     Kodanikunimega Samuel Langhorne Clemens. Ameerika kirjanik.

 

Kuuldused minu surmast on tugevasti liialdatud. (1987)

 

Põhimõttel on kaalu alles siis, kui kõht on täis söödud.

 

Kaastunne on elavatele, kadedus surnuile.

 

Kortsud peaksid lihtsalt näitama kohti, kus olid naeratused.

 

On olemas kolme tüüpi valesid: valed, alatud valed ning statistika.

 

Mu elus on olnud palju raskusi. Enamikke neist pole aset leidnud.        

 

Ära lükka homsele neid tegevusi, mida saaks lükata ülehomsele.

 

Julgus on vastupanu hirmule, hirmust jagusaamine, mitte hirmu puudumine.

 

Ettevaatust tervisealase kirjanduse lugemisel. Te võite surra kirjavigadesse.

 

Mu emal oli minuga parasjagu raske aga ma arvan, et ta nautis seda.

 

Selles elus vajad sa rumalust ja järjekindlust - siis on edu tagatud.

 

Kui päike paistab, laenab Pank sulle vihmavarju; ja kui sadama hakkab, küsib selle tagasi.

 

Mure hoolitseb ise enese eest, aga ammutamaks rõõmu kogu täiust, peab sul olema keegi, kellega seda jagada.

 

Sõbra tõeline ülesanne on olla sinu kõrval, kui sind on tabanud ebaõnn. Kui sul veab, seltsib sinuga igaüks.

 

Edevusel ei ole astmeid, üksnes selle varjamises on inimesed erineva võimekusega.

 

Suitsetamisest loobumine on imelihtne. Tean, sest olen seda tuhandeid kordi teinud.

 

Parim viis enda lõbustamiseks on lõbustada kedagi teist.

 

Vältige neid, kes püüavad teis kõigutada usku saavutada elus midagi silmapaistvat.

 

Kui vale rändab juba pool teed ümber maailma, paneb tõde alles kingi jalga.

 

Klassika on kirjandus, mida igaüks tahab olla lugenud, aga keegi ei taha lugeda.

 

 

Inimkonnal on ainult üks tõeliselt mõjuv relv — see on naer. Naerurünnakule ei suuda miski vastu seista.
