It ain't what you don’t know that gets you into trouble.

It's what you know for sure that just ain’t so.

Mark Twain  (1835 - 1910) American Author

Quotations are extremely effective at capturing and concisely communicating thoughts and ideas. They can be inspirational but more importantly quotations can help us reveal and assess the assumptions, values and beliefs that underlie the ways in which we perceive the world.

I have compiled over 800 quotations and short excerpts on this website. It is an eclectic mix but most of them are inspirational or insightful in nature and relate to knowledge, learning or personal development in some form.

Quotations from Mark Twain:

 There are some things that can beat smartness and foresight? Awkwardness and stupidity can. The best swordsman in the world doesn't need to fear the second best swordsman in the world; no, the person for him to be afraid of is some ignorant antagonist who has never had a sword in his hand before; he doesn't do the thing he ought to do, and so the expert isn't prepared for him; he does the thing he ought not to do; and often it catches the expert out and ends him on the spot.

Mark Twain , (1835 - 1910) American Author



 The human race has only one really effective weapon, and this is laughter.

Mark Twain , (1835 - 1910) American Author



 Fortune knocks at every man's door once in a life, but in a good many cases the man is in the neighbouring saloon and does not hear her.

Mark Twain , (1835 - 1910) American Author



 The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex, overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, then starting on the first one.

Mark Twain , (1835 - 1910) American Author



 If you hold a cat by the tail, you learn things that cannot be learned in any other way.

Mark Twain , (1835 - 1910) American Author



 We should be careful to get out of an experience all the wisdom that is in it -- not like the cat that sits on a hot stove lid. She will never sit down on a hot lid again -- and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.

Mark Twain , (1835 - 1910) American Author



 Plan for the future because that's where you are going to spend the rest of your life.

Mark Twain , (1835 - 1910) American Author



 The secret of success is making your vocation your vacation.

Mark Twain , (1835 - 1910) American Author



 It ain't what you don’t know that gets you into trouble.

It's what you know for sure that just ain’t so.

Mark Twain , (1835 - 1910) American Author
