I will dim the lights as we take our seats at the large round table with its worn, white, delicate cloth and a crystal ball in the center. Join hands and close your eyes. Who do you see?
I imagine sitting on a sunny porch on a hot summer day sipping lemonade with the insanely intelligent and sweetly snarky Mark Twain. In his classic white suit and scruffy, laughing white beard, a cigar poking out of the side of his mouth, Mr. Twain gazes thoughtfully at the fluffy white clouds above magnificent magnolia trees before he begins his oration. I could sit here all day and listen to the witticisms flowing from his mouth.
At least we have what's been recorded (these are by Mark Twain from Brainy Quotes)
Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt.
If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.
Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
