Mark Twain’s Guide to Living an Awesome Life: 7 Essential Tips | Life @ Work | Scoop.it

“The man who doesn’t read good books has no advantage over the man who can’t read them.”


“Name the greatest of all inventors. Accident.”


“Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society.”
