George Bernard Shaw Quotes about humour

The best-humour'd man, with the worst-humour'd Muse. .

Oliver Goldsmith Quotes about humour

H. G. Wells Quotes about humour
#20776 Richard III (play)

Was ever woman in this humour woo'd? Was ever woman in this humour won? I'll have her; — but I will not keep her long. .

Richard III (play) Quotes about humour
#24580 The Prince

And here it is to be noted that hatred is incurred as well on account of good actions as of bad; or which reason, as I have already said, a Prince who would maintain his authority is often compelled to be other than good. For when the class, be it the people, the soldiers, or the nobles, on whom you judge it necessary to rely for your support, is corrupt, you must needs adapt yourself to its humours, and satisfy these, in which case virtuous conduct will only prejudice you. .

The Prince Quotes about humour
#25052 W. Somerset Maugham

There are men whose sense of humour is so ill developed that they still bear a grudge againstbecause he dethroned them from the central position in the universe. They feel it a personal affront that they can no longer consider themselves the pivot upon which turns the whole of created things. .

W. Somerset Maugham Quotes about humour
#27660 David Hume

If the material world rests upon a similar ideal world, this ideal world must rest upon some other; and so on, without end. It were better, therefore, never to look beyond the present material world. By supposing it to contain the principle of its order within itself, we really assert it to be God; and the sooner we arrive at that Divine Being, so much the better. When you go one step beyond the mundane system, you only excite an inquisitive humour which it is impossible ever to satisfy. .

David Hume Quotes about humour
#39462 Bj¶rk

His wicked sense of humour suggests exciting sex His fingers focus on her Her touches He's Venus as a Boy! .

Bj¶rk Quotes about humour
#45601 Monty Python's Flying Circus

Mr. Anchovy: I've been a chartered accountant for 20 years. I want a new job. Something exciting that will let me live! Counselor: Well, chartered accoutancy is a rather exciting job, isn't it? Mr. Anchovy: Exciting?! No, it's not! It's dull! Dull, dull, my God it's dull! It's so dull and tedious and stuffy and boring and desperately dull! Counselor: Well, er, yes Mr. Anchovy, but you see your report here says that you are an extremely dull person. You see, our experts describe you as an appallingly dull fellow, unimaginative, timid, lacking in initiative, spineless, easily dominated, no sense of humour, tedious company and irrepressibly drab and awful. And whereas in most professions these would be considerable drawbacks, in , they're a positive boon. .

Monty Python's Flying Circus Quotes about humour
#45676 Khalil Gibran

A sense of humour is a sense of proportion. .

Khalil Gibran Quotes about humour
#46238 John Locke

Thus parents, by humouring and cockering them when little, corrupt the principles of nature in their , and wonder afterwards to taste the bitter waters, when they themselves have poison’d the fountain. .

John Locke Quotes about humour
#46282 John Locke

The softer you find your child is, the more you are to seek occasions, at fit times, thus to harden him. The great art in this is, to begin with what is but very little painful, and to proceed by insensible degrees, when you are playing, and in good humour with him, and speaking well of him: and when you have once got him to think himself made amends for his suffering by the praise is given him for his courage; when he can take pride in giving such marks of his manliness, and can prefer the reputation of being brave and stout, to the avoiding a little pain, or the shrinking under it; you need nor despair in time and by the assistance of his growing reason, to master his timorousness, and mend the weakness of his constitution. .

John Locke Quotes about humour
#46294 John Locke

This I think is sufficiently evident, that children generally hate to be idle. All the care then is, that their busy humour should be constantly employ'd in something of use to them; which, if you will attain, you must make what you would have them do a recreation to them, and not a business. .

John Locke Quotes about humour
#48093 William Hazlitt

Danger is a good teacher, and makes apt scholars. So are disgrace, defeat, exposure to immediate scorn and laughter. There is no opportunity in such cases for self-delusion, no idling time away, no being off your guard (or you must take the consequences) — neither is there any room for humour or caprice or prejudice. .

William Hazlitt Quotes about humour
#53920 Waris Ahluwalia

People who know me know that there's a light-hearted side, humour... But you could easily say I am cheeky. .

Waris Ahluwalia Quotes about humour
#59030 Jennifer Aniston

My parents' divorce left me with a lot of sadness and pain and acting, and especially humour, was my way of dealing with all that. .

Jennifer Aniston Quotes about humour
#60845 Kelley Armstrong

The first piece of 'long' fiction I wrote was a novella parody of Stephen King's 'Christine.' I was in high school, and my version was about a kid with a possessed locker instead of a possessed car. It was also my first attempt at humour, which fell completely flat because no one who read it realized it was a parody! .

Kelley Armstrong Quotes about humour
#63147 Jane Austen

Good-humoured, unaffected girls, will not do for a man who has been used to sensible women. They are two distinct orders of being. .

Jane Austen Quotes about humour
#63666 Richard Ayoade

I like Roy Orbison's video for 'I Drove All Night' because it's so literal. It is just a man driving throughout the night. I like that silliness. To be in a video is a ridiculous thing. It's almost impossible to do it without any humour. .

Richard Ayoade Quotes about humour
#65659 Colin Baker

One way of watering down the effects of violence is to approach it in a more lighthearted way. I don't mean to say that you laugh when somebody has their arm sawn off, but you can diffuse fear with humour. .

Colin Baker Quotes about humour
#66332 Clare Balding

The most important quality in a partner is a sense of humour. .

Clare Balding Quotes about humour
#68870 John Barrowman

My humour and my work ethic definitely come from my Scottish side, and I have to say the sense of humour doesn't really translate when I'm in America. .

John Barrowman Quotes about humour
#68879 John Barrowman

The one thing that makes 'Torchwood' work so brilliantly and makes it a little bit above the rest of all other sci-fi dramas out there is that we have a sense of humour. .

John Barrowman Quotes about humour
#71674 Kate Beckinsale

If someone had told me years ago that sharing a sense of humour was so vital to partnerships, I could have avoided a lot of sex! .

Kate Beckinsale Quotes about humour
#76158 Sanjeev Bhaskar

It always interested me that 'Goodness Gracious Me' and 'The Kumars,' when shown around the world, were referred to as British comedy. It was only here that they were referred to as Asian comedy, even though I always felt it was very British in its humour and structure. .

Sanjeev Bhaskar Quotes about humour
#77710 Shane Black

I always have humour in my action movies. I think characters that make jokes under fire are more real. It somehow helps put you in their shoes. .

Shane Black Quotes about humour
#78215 Quentin Blake

I know some children's writers write for specific children, or for the children they once were, but I never have. I just thought children might like my sort of visual humour. .

Quentin Blake Quotes about humour
#79365 David Blunkett

If you have a sense of irony or humour, you're usually cut down, as you're usually distorted or misinterpreted. So it does lead to us being slightly more dour and staid and predictable than would otherwise be the case, which I personally find quite frustrating - because if you don't laugh occasionally in my job, you cry most of the time. .

David Blunkett Quotes about humour
#80580 Samantha Bond

'Downton' is one of the best jobs in the world, and I'm looking forward to the next series for Maggie Smith's wicked sense of humour. .

Samantha Bond Quotes about humour
#85816 Adam Brody

Adam Brody Quotes about humour
#87222 Jeffrey Brown

I usually balance out autobiography with goofy, amusing stuff to help keep the humour in my more serious work. .

Jeffrey Brown Quotes about humour
#91602 Kate Bush

I think that there's always room for humour in music. It's something that always takes itself so seriously, which I think is a bit of a shame. .

Kate Bush Quotes about humour
#96659 Edward Carpenter

I was in the Square at the time. The crowd was a most good-humoured, easy going, smiling crowd; but presently it was transformed. A regiment of mounted police came cantering up. .

Edward Carpenter Quotes about humour
#97178 Jasper Carrott

I used to be a columnist for 'Golf Monthly' and have contributed articles for national newspapers based on the humour that is in abundance in the game, which is more than can be said of tennis. .

Jasper Carrott Quotes about humour
#100619 Oona Chaplin

People think that I can just walk into a room and get a job, but of the 200 interviews and auditions I go through a year, I may get three yeses. I just have to use my sense of humour to get me through. .

Oona Chaplin Quotes about humour
#103491 Alexa Chung

London Fashion Week is so different from any of the others. Compared to the strictness in New York, London seems freer from commercial constraints. Truer to the process, to street style, to a sense of humour. .

Alexa Chung Quotes about humour
#106550 Sacha Baron Cohen

I think if you come from a history of persecution you have to develop a sense of humour. .

Sacha Baron Cohen Quotes about humour
#109997 Wendy Cope

The interesting thing is that you don't often meet a poet who doesn't have a sense of humour, and some of them do keep it out of their poems because they're afraid of being seen as light versifiers. .

Wendy Cope Quotes about humour
#111944 Brian Cox

There's so much light in Broughty Ferry. I think the humour in Glasgow is darker, because it's much more gloomy, there's a perpetual misery there. .

Brian Cox Quotes about humour
#115786 Josephine de La Baume

I think the French have a romantic cliche that Englishmen have great style, great music, irony and sense of humour. Well, sometimes cliches are true. .

Josephine de La Baume Quotes about humour
#122146 Riteish Deshmukh

I think any kind of comic sequence is as easy and as difficult as it is written. So, if it is written well, then it becomes easy. Sometimes you find it difficult because the humour is not coming out. .

Riteish Deshmukh Quotes about humour
#122150 Riteish Deshmukh

I personally feel that, for some people, their physique and looks work for them. And when you're deprived of both these aspects, you rely on humour! .

Riteish Deshmukh Quotes about humour
#131653 Adrian Edmondson

There is a lot of rubbish written about toilet humour - people saying it is childish and pretending it is beneath them - but there is no doubting the effectiveness of a really good willy gag. .

Adrian Edmondson Quotes about humour
#131656 Adrian Edmondson

From the stage I've seen people of all ages absolutely roaring at really good toilet humour. .

Adrian Edmondson Quotes about humour
#132900 Andrew Eldritch

Apparently, I have a totally different sense of humour. .

Andrew Eldritch Quotes about humour
#141071 Colin Firth

I think that London is very much like that. I find there's humour in the air and people are interesting. And I think that it's a place which is constantly surprising. The worst thing about it? I think it can be smug and aggressive. .

Colin Firth Quotes about humour
#141224 Tibor Fischer

I went to a British Council event a while back and there were lots of German professors of literature. About half of them were convinced I had a German sense of humour and the other half were sure it was British. They are probably still arguing about it now. .
