Mark Twain Humor

As an example to others, and not that I care for moderation myself, it has always been my rule never to smoke when asleep, and never to refrain from smoking when awake.

Reader, suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man.

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

Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.

Nothing so needs reforming as other people’s habits.

Sometimes too much to drink is barely enough.

Truth is the most valuable thing we have. Let us economize it.

By trying we can easily endure adversity. Another man’s, I mean.

Never put off till tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.

I am interested in America. The land, the people. There is a MAJOR disconnect between the American nation and the so-called "elite."
