Tom Sawyer Quotes
  • Aunt Polly talks about Tom: "Spare the rod and spile the child, as the good book says. I'm a-laying up sin and suffering for us both, I know. He's full of the old scratch, but laws-a-me! He's my own dead sister's boy, poor thing, and I ain't got the heart to lash him somehow. Every time I let him off my conscience does hurt me so; and every time I hit him my old heart most breaks."
    - Mark Twain, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

            - Mark Twain, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

 
  • About Tom and Joe Harper: "They said they would rather be outlaws a year in Sherwood Forest than President of the United States forever."

And the women's always beautiful, too." - Mark Twain, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
