Top 10 Mark Twain quotes

1. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do
than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Mark Twain

Mark Twain

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

but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.
Mark Twain

Mark Twain

6. We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it and stop

hot stove-lid again - and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.
Mark Twain

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

Mark Twain

9. If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous he will not bite you. This is the

and remove all doubt.
Mark Twain
