Leo Rosten

Humor is the affectionate communication of insight.
Leo Rosten

Leo Rosten

Leo Rosten

If you are going to do something wrong at least enjoy it.
Leo Rosten

Proverbs often contradict one another, as any reader soon discovers. The sagacity that advises us to look before we leap promptly warns us that if we hesitate we are lost; that absence makes the heart grow fonder, but out of sight, out of mind.
Leo Rosten

Satire is focused bitterness.
Leo Rosten

Some things are so unexpected that no one is prepared for them.
Leo Rosten

The only reason for being a professional writer is that you can't help it.
Leo Rosten

Truth is stranger than fiction; fiction has to make sense.
Leo Rosten

We see things as we are, not as they are.
