(Many of these are from Puddn'head Wilson's calendar)

The man who does not read good books is at no advantage over the man
that can`t read them.

It is better to deserve honours and not have them than to have them
and not to deserve them.

The radical of one century is the conservative of the next. The
radical invents the views. When he has worn them out, the conservative
adopts them.

Modesty died when clothes were born.

Why shouldn't truth be stranger than fiction? Fiction, after all, has
to make sense.

Be virtuous and you will be eccentric.

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

I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.

When angry count four; when very angry, swear. - Puddn'Head Wilson's Calendar.

Man is the only animal that blushes. Or needs to.

There is a great deal of human nature in people.

When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life
stands explained.

I can live for two months on a good compliment.

-- Samuel Langhorne Clemens (Mark Twain) (1835-1910)
