QUOTES AND IMAGES FROM MARK TWAIN

QUOTATIONS FROM MARK TWAIN

SOME OF THE EDITOR'S FAVORITES

Aim and object of the law and lawyers was to defeat justice

All life seems to be sacred except human life

Always trying to build a house by beginning at the top

Believed it; because she desired to believe it

Best intentions and the frailest resolution

But it is an ill-wind that blows nobody good

But there are liars everywhere this year

Cayote is a living, breathing allegory of Want

Children were clothed in nothing but sunshine

Contempt of Court on the part of a horse

Fertile in invention and elastic in conscience

Fun--but of a mild type

Grief that is too deep to find help in moan or groan or outcry

Haughty humility

I was not scared, but I was considerably agitated

I had a delicacy about going home and getting thrashed

If the man doesn't believe as we do, we say he is a crank

Imagination to help his memory

Invariably allowed a half for shrinkage in his statements

It used to be a good hotel, but that proves nothing

It is easier to stay out than get out

It had cost something to upholster these women

Keg of these nails--of the true cross

Let me take your grief and help you carry it

Life a vanity and a burden, and the future but a way to death

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

Man was not a liar he only missed it by the skin of his teeth

Money is most difficult to get when people need it most

Native canoe is an irresponsible looking contrivance

No people who are quite so vulgar as the over-refined ones

No nation occupies a foot of land that was not stolen

Nothing that glitters is gold

Notion that he is less savage than the other savages

Nursed his woe and exalted it

Ostentatious of his modesty

Otherwise they would have thought I was afraid, which I was

People talk so glibly of "feeling," "expression," "tone,"

Pity is for the living, Envy is for the dead
