Go to heaven for the climate, hell for the company

“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.”

 

“Keep away from those who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you believe that you too can become great.”

 

“It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.”

 

“Patriot: the person who can holler the loudest without knowing what he is hollering about.”

 

“There are basically two types of people. People who accomplish things, and people who claim to have accomplished things. The first group is less crowded.”

 

“To succeed in life, you need two things: ignorance and confidence.”

 

“Buy land, they’re not making it anymore”

 

“In Paris they simply stared when I spoke to them in French; I never did succeed in making those idiots understand their own language”

A very happy birthday to my favorite American author.  Thank you for your wit, humor, sarcasm, and insight into the American psyche, the south, and timeless truths about our beloved America.  Happy Birthday Samuel Clemens, aka Mark Twain.  May your works continue to lead  you down the Mississippi of life, my river boat captain.
