Hangman Quotations

Having the critics praise you is like having the hangman say you've got a pretty neck.
Eli Wallach

When things are difficult, awful, stressful, the thing that always gets you through is a sense of humour. I don't mean - well, maybe I do - laugh at the hangman as he puts the noose around your neck. But an eye, an ear, for the ridiculous, the absurd in life, can get you through a lot.
Paul Merton

Every guilty person is his own hangman.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca

If you violate Nature's laws you are your own prosecuting attorney, judge, jury, and hangman.
Luther Burbank
