Publisher's Summary

“Wit, by itself, is of little account. It becomes of moment only when grounded on wisdom!” and “Wisdom teaches us that none but birds should go out early and that not even birds should do it unless they are out of worms!”

Those are the words of Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known by the pen name Mark Twain, acclaimed as "the father of American literature" and "greatest humorist the United States has produced”.

Mark Twain had something witty and wise to say on just about any topic, and his words resonate surprisingly well today as they did more than a century ago. “Get your facts first, then you can distort them as much as you please” sounds as if someone is talking about today’s political landscape. But that is what Mark Twain said in 1890! 

He was a defender of women's rights and believed, "What would men be without women? Scarce, sir...mighty scarce." He was against slavery and commented, "Our Civil War was a blot on our history, but not as great a blot as the buying and selling of Negro souls." He advised people to “keep a tidy soul” and believed that “The secret of getting ahead is getting started!”

Here are what this audiobook will offer you:

  • Set of 365 best quotes of wit and wisdom gathered from Mark Twain's books, letters, lectures, and autobiography
  • A perfect gift for family, friends, and colleagues
  • An easy book that you just listen to anytime, start anywhere, and always enjoy

Nice book

I am not sure the narration was on point. Sometimes the best books loose their place just because of the voiceover. I wanted to love this one.
