Wit is a weapon. Jokes are a masculine way
of inflicting superiority. But humour is the pursuit of a gentle grin,
usually in solitude.
Frank Muir (b. 1920), British
Humor is emotional chaos remembered in tranquility.
James Thurber (1894-1961),
To appreciate nonsense requires a serious
interest in life.
Gelett Burgess (1866-1951),
Humor, a good sense of it, is to Americans
what manhood is to Spaniards and we will go to great lengths to prove it.
Experiments with laboratory rats have shown that, if one psychologist in
the room laughs at something a rat does, all of the other psychologists
in the room will laugh equally. Nobody wants to be left holding the joke.
Garrison Keillor (b. 1942),
Witticism. A sharp and clever
remark, usually quoted and seldom noted; what the Philistine is pleased
to call a “joke.”
Ambrose Bierce (1842–1914),
U.S. author. The Devil’s Dictionary .
