More from Mark Twain

When even the brightest mind in our world has been trained up from childhood in a superstition of any kind, it will never be possible for that mind, in its maturity, to examine sincerely, dispassionately, and conscientiously any evidence or any circumstance which shall seem to cast a doubt upon the validity of that superstition. I doubt if I could do it myself.

A classic is something that everybody wants to have read and nobody wants to read.

The easy confidence with which I know another man’s religion is folly teaches me to suspect that my own is also.

When we remember that we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained.

Notebook 1935
