Witty quotes

I have always admired Mark Twain and George Bernard Shaw for giving the wittiest of quotes. Here are some witty ones from them among others.
  1. The world owns you nothing. It was here first. - Mark Twain
  2. One man who has a mind and knows he can, always beats ten who haven't and don't. - George Bernard Shaw
  3. I know not with what weapon World War III will be fought but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones. - Albert Einstein
  4. Sex is a bad thing because it crumples the clothes. - Jackie Onassis
  5. Never let your sense of morals prevent you from doing what is right. - Isaac
    Asimov
  6. The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.
  7. It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought
    without accepting it. - Aristotle
  8. You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club. -Jack
    London
  9. Those are my principles. If you don't like them, I have others. - Groucho Marx
  10. Plan for the future because that is where you are going to spend the rest of
    your life. -Mark Twain

Regd. No.3, I am skeptical about sticks and stones; I think WWIV would be fought by cockroaches and fungi.
Loved Nos. 4 & 7 - funniest and wittiest (resp.) of the lot
As for No. 10, we so worry about tomorrow that we forget today; and when tomorrow does come, we regret about yesterday. Don't you think so?
No. 6 hit the hardest, though. True, and chillingly so.
