Mark Twain
                            
Foreigners cannot enjoy our food, I suppose, any more than we can enjoy theirs. It is not strange; for tastes are made, not born.
 I might glorify my bill of fare until I was tired; but after all, the Scotchman would shake his head, and say, "Where's your haggis?" and the Fijian would sigh and say, "Where's your missionary?"
   
From “A Tramp Abroad.” First Published 1880
  .
Mark Twain (1835-1910).
                
Mark Twain was born Samuel Langhorne Clemens in Missouri, USA. He was one of the most well-known journalists, authors and political satirists of his day, with many of his works still considered classics, and many are just as popular today as they were when he wrote them.
