What are the TOP 10 life quotes by Mark Twain?


Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.


When we remember that we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained.


Let us so live that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry.


What a wee little part of a person's life are his acts and his words! His real life is led in his head, and is known to none but himself. All day long, the mill of his brain is grinding, and his thoughts, not those of other things, are his history. These are his life, and they are not written. Everyday would make a whole book of 80,000 words -- 365 books a year. Biographies are but the clothes and buttons of the man -- the biography of the man himself cannot be written.




The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.


Life does not consist mainly, or even largely, of facts and happenings. It consists mainly of the storm of thought that is forever flowing through one's head.


To succeed in life, you need two things: ignorance and confidence.


Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.


Plain question and plain answer make the shortest road out of most perplexities.


A myriad of men are born; they labor and sweat and struggle; ...they squabble and scold and fight; they scramble for little mean advantages over each other; age creeps upon them; infirmities follow; ...those they love are taken from them, and the joy of life is turned to aching grief. It comes at last--the only unpoisoned gift earth ever had for them--and they vanish from a world where they were of no consequence, ...a world which will lament them a day and forget them forever.
