The MMOB Daily Quote - Mark Twain Sunday

A very HAPPY DAY to all the moms out there from MMOB.

With that in mind, today's
Mark Twain Sunday is all about LIFE

"Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life." - Notebook, 1898

"Let us endeavor so to live that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry." - The Tragedy of Pudd'nhead Wilson and the Comedy of the Extraordinary Twins

"It is the epitome of life. The first half of life consists of the capacity to enjoy without the chance; the last half consists of the chance without the capacity."
- Letter to Edward Dimmit, July 19, 1901

"Oh Death where is thy sting! It has none. But life has." - Notebook, 1894

"Only he who has seen better days and lives to see better days again knows their full value." - Notebook, 1902

"But such is human life. Here today and gone tomorrow. A dream--a shadow--a ripple on the water--a thing for invisible gods to sport with for a season and then toss idly by--idly by. It is rough."- "Closed Out" sketch, included in San Francisco letter to Virginia City Territorial Enterprise, January 28, 1866

Cheers! - Jason
