The Great Aim of Education is not Knowledge but Action - Herbert Spencer
It is a true inspiration to see the history behind some of the best writers born throughout time. Mark Twain, who started out as an apprentice's apprentice, was both a brilliant man, and a man of intelligent words. Author of "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" and its sequel "The Adventures of Huckleberry Fin", and many other classics. "I am not American, I am the American"-Mark Twain.
Samuel Clemens who had worked as a printing apprentice's apprentice at the age of 14, who took on writing with such keen interest, that he would publish pieces of his own writings in the paper. A man who went through hardships and pain, a man that kept on going, pursuing his dreams, and working hard to get what he he wanted.
Writing is history of the past, and the making. An exploration of words, pit forth to give thought on anything and everything that life brings to us.
I think that this video was really good and informative learned some things that I didn’t know before watching this. I would love to watch the rest of this.
Before this movie I knew a little about Mark Twain, but this movie showed me a more understanding of him,his thoughts and belifes.He thought "That god created man because he was disapointed with the monkeys" and " That art could be created out of the amarican language." he seemed like a very smart man this movie is good so far i like it.
Something that I didnt know about Mark Twain was the fact that he was a phenomenal writer. What he thought was, art can be created from the american language, and something that believed was that God created man because he was disappointed in the monkey.
So far this movie has been really interesting. I didn’t really know anything about Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain) all I knew was that he wrote books. Other than that I knew little to no information about him.
I think it’s cool that when he was young he had a dream that when he grew up he wanted to be a Pilot on a steam boat. I think its cool, that’s all he wanted to be was a pilot on a boat. And he was, and much more.
Before I saw this movie, the only thins I knew about Mark Twain were: His real name was Samuel Clements, and that he wrote The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Just form what I have seen in this movie, I learned that he had a few brothers and sisters, 2 of them died at a young age from diseases, he worked as a printer's apprentice, Haley's comet passed over when he was born, and he left home when he was 17, as well as a few other things.
