My new favorite quote


“Life does not consist mainly, or even largely, of facts and happenings. It consists mainly of the storm of thoughts that is forever blowing through one’s head.”

~ Mark Twain

So poetic, and, for me, at least, so true.

  1. Twain had it right. What we believe to be true, is always filtered through our own memories, feelings, and observations. Everyone has a story to tell, and no two people are consistently allied to the truth. This is what makes History a fascinating subject.
    Mark Twain was walking a fine line of commentary, at a time when the issues had been slavery and war. He certainly had a lot “blowing through one’s [his] head.”

    This is a great quote…and, true for me too!


  2. Thanks as always for your thoughtful comment, William. I would imagine that most poets would agree with the sentiment (though I feel rather pretentious calling myself a poet :)).
