"After all these years, I see that I was mistaken
about Eve in the beginning; it is better to live outside
the Garden with her than inside it without her."
Adams Diary, Mark Twain

Adam was the author of sin, and I wish he had
taken out an international copyright on it.
Notebook, Mark Twain
Adam was a man who comes down to us without a
stain upon his name, unless it was a stain to take
one apple when most of us would have taken
the whole crop.
"On Adam", from a speech by Mark Twain
No woman or man really knows what perfect love
is until they have been married for a quarter of a century.
Notebook, Mark Twain
And finally the old master writer and wit
wrote in a letter:
Marriage...yes, it is the supreme felicity of life.
I concede it. And it is also the supreme tragedy of life.
The deeper the love, the surer the tragedy.
Mark Twain
