WHAT WOULD MARK TWAIN TELL US TODAY?

I love reading quotes by Mark Twain. His wit and humor are relevant today, many years since his death in 1910.  Mankind doesn’t seem to change or learn lessons from history. Here are some of my favorite Mark Twain quotes:

  • It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are fool than to open it and remove all doubt.

  • If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.

  • Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

  • Politicians and diapers must be changed often, and for the same reason.

  • The more I learn about people, the more I like my dog.

  • There are lies, there are damn lies, and then there are statistics.

  • Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.

  • Age is an issue of mind over matter, if you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.

  • Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear – not absence of fear.

  • Worrying is like paying a debt you don’t owe.

  • The two most important days in your life are the day you are born, and the day you find out why.

  • Don’t tell fish stories where the people know you: but particularly, don’t tell them where they know the fish.
