Favorite Speeches Mark Twain Quotes

1. "And with light lips yet full of their swift smile,And hands that wist not though they dug a grave,Undid the hasps of gold, and drank, and gave,And he drank after, a deep glad kingly draught:And all their life changed in them, for they quaffedDeath; if it be death so to drink, and fareAs men who change and are what these twain were.And shuddering with eyes full of fear and fireAnd heart-stung with a serpentine desireHe turned and saw the terror in her eyesThat yearned upon him shining in such wiseAs a star midway in the midnight fixed. Their Galahault was the cup, and she that mixed;Nor other hand there needed, nor sweet speechTo lure their lips together; each on eachHung with strange eyes and hovered as a birdWounded, and each mouth trembled for a world;Their heads neared, and their hands were drawn in one,And they saw dark, though still the unsunken sunFar through fine rain shot fire into the south;And their four lips became one burning mouth."
Author: Algernon Charles Swinburne

Author: Chang Rae Lee
6. "Miss Ingram was a mark beneath jealousy: she was too inferior to excite feeling. Pardon the seeming paradox; I mean what I say. She was very showy, but she was not genuine; she had a fine person, many brilliant attainments, but her mind was poor, her heart barren by nature; nothing bloomed spontaneously on that soil; no unforced natural fruit delighted by its freshness. She was not good; she was not original; she used to repeat sounding phrases from books; she never offered, nor had, an opinion of her own. She advocated a high tone of sentiment, but she did not know the sensations of sympathy and pity; tenderness and truth were not in her"
Author: Charlotte Brontë

10. "The Kiss: Intimate with YouMy taste, my palettes, and honey suckles are sweet.You give me creative illusions.It's the realism of you.Sometimes rough. Yet, you evade my every smoothest thought.From head to toe, I see you in black and white. Your curves, your lines, oh you give me great endeavors. You peek my interest. My volume rises and nudity springs within the two sexes, and oh what the eye perceives. The contour, the edge, and flowing rhythmic lines, and look at that pretty smooth silky skin. We live rendering our thoughts of each other.I prefer the legs down, the ring of bone, and the tip of your foot down in perspective. You are ideal to me.I press in with my smoothing stick, oh what imagination.Landmarks! Mark that spot.The kiss of figure drawing.I love you, HB, 4B, and 6B"
Author: Edna Stewart

You'll meet guys better than you, stronger than you, faster than you, and then you're up against better teams. The world changes when you leave Groveton."
