Quotes || What spirits wouldn’t say

A scow or raft went by so close we could hear them talking and cussing and laughing – heard the plain; but we couldn’t see no sign of them; it made you feel crawly, it was like spirits carrying on that way in the air. Jim said he believed it was spirits; but I says:

“No, spirits wouldn’t say, ‘dern the dern fog.'”

– Mark Twain, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
