Samuel Clemens and Winston Churchill were both born on this day. These two amazingly witty & intelligent men were born on the same day about 40 years apart.
I think I read that Mr. Clemens was not fond of Winston for what he called Churchill’s love for war. He said something like, “Mr. Churchill knows all about war but nothing about peace. War may be very entertaining to people who enjoy that sort of thing, I, myself, have never cared for it”.
Are wit and a way with words common to people born under this birth sign?
