Humor quotes
Humor
Humor is the first of the gifts to perish in a foreign tongue.

- Virginia Woolf
It is commonly said that ridicule is the best test of truth; for that it will not stick where it is not just. I deny it. A truth learned in a certain light, and attacked in certain words, by men of wit and humor, may, and often doth, become ridiculous, at least so far, that the truth is only remembered and repeated for the sake of the ridicule.

- Chesterfield, Lord
A person who knows how to laugh at himself will never ceased to be amused.

- Maclaine, Shirley
Humor is an affirmation of dignity, a declaration of man's superiority to all that befalls him.

- Gary, Roman
The only rules comedy can tolerate are those of taste, and the only limitations those of libel.

- James Thurber
By starving emotions we become humorless, rigid and stereotyped; by repressing them we become literal, reformatory and holier-than-thou; encouraged, they perfume life; discouraged, they poison it.

- Collins, Joseph
One never needs their humor as much as when they argue with a fool.

- Proverb, Chinese
Humor is our way of defending ourselves from life's absurdities by thinking absurdly about them.

- Lewis Mumford
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.
Charlie Chaplin's genius was in comedy. He has no sense of humor, particularly about himself.

- Chaplin, Lita Grey
The hall-mark of American humor is its pose of illiteracy.

- Knox, Ronald
I could not tread these perilous paths in safety, if I did not keep a saving sense of humor.

- Nelson, Lord
In conversation, humor is worth more than wit and easiness more than knowledge.

- Herbert, George
Levity is often less foolish and gravity less wise than each of them appears.

- Colton, Charles Caleb
Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives.

- Madwed, Sidney
True humor springs not more from the head than from the heart. It is not contempt; its essence is love. It issues not in laugther, but in still smiles, which lie far deeper.

- Thomas Carlyle
A clever, imagination, humorous request can open closed doors and closed minds.

- Ross, Percy
Comedy is nothing more than tragedy deferred.

- Pico Iyer
Where humor is concerned there are no standards - no one can say what is good or bad, although you can be sure that everyone will.

- John Kenneth Galbraith
A rich man's joke is always funny.

- Brown, Thomas Edward
