I am a big fan of quotes that make a lot of sense. I use the philosophy in my everyday life. Some of the quotes I compiled were from Henry Ford (read it here) and from Oscar Wilde (read it here). Today I am sharing my favorite quotes from another very influential person.
He is...Samuel Clemens.
More commonly known by his pen name.
Here are some of his quotes that I like (in no particular order):
- Go to Heaven for the climate, Hell for the company.
- Martyrdom covers a multitude of sins.
- Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.
- The man who does not read books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them.
- Laws control the lesser man. Right conduct controls the greater one.
- It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.
- The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
- The lack of money is the root of all evil.
- To succeed in life, you need two things: ignorance and confidence.
|Yes, he is influential.|
