"Sometimes my feelings are so hot that I have to take to the pen and pour them out on paper to keep them from setting me afire inside; then all that ink and labor are wasted, because I can't print the result. I have just finished an article of this kind, and it satisfies me entirely. It does my weather-beaten soul good to read it, and admire the trouble it would make for me and the family. I will leave it behind, and utter it from the grave. There is free speech there, and no harm to the family." - "The Privilege of the Grave," published in Who is Mark Twain?

In America - as elsewhere- free speech is confined to the dead." - Mark Twain, Notebook, 1904
