Mark Twain was not only an amazing writer of fictitious tales, but he was also remarkable in the way he saw the world he lived in...especially the United States and its government. He lived from 1835 to 1910, and his quotes prove that the more things change, the more they stay the same.


"Reader suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself." - Mark Twain

"Facts are stubborn things, but statistics are more pliable." –Mark Twain

"There are lies, there are damn lies, and then there are statistics." - Mark Twain

"If you don't read the newspaper, you're uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you're mis-informed." –Mark Twain

"Noise proves nothing. Often a hen who has merely laid an egg cackles as if she laid an asteroid." - Mark Twain

"Politicians and diapers must be changed often, and for the same reason." - Mark Twain

"Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience. - Mark Twain

"It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt." - Mark Twain
