Quotable Sunday - #1

Toni at A Daily Dose of Toni hosts Quotable Sunday each Sunday. Although a lot of people are doing Memorial Day quotes today, I would like to share some quotes by Mark Twain.

Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint.

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

I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the difference between a dog and a man.

It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt. (This is one of my all-time favorites.)

When in doubt, tell the truth.

Of all the animals, man is the only one that is cruel. He is the only one that inflicts pain for the pleasure of doing it.
