Five Quotes from Mark Twain


Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910)

"Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured."

"Apparently there is nothing that cannot happen today."

"Be careless in your dress if you will, but keep a tidy soul"

"Don't let schooling interfere with your education."

"It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare."

I've always liked the 'War Prayer' I imagine is showed great moral courage to write it in the US.

As I read the first quote, I could hear our neighbour having a tantrum downstairs...
