Hi again I have a couple more but I don't know who there from.
'He who laughs last, laughs longest.'
'power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely'
"Life too is precious to waste - to spend on anything but the best"
I'm not sure this is really Mark Twain, but it sounds like him.
"Always tell the truth. It will delight your friends and confound your enemies."
These others are verified:
"Truth is mighty and will prevail. There is nothing the matter with this, except that it ain't so."
"If you don't read the newspaper, you are uninformed; if you do read the newspaper, you are misinformed."
"Every generalization is dangerous, especially this one."
"Always tell the truth. That way, you don't have to remember what you said."
"I have yet to see any problem, however complicated, which, when looked at in the right way did not become still more complicated.'
It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

"You have to want to fly so much you are willing to give up being a caterpillar" Came the answer Hope For the Flowers
