Some things “can’t ever be said. And besides, they would require a library–& a pen warmed-up in hell.”

—Mark Twain to W.D. Howells

  1. I love Clemens’ dark cynicism, Rick; in fact, he’s my role model! If you need any books to read when/if you retire, I currently own volumes 1 and 2 of his “autobiography,” and, not surprisingly, it’s full of the sardonic humor like the one you quote. It’d be an honor to share them with you.
