Mark Twain Trail Quote of the Day – Tuesday – May 25, 2021


“For me its balmy airs are always blowing, its summer seas flashing in the sun; the pulsing of its surf is in my ear; I can see its garlanded crags, its leaping cascades, its plumy palms drowsing by the shore, its remote summits floating like islands above the cloud-rack; I can feel the spirit of its woody solitudes, I hear the plashing of the brooks; in my nostrils still lives the breath of flowers that perished twenty years ago.”  Mark Twain on Hawaii



Honolulu, Hawaii

Mark Twain Trail Quote of the Day – Saturday – May 22, 2021


“This is the charmingest place we have ever lived in, for repose, & restfulness, & superb scenery whose beauty undergoes a perpetual processional change from one miracle to another, yet never runs short of fresh surprises & new inventions. We shall always come here for the summers if we can.”  Mark Twain, Letter to Joseph Twichell from Weggis, Switzerland, 31 July 1897
