Famous quotes containing the word humorous:

    Oh, to vex me, contraries meet in one:
    Inconstancy unnaturally hath begot
    A constant habit; that when I would not
    I change in vows, and in devotion.

    As my profane Love, and as soon forgot:
    As ridlingly distempered, cold and hot,
    John Donne (1572–1631)

    I can imagine no more comfortable frame of mind for the conduct of life than a humorous resignation.
    W. Somerset Maugham (1874–1966)

    Are driven by wealth as beggars by the itch,”

    “And cannot have a humorous happy speech.”
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
