Great thoughts...Great minds



Mark Twain said so….

Your trust in rationality makes you irrational.

The best way to cheer yourself is to cheer somebody else.

Let us be thankful for fools. But for them rest of us could not succeed.

Go to heaven for the climate, hell for the company.

All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence, and then success is sure.

I must have a prodigious quantity of mind; it takes me as much as a week sometimes to make it up.

A classic is something that everybody wants to have read and nobody wants to read.

The less a man knows the bigger noise he makes and the higher the salary he commands.

A banker is a fellow who lends you his umbrella when the sun is shining, but wants it back the minute it begins to rain.

**********************************************************************

Samuel Johnson said so…

Few things are impossible to diligence and skill….great things are performed not by strength, but perseverance.

Man’s chief merit consists in resisting the impulses of his nature.

When making your choice in life, do not neglect to live.

The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good

  1. Nice quotes. Kudos on your picture. That's actually my Dad. He runs a show called Mark Twain Himself in Hannibal, MO.
