Mark Twain

 

Samuel Clemens (alias Mark Twain, c. 1835-1910)

“Although my book is intended  mainly for the entertainment of boys and girls, I hope it will not be shunned by men and women on that account, for part of my plan has been to try to pleasantly remind adults of what they once were themselves, and of how they felt and thought and talked, and what queer enterprises they sometimes ingaged in”

  • From the preface of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, by Mark Tain (originally published 1876).
