The Satirical and Bitter Side of Mark Twain "Man is made of dirt - I saw him made. I am not made of dirt. Man is a museum of diseases, a home of impurities; he comes to-day and is gone tomorrow; he begins as dirt and departs as stench; I am of the aristocracy of the Imperishables. And man has the Moral Sense. You understand? He has the Moral Sense. That would seem to be difference enough between us, all by itself." - Mark Twain, The Mysterious Stranger The Mysterious Stranger and Other Stories is a collection of nine short stories meant to divulge the human's wicked nature. The Mysterious Stranger is more of a novella in which Satan observes - yet doesn't intervene - the human kind. He speaks of our precarious morality and fear and also about our innate compulsion of following the boldest and at the same time the most impulsive individual, thus acting more like sheep than wolves.
