Humorist Quotations

There's no trick to being a humorist when you have the whole government working for you.
Will Rogers

Wit - the salt with which the American humorist spoils his intellectual cookery by leaving it out.
Ambrose Bierce

The wit makes fun of other persons; the satirist makes fun of the world; the humorist makes fun of himself, but in so doing, he identifies himself with people - that is, people everywhere, not for the purpose of taking them apart, but simply revealing their true nature.
James Thurber

It's easy being a humorist when you've got the whole government working for you.
Will Rogers

No humorist is under any obligation to provide answers and probably if you were to delve into the literary history of humour it's probably all about not providing answers because the humorist essentially says: this is the way things are.
P. J. O'Rourke
