Absurd Quotations

Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.
Voltaire

For me, comedy starts as a spew, a kind of explosion, and then you sculpt it from there, if at all. It comes out of a deeper, darker side. Maybe it comes from anger, because I'm outraged by cruel absurdities, the hypocrisy that exists everywhere, even within yourself, where it's hardest to see.
Robin Williams

A Republic without parties is a complete anomaly. The histories of all popular governments show absurd is the idea of their attempting to exist without parties.
Franklin Pierce

It is absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious.
