Reading his biographical account (https://encyclopedia2.thefreedictionary.com/Mark+Twain), I get to know that the humorist Mark Twain turned into a pessimistic figure after the deaths of his wife and his daughters in the later part of his life. It looks obvious that he had a bitter experience in life probably from someone who he trusted because he had been kind to that person but the person did not show up to Twain's expectations.

What I think of the statement is simple : there are no absolutes in life. We see life with a tinted glass formed by our own feelings and perceptions of the world. So, we can choose to see life like Twain or get in the other person's shoe and try to do a little better than that.
Topic: sacrilegious

The word sacrilegious has its roots in the same word as sacred - sacrum "sacred object".
So, it is easy to figure that it has something to do with sacred objects. Here it means disregarding sacred or revered signs and symbols or showing strong disrespect to them.

From Latin sacer + legō (“steal something sacred”)
