Happy birthday Mark Twain

One of the book that had the strongest impact on me as a child was definitely The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. I remember precisely the first feelings of words creating an emotion that resonated in me. Excitement. I felt understood by Tom, this troublemaker, endless dreamer and pure romantic. My awakening to breaking the rules and taking risks probably first emerge there. Later on, Mark Twain kept accompanying me in my fulfillment quest, always with some humour, cleverness and sensitivity .

Happy Birthday dear Mark Twain, and Merci for helping me never give up. Today, I toast you.

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear- not the absence of fear

Mark Twain
