Mark Twain Mug & Quote

June 14, 2008

I like this quote because it is really funny on the surface, but also has a much deeper underside that speaks to real advice every person should embody. In fact, it has two key points that I think Twain would want a person to understand, and live by. The first, is that you must be skeptical of what you read, hear or gather. There is no such thing as perfect information and if you take everything at face value you will part of the blind masses making senseless decisions that are bound to destroy the freedoms and liberties of another person. Two, don’t be so serious! I know these two interpretations seem to be in contradiction to each other but they aren’t. Both deal with the relaxed, non-fanatical approach to life. If this quote was a friend of yours, he would be the person that sits in a rocking chair on the porch saying “Take it easy…”

Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint.
-Mark Twain
