"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."- James Thurber, American humorist, illustrator (1894-1961)

"Be simple in words, manners, and gestures. Amuse as well as instruct. If you can make a man laugh, you can make him think and make him like and believe you." - Alfred E. Smith, American politician (1873-1944)

"Humor is something that thrives between man's aspirations and his limitations. There is more logic in humor than in anything else. Because, you see, humor is truth." - Victor Borge, Danish entertainer, pianist (1909-2000)
