood full of adventure. Happy birthday.
It's lovely to live on a raft. We had the sky up there, all speckled with stars, and we used to lay on our backs and look up at them, and discuss about whether they was made or only just happened. - The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
