Cool here. Fall is in the air if not exactly on the calender. Yet.
Words and thoughts. There have been many great books I have read. Many great thoughts I have been exposed to.
Of all the great thinkers, it is hard for me to beat the Great One Himself, Mark Twain. An American Original, and with a sense of humor as well.
I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
In an age when so many are educated far beyond their level of intelligence, this is golden.
There is also homespun and practical wisdom:
I thoroughly disapprove of duels. If a man should challenge me, I would take him kindly and forgivingly by the hand and lead him to a quiet place and kill him.
But mainly, he was smart, and funny...
Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence in society.
There are many people whose words mean much to me, but I picked Mark Twain. I could have picked many many others...but Twain is an original, and is brilliant.
The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them.
TOTD: What thoughts or quotes mean or have meant something to you? Not necessarily the words you live by, but words that mean something to you. Who do you listen to?
