Tom Sawyer

By Mark Twain

QUOTATION: There comes a time in every rightly constructed boy’s life when he has a raging desire to go somewhere and dig for hidden treasure.
ATTRIBUTION: Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910), U.S. author. Tom Sawyer, ch. 26 (1876).

QUOTATION: Often, the less there is to justify a traditional custom, the harder it is to get rid of it.
ATTRIBUTION: Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910), U.S. author. Tom Sawyer, ch. 5 (1876).

QUOTATION: Tom was a glittering hero once more—the pet of the old, the envy of the young. His name even went into immortal print, for the village paper magnified him. There were some that believed he would be President, yet, if he escaped hanging.
ATTRIBUTION: Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910), U.S. author. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, ch. 24 (1876).

QUOTATION: What a hero Tom was become now! He did not go skipping and prancing, but moved with a dignified swagger as became a pirate who felt that the public eye was on him.
ATTRIBUTION: Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910), U.S. author. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, ch. 18 (1876).

QUOTATION: Huck waited for no particulars. He sprang away and sped down the hill as fast as his legs could carry him.
ATTRIBUTION: Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910), U.S. author. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, ch. 29 (1876).

QUOTATION: I have found out that there ain’t no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them.
ATTRIBUTION: Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910), U.S. author. Tom Sawyer Abroad, ch. 11 (1894).
