Humor

Famous quotes containing the word humor:

    Carlyle’s humor is vigorous and titanic, and has more sense in it than the sober philosophy of many another. It is not to be disposed of by laughter and smiles merely; it gets to be too serious for that: only they may laugh who are not hit by it.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Let me work;
    For I can give his humor the true bent.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The comic is the perception of the opposite; humor is the feeling of it.
    Umberto Eco (b. 1932)
