In Humour Quotes
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.

In Humour Quotes
Humor has been a fashioning instrument in America, cleaving its way through the national life, holding tenaciously to the spread elements of that life. Its mode has often been swift and coarse and ruthless, beyond art and beyond established civilization. It has engaged in warfare against the established heritage, against the bonds of pioneer existence. Its objective -- the unconscious objective of a disunited people -- has seemed to be that of creating fresh bonds, a new unity, the semblance of a society and the rounded completion of an American type.

In Humour Quotes
Any discussion of the problems of being funny in America will not make sense unless we substitute the word wit for humor. Humor inspires sympathetic good-natured laughter and is favored by the "healing-power" gang. Wit goes for the jugular, not the jocular, and it's the opposite of football; instead of building character, it tears it down.
