    "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. 

So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

 -Mark Twain (1835-1910)

However, that wasn’t a handicap to their relationship.  Captain Isaiah Sellers was probably one of Twain’s inspirations about Arkansas and the man who gave Samuel Clements 
the name of Mark Twain.
