“Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.”
Mark Twain, (Samuel Clemens – Born November 30, 1835, Died April 21, 1910)

Mark Twain was born in the year of Halley’s Comet.
Mark Twain died in the year of Halley’s Comet.
😀 Hmmm,,, Is that the reason they’re considered, “Omens”, Capt?
But he sure did a number on “Life” in the interim, didn’t he~!~? 😀
Good one, Grouchy!
I can only imagine what the late, great Mr. Twain would have to say about “social justice.”
As for his views on “Social Justice” and the current moocher society, “How in the HELL did you let yourselves sink so low~!~?~?”
As I wrote that, the thought hit me: Have you ever noticed how the great thinkers and writers, as well as social historians, were “Individualists”,,, and that is to include the great politicians of renown, as well~!
Thanks for the comment, CW, and the tendril of thought it brought about~!
“Have you ever noticed how the great thinkers and writers, as well as social historians, were “Individualists”?”
Yes but I always assumed I was biased. 🙂
😀 If you are, then so am I,,, and so be it~!
My brothers and I heard this from our Dad hundreds of times (sounds bad that we NEEDED to hear it that much) when we were young. His shortened version was just: “the world doesn’t owe you a living.” Even though I’m a Mark Twain fan I didn’t even know it came from him. Great one, thanks!
G’Morning, Russ, and glad to see you, I am~!
Our parents and grandparents lived through the Great Depression, and it built a core within them, that is sadly lacking in the generations succeeding the Second World War. And that thought brings up a lot of scenarios for pondering,,, and I fear for the younger generation that didn’t have the parents with that “rod of iron” in them, to pass it on.
It’s good to see you, and have a great day~!
