Mark Twain discusses Satan

Of course, Satan has some kind of a case, it goes without saying. It may be a poor one, but that is nothing; that can be said about anyone of us. We may not pay him reverence for that would be indiscreet; but we can at least respect his talents.

A person who has for untold centuries maintained the imposing position of spiritual head of four fifths of the human race, and political head of the whole of it, must be granted the possession of executive abilities of the loftiest order.

I would like to see him. I would rather see him and shake him by the tail than any other member of the European Concert.
