from American Examiner magazine published shortly after Clemens'
death in 1910 captioned
| Different results of the one Master Impulse:
the necessity of securing one's self-approval. They wear diverse clothes
and are subject to diverse moods, but in whatsoever ways they masquerade
they are the same person all the time. To change the figure, the compulsion
that moves a man--and there is but the one--is the necessity of securing
the contentment of his own spirit. When it stops, the man is dead.
- What Is Man?
Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.
...there is a good side and a bad side to most people, and in accordance
with your own character and disposition you will bring out one of them
and the other will remain a sealed book to you.
