Quotes About Humor

The quotes about humor teach us a lot, sometimes about writing and sometimes about life. Here are my favorites:humor

  • Humor is a prelude to faith and Laughter is the beginning of prayer. Reinhold Niebuhr
  • Brevity is the soul of wit.William Shakespeare
  • Dissecting humor is like dissecting a frog.  They both die in the process. E.B. White.
  • A sense of humour keen enough to show a man his own absurdities will keep him from the commission of all sins, or nearly all, save those that are worth committing. Samuel Butler
  • To appreciate nonsense requires a serious interest in life. Gelett Burgess
  • If your wish to glimpse inside a human soul and get to know a man, don’t bother analyzing his ways of being silent, of talking, of weeping, or seeing how much he is moved by noble ideas; you’ll get better results if you just watch him laugh.  If he laughs well, he’s a good man… All I claim to know is that laughter is the most reliable gauge of human nature. Dostoevski,
