“Humor is the only test of gravity, and gravity of humor; for a subject which will not bear raillery is suspicious, and a jest which will not bear serious examination is false wit.”
“I lose my respect for the man who can make the mystery of sex the subject of a coarse jest, yet when you speak earnestly and seriously on the subject, is silent”
Henry David Thoreau
“He jests at scars that never felt a wound”
“War is the statesman's game, the priest's delight, The lawyer's jest, the hired assassin's trade.”
Percy Bysshe Shelley
“The squirrel that you kill in jest, dies in earnest.”
“We never know where we go when we are going, We jest and shut the door; Fate - following behind us -bolts it, And we accost no more”
