Mark Twain Superstar

If you're a fan of Mark Twain (and you should be if you are not), then check out the cool article Time has on one of the most influential American authors. Here are some quotes of his that I particularly like.

"All generalizations are false, including this one."

"All you need is ignorance and confidence and the success is sure."

"But who prays for Satan? Who, in eighteen centuries, has had the common humanity to pray for the one sinner that needed it most?"

"'Classic.' A book which people praise and don't read."

"Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities. Truth isn't."

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

"I have been complimented many times and they always embarrass me; I always feel that they have not said enough."

"Often it does seem a pity that Noah and his party did not miss the boat."
