Quotations about Humor



Humor is a reminder that no matter how high the throne one sits on, one sits on one’s bottom.  ~Taki

Humor is perhaps a sense of intellectual perspective:  an awareness that some things are really important, others not; and that the two kinds are most oddly jumbled in everyday affairs.  ~Christopher Morley

Humor is merely tragedy standing on its head with its pants torn.  ~Irvin S. Cobb

Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not; a sense of humor to console him for what he is.  ~Francis Bacon

Humor results when society says you can’t scratch certain things in public, but they itch in public.  ~Tom Walsh

Humor has a way of bringing people together.  It unites people.  In fact, I’m rather serious when I suggest that someone should plant a few whoopee cushions in the United Nations.  ~Ron Dentinger

Every survival kit should include a sense of humor.  ~Author Unknown

Humor is the great thing, the saving thing.  The minute it crops up, all our irritation and resentments slip away, and a sunny spirit takes their place.  ~Mark Twain

Humor is emotional chaos remembered in tranquillity.  ~James Thurber

Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds.  A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing.  ~William James

After God created the world, He made man and woman.  Then, to keep the whole thing from collapsing, He invented humor.  ~Bill Kelly, “Mordillo”

If I had no sense of humor, I would long ago have committed suicide.  ~Mahatma Gandhi

The satirist shoots to kill while the humorist brings his prey back alive and eventually releases him again for another chance.  ~Peter De Vries

Humor is just another defense against the universe.  ~Mel Brooks

Humor is reason gone mad.  ~Groucho Marx

A sense of humor is a major defense against minor troubles.  ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic’s Notebook, 1966

Comedy is simply a funny way of being serious.  ~Peter Ustinov

Comedy has to be based on truth.  You take the truth and you put a little curlicue at the end.  ~Sid Caesar

Warning:  Humor may be hazardous to your illness.  ~Ellie Katz

Nothing is more curious than the almost savage hostility that humor excites in those who lack it.  ~George Saintsbury

Humor is… despair refusing to take itself seriously.  ~Arland Ussher

Humor is a rubber sword – it allows you to make a point without drawing blood.  ~Mary Hirsch

The kind of humor I like is the thing that makes me laugh for five seconds and think for ten minutes.  ~William Davis

Many a true word is spoken in jest.  ~English Proverb

I think the next best thing to solving a problem is finding some humor in it.  ~Frank A. Clark

Above all else: go out with a sense of humor.  It is needed armor.  Joy in one’s heart and some laughter on one’s lips is a sign that the person down deep has a pretty good grasp of life.  ~Hugh Sidey

There is no defense against adverse fortune which is so effectual as an habitual sense of humor.  ~Thomas W. Higginson

Let your humour always be good-humour, in the double sense of the phrase:  if it comes from a bad humour, it is almost sure to be bad humour.  ~Augustus William Hare and Julius Charles Hare, Guesses at Truth, by Two Brothers, 1827

Humor prevents one from becoming a tragic figure even though he/she is involved in tragic events.  ~E.T. “Cy” Eberhart

Humor is the instinct for taking pain playfully.  ~Max Eastman

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs – jolted by every pebble in the road.  ~Henry Ward Beecher

There is more logic in humor than in anything else.  Because, you see, humor is truth.  ~Victor Borge, London Times, 3 January 1984

Someone once defined humor as a way to keep from killing yourself.  I keep my sense of humor and I stay alive.  ~Abe Burrows

Humor is an affirmation of dignity, a declaration of man’s superiority to all that befalls him.  ~Roman Gary

Humor is, I think, the subtlest and chanciest of literary forms.  It is surely not accidental that there are a thousand novelists, essayists, poets or journalists for each humorist.  It is a long, long time between James Thurbers.  ~Leo Rosten
