It is a free press...There are laws to protect the freedom of the press's speech,
but none that are worth anything to protect the people from the press.
- License of the Press speech
...the liberty of the Press is called the Palladium of Freedom, which means, in these days, the liberty of being deceived, swindled, and humbugged by the Press and paying hugely for the deception.
- "From Author's Sketch Book, Nov. 1870," reprinted in The Twainian, May 1940
