Quotations by Mark Twain

“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.”

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

“I have been through some terrible things in my life, some of which actually happened.”

“When people do not respect us we are sharply offended; yet in his private heart no man much respects himself”

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.”

“When angry, count to four. When very angry, swear.”

“Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living; the world owes you nothing; it was here first”

“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear – not absence of fear”
