Quotation of the Day for May 3, 2011

"He went farther than Heine, who said that he forgave his enemies, but not till they were dead. Clemens did not forgive his dead enemies; their death seemed to deepen their crimes, like a base evasion, or a cowardly attempt to escape; he pursued them to the grave; he would like to dig them up and take vengeance upon their clay."

- William Dean Howells, in My Mark Twain, on how Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens) held grudges.
