Favorite Quotes: Mark Twain Truth

"If you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything."
-Mark Twain

This is a new series I've started with quotes by my favorite people. I'm also trying to make sure I know the quotes are real as they're plenty all over the place that are false especially when it comes to politics. I think this Mark Twain quote is fitting for that. We all lie at some point, but the constant liars always have to remember their own fibs or they'll eventually become known as a big fat liar. I try to be truthful always.

  1. I, too, try always to be truthful. First, because it's the right thing to do (thanks, Captain Obvious). And what Mark Twain said.

  11. I'll look forward to the quotes posts. It's much harder to lie than tell the truth. I don't know who said that one but it wasn't me.
