NUMBER:7805
AUTHOR:Mark (Samuel Langhorne Clemens) Twain (1835–1910)
QUOTATION:  There is a sumptuous variety about the New England weather that compels the stranger’s admiration—and regret. The weather is always doing something there; always attending strictly to business; always getting up new designs and trying them on people to see how they will go. But it gets through more business in Spring than in any other season. In the Spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six different kinds of weather inside of twenty-four hours.
ATTRIBUTION:New England Weather (Speech at dinner of New England Society. New York, Dec. 22, 1876.)
