You don’t know about me, without you have read a book by the name of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer; but that ain’t no matter. That book was made by Mr. Mark Twain, and he told the truth, mainly. There was things which he stretched, but mainly he told the truth.
– Mark Twain
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Chapter 1. Opening lines of the book in which Huck introduces himself. Mark Twain mainly told the truth in the Tom Sawyer book, Huck says, but everyone tells some lies, it is just the nature of our society.
