“History does not repeat itself, but it rhymes.” — Mark Twain
“Samuel Langhorne Clements (1835-1910), better known as Mark Twain, began his career as a typesetter, a newspaperman, and a Mississippi riverboat pilot. Eventually the author of roughly fifty books and essays, his Adventures of Huckleberry Finn still contends for the elusive title of the Great American Novel.” — Lapham, Lewis H., editor. Lapham’s Quarterly. Volume 1.1.
