Mark Twain on Clothing, Nudity, and Democracy

Mark_Twain-Shirtless-ca1883Mark Twain:

“Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society.”

Another of his priceless quotes:

“Strip the human race, absolutely naked, and it would be a real democracy. “

And yet another quote:

“There is no power without clothes. It is the power that governs the human race. Strip its chiefs to the skin, and no State could be governed; naked officials could exercise no authority; they would look (and be) like everybody else”

About A Naturist's Lens

I am a therapist that focuses on the use of active imagination, photograph, dreamwork and Jungian Psychology in order to uncover the whole person hidden beneath layers of personae, complexes and clothing.

  2. I LIKE that: ” “Strip the human race, absolutely naked, and it would be a real democracy. ”
    I’m still reminded of how some ‘founders’ of the A.J.C., in the Netherlands (where I was born) tried to show / prove how we’re all humans with good intentions!!
