Famous quotes containing the word comic:

    The deeply thoughtful and human consciousness of a Macbeth is not found in comedy. Comic action tends to be as Bergson described it, physical or purblind, instead of highly conscious. Similarly, the great comic actor specializes in the presentation of mental obtuseness.
    William G. McCollom (b. 1911)

    The real charm of the United States is that it is the only comic country ever heard of.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
