a few from Mark Twain
« on: July 11, 2006, 03:29:53 PM »

A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.

A man is never more truthful than when he acknowledges himself a liar.

A man who carries a cat by the tail learns something he can learn in no other way.

All generalizations are false, including this one.

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

Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.

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

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.

Familiarity breeds contempt - and children.

Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heal that has crushed it.

Let us live so that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry.

Craig, thanks for getting this ball rolling!

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

Hi all----------

my dad quoted this one so much I thought he wrote it-------

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