Here are a few tips and tricks from legendary author Mark Twain. You might pick up a thing or two.

1.) “If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.” 

2.) “Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.” 

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

4.) “Never put off till tomorrow what may be done day after tomorrow just as well.” 

5.) “The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot read.” 

6.) “The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.” 

7.) “Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”

8.) “Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.” 

9.) “Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option.” 

10.) “Loyalty to country ALWAYS. Loyalty to government, when it deserves it.” 

11.) “If you don't read the newspaper, you're uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you're mis-informed.”

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

13.) “The best way to cheer yourself is to try to cheer someone else up.” 

14.) “The human race has only one really effective weapon and that is laughter.” 

15.) “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” 

16.) “Always acknowledge a fault. This will throw those in authority off their guard and give you an opportunity to commit more.” 

17.) “Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.” 

18.) “Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.” 

19.) “There's one way to find out if a man is honest: ask him; if he says yes, you know he's crooked.” 

20.) “It's better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt.” 

21.) “Worrying is like paying a debt you don't owe.”
