The Wisdom of Mark Twain
1835-1910


“When I was young, I could remember anything, whether it had happened or not.”

“There are people who strictly deprive themselves of every eatable, drinkable and smokable, which has in any way acquired a shady reputation. They pay this price for health, and health is all they get for it.”

“Put all thine eggs in one basket—Then watch that basket!”

“To stop from smoking is the easiest thing I ever did. I ought to know, for I’ve done it a thousand times.”

“Always do right; this will gratify some people and astonish the rest.”

“The coldest winter I ever spent in my life was the summer I spent in San Francisco.”

“Get your facts first; then you can distort ‘em as much as you please.”

“Suppose you are a congressman. Now, suppose you are an idiot…but wait! I repeat myself.”
