“We attended the school with more or less regularity once or twice a week, in summer, walking to it in the cool of the mornings by the forest paths, and back in the gloaming at the end of the day. All the pupils brought their dinners in baskets—corn dodger, buttermilk and other good things—and sat in the shade of the trees at noon and ate them. It is the part of my education which I look back upon with the most satisfaction.”

Autobiography of Mark Twain, edited by Harriet Elinor Smith, vol 1 (Berkeley: University of California Press, 2010), 216.
