one mississippi, two mississippi…

Being born in one Mississippi River town and being raised in another Mississippi River town, I have in my blood, a special affection for the great moustached Samuel Clemons.  Known and loved by many.  I even took an English class in college wholly devoted to this guy’s literature.  To be fair, I didn’t read 100% of any of those books, but I digress…  I ran across some quotes from this wisdomy literary that I quite liked and happened to be about one of my favorite topics – food, and happened to line up fairly well with my thoughts on the topic; so I thought I’d share:

“Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.”

“But when the time comes that a man has had his dinner, then the true man comes to the surface.”

“There are people who strictly deprive themselves of each and every eatable, drinkable, and smokable which has in any way acquired a shady reputation. They pay this price for health. And health is all they get for it. How strange it is. It is like paying out your whole fortune for a cow that has gone dry.”

Now, go and have a corndog and read some Mark Twain.
