Today is Mark Twain's 176th birthday (wow). I am a huge fan, and in honor of his birthday, I'd like to share a couple of favorite quotes.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that 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.
Let us endeavor so to live that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry.
Never put off till tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.
It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.
Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.
