Pahina 3 - Well-a-well, man that is born of woman is of few days and full of trouble, as the Scripture says, and I reckon it's so.
Pahina 19 - Fisher for a kite, in good repair; and when he played out, Johnny Miller bought in for a dead rat and a string to swing it with — and so on, and so on, hour after hour. And when the middle of the afternoon came, from being a poor poverty-stricken boy in the morning, Tom was literally rolling in wealth. He had besides the things before mentioned, twelve marbles, part of a jews-harp, a piece of blue bottleglass to look through, a spool cannon, a key that wouldn't unlock anything, a fragment of chalk,...
Pahina 196 - You'd scarce expect one of my age, To speak in public on the stage ; And if I chance to fall below Demosthenes or Cicero, Don't view me with a critic's eye, But pass my imperfections by. Large streams from little fountains flow; Tall oaks from little acorns grow...
Pahina 20 - He had had a nice, good, idle time all the while — plenty of company — and the fence had three coats of whitewash on it! If he hadn't run out of whitewash he would have bankrupted every boy in the village.
Pahina 203 - He promised to abstain from smoking, chewing, and profanity as long as he remained a member. Now he found out a new thing — namely, that to promise not to do a thing is the surest way in the world to make a body want to go and do that very thing.
Pahina 19 - ... if it was the back fence I wouldn't mind and she wouldn't. Yes, she's awful particular about this fence; it's got to be done very careful; I reckon there ain't one boy in a thousand, maybe. two thousand, that can do it the way it's got to be done." TOM GAVE UP THE BRUSH "No — is that so? Oh come, now — lemme just try. Only just a little — I'd let you, if you was me, Tom.
Pahina 6 - She'd never noticed if it hadn't been for Sid. Confound it! sometimes she sews it with white, and sometimes she sews it with black. I wish to geeminy she'd stick to one or t'other — 7 can't keep the run of 'em.
Pahina 18 - Well, maybe it is, and maybe it ain't. All I know is, it suits Tom Sawyer.' 'Oh, come now, you don't mean to let on that you like it?' The brush continued to move. 'Like it? Well, I don't see why I oughtn't to like it. Does a boy get a chance to whitewash a fence every day?
Pahina 3 - My! Look behind you, aunt!" The old lady whirled round, and snatched her skirts out of danger. The lad fled, on the instant, scrambled up the high board fence, and disappeared over it. His aunt Polly stood surprised a moment, and then broke into a gentle laugh. "Hang the boy, can't I never learn anything? Ain't he played me tricks enough like that for me to be looking out for him by this time? But old fools is the biggest fools there is.
Pahina 13 - Saturday morning was come, and all the summer world was bright and fresh, and brimming with life. There was a song in every heart; and if the heart was young the music issued at the lips. There was cheer in every face and a spring in every step. The locust trees were in bloom and the fragrance of the blossoms filled the air.
