Huckleberry Finn

By

Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] QUOTATION: She had more sand in her than any girl I ever see: in my opinion she was just full of sand. It sounds like flattery, but it ain’t no flattery.
ATTRIBUTION: Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910), U.S. author. Huck, in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, ch. 28 (1885).

QUOTATION: I reckon a body that ups and tells the truth when he is in a tight place, is taking considerable many resks; though I ain’t had no experience, and can’t say for certain.
ATTRIBUTION: Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910), U.S. author. Huck, in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, ch. 28 (1885).

QUOTATION: There was books too.... One was “Pilgrim’s Progress,” about a man that left his family it didn’t say why. I read considerable in it now and then. The statements was interesting, but tough.
ATTRIBUTION: Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910), U.S. author. Huck, in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, ch. 17 (1885).

QUOTATION: There ain’t nothing more to write about, and I am rotten glad of it, because if I’d a knowed what a trouble it was to make a book I wouldn’t a tackled it, and I ain’t agoing to no more.
ATTRIBUTION: Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910), U.S. author. Huck, in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, ch. 43 (1885).

QUOTATION: We said there warn’t no home like a raft, after all. Other places do seem so cramped up and smothery, but a raft don’t. You feel mighty free and easy and comfortable on a raft.
ATTRIBUTION: Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910), U.S. author. Huck, in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, ch. 18 (1885).

QUOTATION: It don’t make no difference whether you do right or wrong, a person’s conscience ain’t got no sense, and just goes for him anyway. If I had a yaller dog that didn’t know no more than a person’s conscience does, I would pison him.
ATTRIBUTION: Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910), U.S. author. Huck, in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, ch. 33 (1885).

QUOTATION: Pray for me! I reckon if she knowed me she’d take a job that was more nearer her size. But I bet she done it, just the same—she was just the kind. She had the grit to pray for Judus if she took the notion.
ATTRIBUTION: Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910), U.S. author. Huck, in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, ch. 28 (1885).

QUOTATION: But that’s always the way; it don’t make no difference whether you do right or wrong, a person’s conscience ain’t got no sense, and just goes for him anyway.... It takes up more room than all the rest of a person’s insides, and yet ain’t no good, nohow. Tom Sawyer thinks the same.
ATTRIBUTION: Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910), U.S. author. Huck, in Huckleberry Finn, ch. 33 (1884).
