Mark Twain: American author and humorist.
- When you catch an adjective, kill it. No, I don't mean utterly, but kill most of them -- then the rest will be valuable. ¶ |
- To string incongruities and absurdities together in a wandering and sometimes purposeless way, and seem innocently unaware that they are absurdities, is the basis of the American art, if my position is correct. ¶ |
