Mark Twain: Tell The Truth

You may know Mark Twain for some of his very popular books like Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. He was a writer and also a humorist, satirist and lecturer. Twain is also known for his many – and often funny – quotes. Here are a few of my favorite quotes from him.
