The MMOB Daily Quote - Mark Twain Sunday

Welcome to another Mark Twain Sunday here on The MMOB Daily Quote.

Today's words of wisdom from the man in white are focused on
DOGS and are all pulled from

""Let a sleeping dog lie." It is a poor old maxim, & nothing in it: anybody can do it, you don't have to employ a dog."
- inscription written in copy of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn to Margery Clinton, August 18, 1908

"Heaven goes by favor. If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in."
- Mark Twain, a Biography

"If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man."
- Pudd'nhead Wilson's Calendar

"A composite dog is a dog that's made up of all the valuable qualities that's in the dog breed--kind of a syndicate; and a mongrel is made up of the riffraff that's left over."
- Mark Twain in Eruption, p. 222. Used in "His Grandfather's Old Ram" speech.

"The dog is a gentleman; I hope to go to his heaven, not man's."
- Letter to W. D. Howells, 4/2/1899

Cheers! - Jason
