Mark Twain

Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.

Laws control the lesser man... Right conduct controls the greater one.

Man - a creature made at the end of the week's work when God was tired.

Man will do many things to get himself loved; he will do all things to get himself envied.

The lack of money is the root of all evil

The secret source of humour itself is not joy but sorrow. There is no humour in heaven

To refuse awards is another way of accepting them with more noise than is normal

To succeed in life you need two things, ignorance and confidence

Truth is mighty and will prevail. There is nothing wrong with this, except that it ain't so.

When you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

When your friends start to compliment you on how young you look, it is a sure sign you’re getting old.

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

There are times when one would like to hang the whole human race, and finish the farce

There are people who can do all fine and heroic things but one—keep from telling their happiness to the unhappy.

Go to heaven for the weather, hell for the company.
