Mark Twain Trail Quote of the Day – Sunday – January 24, 2021


“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.”  Mark Twain, “Closed Out” sketch, included in San Francisco letter to Virginia City Territorial Enterprise, 1/28/1866
