“The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot read.”

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.”

“The only place where “success” comes before “work” is in the dictionary.”

“Wisdom is the reward you get for a lifetime of listening when you would rather have talked. “

“In the long run always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.”

“It is wiser to find out than to suppose.”

“Never argue with stupid people, the will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.”

“Comparison is the death of joy.”

“In a good bookroom you feel in some mysterious way that you are absorbing the wisdom contained in all the books through your skin, without even opening them.”

“Courage is the resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.”

– Mark Twain
