„Jeżeli zwierzę coś zrobi, nazywamy to instynktem, jeżeli zrobi to człowiek, nazywamy to inteligencją.“

„The colonists, it seems, had to "pay taxes to which their consent had never been asked."“

—  Will Cuppy

Footnote: Today we pay taxes but our consent has been asked, and we have told the government to go ahead and tax us all they want to. We like it.
The Decline and Fall of Practically Everybody (1950), Part V: Merrie England, George III

„I think you are absolutely right about everything, except I think humor springs from rage, hay fever, overdue rent and miscellaneous hell.“
