Huck's Pragmatism

HUCKFN-QJ2KBE

Which quote from the book best represents Huck's pragmatic viewpoint on life?

A

B

After supper she got out her book and learned me about Moses and the bulrushers, and I was in a sweat to find out all about him; but by and by she let it out that Moses has been dead a considerable long time; so then I didn't care no more about him; because I don't take no stock in dead people.

C

The stars was shining, and the leaves rustled in the woods ever so mournful; and I heard an owl, way off, who-whooing about somebody that was dead, and a whipplewill and a dog crying about somebody that was going to die; and the wind was trying to whisper something to me and I couldn't make out what it was, and so it made the cold shivers run over me.

D

E
