Author Quotes

Without speech no reason, without reason no speech.

An orgy looks particularly alluring seen through the mists of righteous indignation.

If only man could be induced to laugh more they might hate less, and find more serenity here on earth. If they cannot worship together, or accept the same laws, or tolerate the wonderful diversity of thought and behavior and physique with which they have been blessed, at least they can laugh together.

Laughter, indeed, is God’s therapy... in order that we might understand that at the heart of our mortal existence there lies a mystery, at once unutterably beautiful and hilariously funny.

The true way to render ourselves happy is to love our duty and find in it our pleasures.
