Mark Twain


“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones that you did do.  So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor.  Catch the trade winds in your sail.”

“Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living; the world owes you nothing, it was here first.”

“There are basically two types of people. People who accomplish things, and people who claim to have accomplished things. The first group is less crowded.”

“The human race has only one really effective weapon and that is laughter.”

“Always acknowledge a fault. This will throw those in authority off their guard and give you an opportunity to commit more.”

“Be careful about reading health books, you may die of a misprint.”

“I am opposed to millionaires, but it would be dangerous to offer me the position.”

“I don’t give a damn for a man that can spell a word one way.”

“I have been through some terrible things in my life, some of which actually happened.”

Mark Twain

“There warn’t no home like a raft after all.  Other places do seem so cramped up and smothery, but a raft don’t.  You feel mighty free and easy and comfortable on a raft.”
