Mark Twain, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

All right, then, I’ll go to hell.

On 12/12/12 at 12:12:12 pm, for your pleasure, here’s the moment when Huck Finn finally admits to himself that he cares more for Jim than what all the “good” people around him tell him is right. Even though he’s been told it’ll send him to hell,┬áHuck listens to the law of his heart instead of the law of the land. If there’s a better sentiment than that to send us into the future, I don’t know what it is.
