influence

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

Mark Twain (Samuel L. Clemens), Merle Johnson’s More Maxims of Mark (1927)

Note: This quote is commonly attributed to Mr. Twain, and Johnson’s reference (above) is the earliest record of this quote; that being said, there is no record of the exact quote in any of Twain’s published writings (via quoteinvestigator).
