Let’s All Wish Mark Twain a Happy Birthday!

We invite you to celebrate Mark Twain’s birthday by enjoying some of his best-known quotes.

November 30th marks American author Mark Twain’s (born Samuel Clemens) birthday.  Among Twain’s most famous literary works are The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.  Known for his wit, humor, and satirical style, Twain has long been celebrated as one of America’s most well-loved and most influential authors.  On his birthday, let’s remember the talented author whose words have touched so many of us with his most memorable quotes.

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.”

“Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.”

“Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.”

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”

“I don’t like to commit myself about heaven and hell—you see, I have friends in both places.”

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

“You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.”

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

“It is not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.”

“The human race has one really effective weapon, and that is laughter.”

Twain began to gain fame when his story, “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County” appeared in the New York Saturday Press on November 18, 1865. Twain’s first book, “The Innocents Abroad,” was published in 1869, “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” in 1876, and “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” in 1885. He wrote 28 books and numerous short stories, letters and sketches.

He is still regarded today as America’s most famous literary icon.
