Mark Twain’s Writing Goals
2/15/2006 11:19:55 AM
Mark Twain, in a letter to Andrew Lang

 

"I have never tried in even one single instance to cultivate the cultivated classes. I was not equipped for it, either by native gifts or training. And I never had any ambition in that direction, but always hunted for bigger game -- the masses. I have seldom deliberately tried to instruct them, but have done my best to entertain them. To simply amuse them would have satisfied my dearest ambition at any time."

 

And here are some new twists on some oldies: 

 

Is a sound wave that strikes no capacitance of resonant frequency not still a sound wave?  (Does a tree falling in the forest make a sound if no live thing hears it?)        

Is an old saw a cliché if one has never heard it before?
