“A bird in hand is a certainty. But a bird in the bush may sing.”
the most optimistic thing i could find from the likes of a man who is most famous for “The Outcasts of Poker Flat.” he wrote a play with Mark Twain, didn’t know that! it was called “Ah, Sin” and was very unsuccessful.
“How santa Claus Came to Simpson’s Bar” will always make me cry. read things by this man – he is underrated and sometimes criticized as cliche, but he wrote those characters BEFORE they were cliches. his short stories are phenomenal and heart-wrenching.
