Humor quotes
Humor
Love is an attachment to another self. Humor is a form of self-detachment -- a way of looking at one's existence, one's misfortune, or one's discomfort. If you really love, if you really know how to laugh, the result is the same: you forget yourself.

- Claude Roy
A person who knows how to laugh at himself will never ceased to be amused.

- Maclaine, Shirley
Nothing spoils a romance so much as a sense of humor in the woman.

- Wilde, Oscar
The wit makes fun of other persons; the satirist makes fun of the world; the humorist makes fun of himself.

- James Thurber
It is the saying of an ancient sage that humor was the only test of gravity, and gravity of humor.

- Shaftesbury
To appreciate nonsense requires a serious interest in life.

- Burgess, (Frank) Gelett
When all is done, human life is, at the greatest and the best, but like a froward child, that must be played with and humored a little to keep it quiet till it falls asleep, and then the care is over.

- Temple, Sir William
Comedy may be big business but it isn't pretty.

- Martin, Steve
Someone bent on suicide won't have much sense of humor left.

- Chuck Palahniuk
Men are happy to be laughed at for their humor, but not for their folly.

- Swift, Jonathan
Listen to the charm of birds in any sequestered woodland on a bright forenoon in early summer. As you try to disentangle the medley of sounds, the first, perhaps, which will strike your ear will be the loud, harsh, monotonous, flippant song of the chaffinch, and the metallic clinking of two or three sorts of titmice. But above the tree-tops, rising, hovering, sinking, the woodlark is fluting tender and low. Above the pastures outside the skylark sings--as he alone can sing; and close by from the hollies rings out the blackbird's tenor--rollicking, audacious, humorous, all but articulate. From the tree above him rises the treble of the thrush, pure as the song of angels; more pure, perhaps, in tone, though neither so varied nor so rich as the song of the nightingale. And there, in the next holly, is the nightingale himself; now croaking like a frog, now talking aside to his wife, and now bursting out into that song, or cycle of songs, in which if any man find sorrow, he himself surely finds none. . . . In Nature there is nothing melancholy.

- Prose Idylls. 1866.
HOMOEOPATHIST, n. The humorist of the medical profession.

- Ambrose Bierce
Humor is a rubber sword--it allows you to make a point without drawing blood.

- Mary Hirsch
Comedy is simply a funny way of being serious.

- Peter Ustinov
They say the seeds of what we will do are in all of us, but it always seemed to me that in those who make jokes in life the seeds are covered with better soil and with a higher grade of manure.

- Hemingway, Ernest
A jest often decides matters of importance more effectual and happily than seriousness.

- Horace
If you can find humor in anything, you can survive it.

- Bill Cosby
A taste for irony has kept more hearts from breaking than a sense of humor, for it takes irony to appreciate the joke which is on oneself.

- Jessamyn West
RAREBIT, n. A Welsh rabbit, in the speech of the humorless, who point out that it is not a rabbit. To whom it may be solemnly explained that the comestible known as toad-in-a-hole is really not a toad, and that _riz-de-veau a la financiere_ is not the smile of a calf prepared after the recipe of a she banker.

- Ambrose Bierce
READING, n. The general body of what one reads. In our country it consists, as a rule, of Indiana novels, short stories in "dialect" and humor in slang. We know by one's reading His learning and breeding; By what draws his laughter We know his Hereafter. Read nothing, laugh never -- The Sphinx was less clever! Jupiter Muke

- Ambrose Bierce
