- Following the Equator
Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint.
- Mark Twain
There are people who strictly deprive themselves of each and ever eatable, drinkable and smokable which has in any way acquired a shady reputation. They pay this price for health. And health is all they get for it. How strange it is. It is like paying out your whole fortune for a cow that has gone dry. - Mark Twain's Autobiography
Under our free institutions anybody can poison himself that wants to and will pay the price.
- Mark Twain's Autobiography
- Mark Twain, a Biography
One should not bring sympathy to a sick man. It is always kindly meant, and of course it has to be taken- but it isn't much of an improvement on castor oil. One who has a sick man's true interest at heart will forbear spoken sympathy, and bring him surreptitious soup and fried oysters and other trifles that the doctor has tabooed.
