"You see my kind of loyalty was loyalty to one's country, not to its institutions or its office-holders. The country is the real thing, the substantial thing, the eternal thing; it is the thing to watch over, and care for, and be loyal to; institutions are extraneous." ~ A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain You see, he was going for the Holy Grail. The boys all took a flier at the Holy Grail now and then. It was a several years' cruise. They always put in the long absence snooping around, in the most conscientious way, though none of them had any idea where the Holy Grail really was, and I don't think any of them actually expected to find it, or would have known what to do with it if he had run across it. ~ A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain A man must not hold himself aloof from the things which his friends and his community have at heart if he would be liked. ~ A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain Inherited ideas are a curious thing, and interesting to observe and examine. ~ A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain To be vested with enormous authority is a fine thing; but to have the on-looking world consent to it is a finer. ~ A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain This old stone tower was very massive--and rather ruinous, too, for it was Roman, and four hundred years old.

If you notice, most folks don't go to church only when they've got to; but a hog is different. ~ The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
