I went a little quote crazy this week, inspired by a recent visit to the Mark Twain House and Museum in Hartford, CT. Hope you enjoy!
1. “Courage is resistance to fear, master of fear – not absence of fear.”
2. “Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”
3. “Better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it an remove all doubt.”
4. “Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of Congress; but I repeat myself. “
5. “Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”
6. “Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”
7. “Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.”
8. “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.”
9. “I have never let schooling interfere with my education.”
10. “If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.”
