Mark Twain Trail Quote of the Day – Monday – February 15, 2021


“Mr. Roosevelt is the Tom Sawyer of the political world of the twentieth century; always showing off; always hunting for a chance to show off; in his frenzied imagination the Great Republic is a vast Barnum circus with him for a clown and the whole world for audience; he would go to Halifax for half a chance to show off and he would go to hell for a whole one.”  Mark Twain, Autobiography of Mark Twain, Vol. 3, 2015
