Behold the fool saith "Put not all thine eggs in the one basket"- which is but a manner of saying, "Scatter your money and your attention"; but the wise man saith, "Put all your eggs in the one basket and - watch that basket!"
Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)

Eloquence is the essential thing in a speech, not information.
Any emotion, if it is sincere, is involuntary.
Good judgment comes from experience. And where does experience come from? Experience comes from bad judgment.
I am not one of those who in expressing opinions confine themselves to facts.
Get your facts first, and then you can distort 'em as much as you please.
Facts are stubborn, but statistics are more pliable.
If men bore children, there would only be one born in each family.
More than one cigar at a time is excessive smoking.
Good breeding consists in concealing how much we think of ourselves and how little we think of the other person.
