The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

    Анастасия Бузуноваhas quotedlast year
    he seated himself on its outer edge and contemplated the dreary vastness of the stream, wishing, the while, that he could only be drowned, all at once and unconsciously, without undergoing the uncomfortable routine devised by nature

    There was a song in every heart; and if the heart was young the music issued at the lips.
    Анастасия Бузуноваhas quotedlast year
    Like many other simple–hearted souls, it was her pet vanity to believe she was endowed with a talent for dark and mysterious diplomacy, and she loved to contemplate her most transparent devices as marvels of low cunning.

    RDAY morning was come, and all the summer world was bright and fresh, and brimming with life. There was a song in every heart; and if the heart was young the music issued at the lips. There was cheer in every face and a spring in every step. The locust–trees were in bloom and the fragrance of the blossoms filled the air. Cardiff Hill, beyond the village and above it, was green with vege

    The odd superstitions touched upon were all prevalent among children and slaves in the West at the period of this story—that is to say, thirty or forty years ago

    Tom drew a line in the dust with his big toe, and said:

    "I dare you to step over that, and I'll lick you till you can't stand up.

    "Well, where you see one of them blue lights flickering around, Tom, you can bet there's a ghost mighty close behind it. It stands to reason. Becuz you know that they don't anybody but ghosts use 'em."

    "Well, if they like it, Tom, all right; but I don't want to be a king and have only just a given name, like a nigger.
    Анастасия Бузуноваhas quoted7 months ago
    "Richard? What's his other name?"

    "He didn't have any other name. Kings don't have any but a given name."
    Анастасия Бузуноваhas quoted7 months ago
    "Well, I don' know no kings, Tom."

    "I reckon you don't. But if you was to go to Europe you'd see a raft of 'em hopping around."

    "Where'll we dig?" said Huck.

    "Oh, most anywhere."

    "Why, is it hid all around?"
    Анастасия Бузуноваhas quoted7 months ago
    THERE comes a time in every rightly–constructed boy's life when he has a raging desire to go somewhere and dig for hidden treasure.

    One of those omniscient and awe–inspiring marvels, a detective, came up from St. Louis, moused around, shook his head, looked wise, and made that sort of astounding success which members of that craft usually achieve. That is to say, he "found a clew." But you can't hang a "clew" for murder
    Анастасия Бузуноваhas quoted7 months ago
    There were some that believed he would be President, yet, if he escaped hanging.

    And that night there came on a terrific storm, with driving rain, awful claps of thunder and blinding sheets of lightning. He covered his head with the bedclothes and waited in a horror of suspense for his doom; for he had not the shadow of a doubt that all this hubbub was about him. He believed he had taxed the forbearance of the powers above to the extremity of endurance and that this was the result.

    Every boy he encountered added another ton to his depression; and when, in desperation, he flew for refuge at last to the bosom of Huckleberry Finn and was received with a Scriptural quotation, his heart broke and he crept home and to bed realizing that he alone of all the town was lost, forever and forever.
