Mark Twain, one of the (if not the) greatest American writer’s of all time, was brilliant beyond his unique storytelling ability. Here are several of his more inspirational quotes:

  • “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
  • “The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.”
  • “When angry, count to four. When very angry, swear.”
  • “Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living; the world owes you nothing; it was here first.”
  • “Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear.”

Check out Henri Junttila’s article for a few more and her ideas about how these quotes can help change your life. That is, assuming you want to change your life. Otherwise, just enjoy the quotes.
