Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.
I don't remember one thing about the day I was born. It hasn't been for lack of trying either. I've set for hours trying to go back as far as I could, but the earliest thing I remember is riding in the back of Floyd's wagon and looking at myself in a looking glass.
I've run across folks claim they know everything about their birthday--where it happened, who they was with, what day it was. But if you really press them on it, turns out they don't remember no more about it than I do. They only know what somebody told them.
I don't care who you are--when it comes to knowing where you come from, you got to take somebody else's word for it. That's where things has always got ticklish for me. I only know one man who might be able to tell me where I come from, and that man is a liar and a fraud.
