Pathetic Quotations

Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance.
H. L. Mencken

Everything human is pathetic. The secret source of humor itself is not joy but sorrow. There is no humor in heaven.
Mark Twain

Anyone who thinks they're important is usually just a pompous moron who can't deal with his or her own pathetic insignificance and the fact that what they do is meaningless and inconsequential.
William Thomas

I know of nothing more despicable and pathetic than a man who devotes all the hours of the waking day to the making of money for money's sake.
John D. Rockefeller

You either evolve or you don't. I don't like old people on a rock n' roll stage. I think they look pathetic, me included. And the fact that I represent an era means I can't just go out there and do all new stuff. They would all say, 'Sing 'White Rabbit,'' and I'd say no? That's rude.
Grace Slick
