“I know the look of an apple that is roasting and sizzling on the hearth on a winter's evening, and I know the comfort that comes of eating it hot, along with some sugar and a drench of cream... I know how the nuts taken in conjunction with winter apples, cider, and doughnuts, make old people's tales and old jokes sound fresh and crisp and enchanting.”
― Mark Twain
Twain knew how to get all the senses involved. See how he did it here in just a few delicious sentences?
mark twain was a master story teller and a master of visual imagery and metaphor.he understood how to immerse a person completely into the story he was telling.
Kenna - Have you ever thought of putting some of your quotes of the day into a hub? You always have such great ones! Maybe if you have some that would fit into a single category you could explain why you started with your quote of the day series (never seeming to miss a day - amazing!) and add a little about what made you choose each quote in terms of what they mean to you. Just a thought but you have collected such a large number of great quotes it seems like an opportunity. Have a great holiday and New Year!
