kulcha tursdy: Mark Twain

Short & Sweet today.

Mark Twain’s long been something of a hero of mine.  Not for his books, but for his wit and wisdom.

This seems apt for today:-

“Now, isn’t imagination a precious thing? It peoples the earth with all manner of wonders, strange beasts and birds, angels, cherubim and seraphim. And it has to be exercised. No child should be permitted to grow up without exercise for imagination. It enriches life for him. It makes things wonderful and beautiful.”
– speech in Elmira, April 1907 (reprinted in Mark Twain in Elmira by Jerome & Wisbey)
