Bite-Size Twain: Wit and Wisdom from the Literary Legend
On kindness: Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
On friends: Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.
On growing old: Take any road you please...it curves always, which is a continual promise, whereas straight roads reveal everything at a glance and kill interest.
On truth and lies: many when they come to die have spent all the truth that was in them, and enter the next world as paupers. I have saved up enough to make an astonishment there.
On health and fitness: Part of the secret success in life is to eat what you like and let the food it out inside.
