I like Mark Twain a lot

I don't have all his books. But I've got 58 of 'em. I'm working on getting the rest of 'em, including those that haven't been released in the US.

"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”


"Never give in–never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”

A few more from Sir Winston. The man could turn a phrase.

"...But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new dark age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science. Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves, that if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, This was their finest hour."

"Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few."

“Never let a good crisis go to waste”

"I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals."

"I have taken more out of alcohol than alcohol has taken out of me."

RE: Favorite Quotes
Here's a few from my favorite of our founding fathers, Benjamin Franklin.

"By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail."

"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

"Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain - and most fools do."

"Life's Tragedy is that we get old to soon and wise too late."

"Honesty is the best policy."

"Keep your eyes wide open before marriage, half shut afterwards."
