CAIRO – 1 November 2017: “It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.”

Samuel Langhorne Clemens, or Mark Twain as we know him, was a celebrated American writer and humorist who had and still has a great effect on the minds of his readers, from simple children to sophisticated thinkers. Twain is most famous for his novels “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” (1876) and “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” (1885).

In a “David vs. Goliath” kind of affirmative way, Twain tries to convince people that at the end of the day that your motivation and passion to achieve something matter way more than what you think you are capable of. It is not really about the strength of your body, but the strength of your will.

Fun facts:
● Hannibal, Missouri, USA, which was the setting for his two famous novels, is actually where he was born on November 30, 1835.

● Before becoming a journalist, Twain tried his luck as a gold miner and a printer, and he even became a riverboat pilot, according to Good Reads.

Another one for the road:
“Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn't.”
