Quotes from my Mark Twain Journal

I recently purchased a journal called The Sayings of Mark Twain. You can bet your hard earned dollar that I love it. Here are some of the reasons why:

I was born modest; not all over, but in spots.

You cain't pray a lie.

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

Familiarity breeds contempt-and children.

To believe yourself brave is to be brave.

Go to Heaven for the climate, Hell for the company.

The most interesting information comes from children, for they tell all they know and then stop.

You ought never "sass" old people-unless they "sass" you first.

(and last, but definitely not least...)

What would men be without women? Scarce, sir, mighty scarce.
