A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

By Mark Twain QUOTATION: That is the way we are made: we don’t reason, where we feel; we just feel.
ATTRIBUTION: Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910), U.S. author. Hank Morgan, in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, ch. 11 (1889).

QUOTATION: She had exactly the German way: whatever was in her mind to be delivered, whether a mere remark, or a sermon, or a cyclopedia, or the history of a war, she would get it into a single sentence or die. Whenever the literary German dives into a sentence, that is the last you are going to see of him till he emerges on the other side of the Atlantic with his verb in his mouth.
ATTRIBUTION: Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910), U.S. author. Hank Morgan, in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, ch. 22 (1889).

QUOTATION: Intellectual “work” is misnamed; it is a pleasure, a dissipation, and is its own highest reward.
ATTRIBUTION: Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910), U.S. author. A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, ch. 28 (1889).
