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

Mark Twain quotes worth repeating....

We ought never to do wrong when people are looking.

Never tell the truth to people who are not worthy of it.

Always obey your parents when they are present.

A full belly is little worth where the mind is starved.

Nothing so needs reforming as other people's habits.

Character is the architect of achievements.

Always respect your superiors, if you have any.

Prosperity is the best protector of principle.

An uneasy conscience is a hair in the mouth.

There is no sadder thing than a young pessimist, except an old optimist.

Architects cannot teach nature anything.

The man with a new idea is a crank until the idea succeeds.

All good things arrive unto them that wait - and don't die in the meantime.

The lack of money is the root of all evil.

Travel is fatal to prejudice.

A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval.

Be good and you will be lonesome. Honor is a harder master than the law.

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

Mark Twain's home, "The Painted Lady" (above)

When in doubt, tell the truth.

Do your duty today and repent tomorrow.

There is nothing in the world like persuasive speech to fuddle the mental apparatus.

If you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything.

Books are the liberated spirits of men.

I was born modest, but it didn't last.

If books are not good company, where will I find it?

May you always keep your youth.

Clothes do not merely make the man...clothes are the man.

To eat is digest, divine.
