Mark Twain

* A banker is a fellow who lends you his umbrella when the sun is shining, but wants it back the minute it begins to rain.

* A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval.

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

* Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.

* An Englishman is a person who does things because they have been done before. An American is a person who does things because they haven't been done before.

* Barring that natural expression of villainy which we all have, the man looked honest enough.

* Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint.

* By trying we can easily learn to endure adversity -- another man's I mean.

* Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society.

* Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear.

* Do something every day that you don't want to do; this is the golden rule for acquiring the habit of doing your duty without pain.

* Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.

* Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.

* Education: that which reveals to the wise, and conceals from the stupid, the vast limits of their knowledge.

* Facts are stubborn things, but statistics are more pliable.

* Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities. Truth isn't.

* Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please.

* Grief can take care of itself, but to get the full value of a joy you must have somebody to divide it with.
