My Secret Crush

Gorgeous, ain't he! A friend posted one of his quotes on Facebook, reviving my obsession with the man and his mouth.

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear.

I LOVE his expressions, there is one for every situation.

The most interesting information comes from children, for they tell all they know and then stop.

Mark Twain. Novelist, satirist, humorist, lecturer.

Substitute "damn" every time you're inclined to write "very"; your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be.

Real name Samuel Langhorne Clemens, friend of the famous: politicians, royalty, industrialists, artists.

Sing like no one's listening, love like you've never been hurt, dance like nobody's watching, and live like its heaven on earth.

I do so love a man of quick wit. *Sigh*

It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.

Let us be thankful for the fools. But for them the rest of us could not succeed.

Brilliant! Another one of his I love is "Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect."
