Samuel Langhorne Clemens was born on 30th November 1835 (died 21st April 1910) ; the man who we would come to know as Mark Twain. He’s considered to be one of the greatest American authors of all times, but as well as classics like Tom Sawyer and the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Twain was as well known for his quotes and witticisms, many of which hold as true today as they did then.
With that in mind, what better way to celebrate the great American author and humorist than with some Mark Twain quotes that could easily have been written today.

Don’t let schooling interfere with your education.
Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand.
The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them.
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.
Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.
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.
And if we’re honest we think they’ll all be good for another 180 too!
