In such societies it is common for ordinary people to seek out celibate spiritual leaders for marriage, love and sometimes sexual guidance. This strikes me as a particularly stupid kind of folly. Nobody ever asks a vegetarian for a recommendation for a steak house ~ Scott Andrews
Volpone Satire quotes by Scott Andrews
Some books are lies frae end to end,
And some great lies were never penn'd ... ~ Robert Burns
Volpone Satire quotes by Robert Burns
She caught you. Therefore she gets your treasure. ~ Kathy Bryson

Volpone Satire quotes by Michel Templet
While you live, whatever your state while on earth, act the generous and manly part; and never, never, either manually or with the lash of satire, war with the weak ~ T.J. Llewelyn Prichard
Volpone Satire quotes by T.J. Llewelyn Prichard
I satirize at all times, and my hyperboles are as nothing compared to the events to which they refer. ~ Marshall McLuhan
Volpone Satire quotes by Marshall McLuhan
Some readers took 'Heaven's My Destination' as a satire on Christianity and the Midwest, but today it reads like a loving comedy. ~ Robert Gottlieb
Volpone Satire quotes by Robert Gottlieb
A French newspaper accidentally ran a picture of Amy and me from the Katie Couric sketch thinking it was a picture of Couric and Palin. Although I think that had less to do with the "power of satire" and more to do with the fact that to the French, we are all indistinguishable fat dough balls. ~ Tina Fey
Volpone Satire quotes by Tina Fey
They see nothing indecent in sexual intercourse, whether heterosexual or homosexual, and indulge in it quite openly, in full view of everyone. The only exception was Socrates, who was always swearing that his relations with young men were purely Platonic, but nobody believed him for a moment, and Hyacinthus and Narcissus gave first-hand evidence to the contrary. ~ Lucian Of Samosata
Volpone Satire quotes by Lucian Of Samosata
Popular culture bombards us with examples of animals being humanized for all sorts of purposes, ranging from education to entertainment to satire to propaganda. Walt Disney, for example, made us forget that Mickey is a mouse, and Donald a duck. George Orwell laid a cover of human societal ills over a population of livestock. ~ Frans De Waal
Volpone Satire quotes by Frans De Waal
Had the facial plumage been of a paler hue it would have looked like a pile of horse crap on a winter's day. ~ St John Morris
Volpone Satire quotes by St John Morris
Conservative n.
A person who possesses an underdeveloped taste for tyranny.

A person who believes in liberty, but only for the state. ~ Leslie Starr O'Hara
Volpone Satire quotes by Leslie Starr O'Hara
Tobak Davenport, who is a cross between some Sugar Puffs and Lynn Faulds-Wood, was squatting there before being removed by the local constabulary after he went round to complain about Luther Blisset's pet turkey fouling the communal herb garden. ~ St John Morris
Volpone Satire quotes by St John Morris
When you trick somebody into participating in a small-time fraud, it's called a 'scam.' But when the scam is so big that people have no choice but to participate, it's called 'economics. ~ Mark Russell
Volpone Satire quotes by Mark Russell
Dear, dear, it only shows that there is nothing diviner about a king than there is about a tramp, after all. He is just a cheap and hollow artificiality when you don't know he is a king. But reveal his quality, and dear me it takes your very breath away to look at him. I reckon we are all fools. Born so, no doubt. ~ Mark Twain
Volpone Satire quotes by Mark Twain
Nothing can be more notorious than the calumnies and invectives with which the wisest measures and most virtuous characters of The United States have been pursued and traduced [By American Newspapers] ~ Thurgood Marshall
Volpone Satire quotes by Thurgood Marshall
He passed the lighter down the table until Descartes held it in one hand while setting the greasy cylinder down on the table. After smoothing it out, Descartes sparked up the lighter. With the lighter drawn near the grease, the aroma of burnt hair filled the board room. ~ Dylan Callens
Volpone Satire quotes by Dylan Callens
When the conversation turns too quickly to films,I see it as a sign of weakness. ~ Herman Koch
Volpone Satire quotes by Herman Koch
An ignorant man who is regarded as knowledgeable by people who are more ignorant than him is still ignorant. ~ Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Volpone Satire quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Praise undeserved, is satire in disguise. ~ Alexander Pope
Volpone Satire quotes by Alexander Pope
An honest politician is an oxymoron. ~ Mark Twain
Volpone Satire quotes by Mark Twain

Volpone Satire quotes by @SaroorIjaz
How am I going to explain to my kids one day that I can't buy them a happy meal because the toy will make them fat? ~ Carroll Bryant
Volpone Satire quotes by Carroll Bryant
There were people who believed their opportunities to live a fulfilled life were hampered by the number of Asians in England, by the existance of a royal family, by the volume of traffic that passed by their house, by the malice of trade unions, by the power of callous employers, by the refusal of the health service to take their condition seriously, by communism, by capitalism, by atheism, by anything, in fact, but their own futile, weak-minded failure to get a fucking grip. ~ Stephen Fry
Volpone Satire quotes by Stephen Fry
How much truth is contained in something can be best determined by making it thoroughly laughable and then watching to see how much joking around it can take. For truth is a matter that can withstand mockery, that is freshened by any ironic gesture directed at it. Whatever cannot withstand satire is false. ~ Peter Sloterdijk
Volpone Satire quotes by Peter Sloterdijk
Incidentally, it's easy to write prescriptions, but difficult to come to an understanding with people. ~ Franz Kafka
Volpone Satire quotes by Franz Kafka
It takes a lot of wind to sail a leaky boat. ~ Tom Morrison
Volpone Satire quotes by Tom Morrison
A man is angry at a libel because it is false, but at a satire because it is true. ~ G.K. Chesterton
Volpone Satire quotes by G.K. Chesterton
The feathered arrow of satire has oft been wet with the heart's blood of its victims. ~ Benjamin Disraeli
Volpone Satire quotes by Benjamin Disraeli
Our town was known for two things--no, three: salted fish, expertly dyed fabrics, and corruption. ~ Angela Elwell Hunt
Volpone Satire quotes by Angela Elwell Hunt
Ellison's Theorem: the further right your position, the less telling your satire. A corollary of which is that you can't lampoon anywhere near where you stand, because you'd annihilate your own troops. ~ Harlan Ellison
Volpone Satire quotes by Harlan Ellison
Satire is fascinating stuff. It's deadly serious, and when politics begin to break down, there is a drift towards satire, because it's the only thing that makes any sense. ~ Ben Nicholson
Volpone Satire quotes by Ben Nicholson
They always loved my sense of humor. There used to be a light switch inside one of the nurseries that was a cutout of Jesus putting his arm around two children on each side of him as he towered above them. The switch was ironically located in the spot of where his penis would have been and I was the first to point this out. Everyone thought it was funny until I started singing the childhood church song "Jesus Loves the Little Children." In fear of being struck by lightning or being involved in a massive pile-up car accident after leaving, their laughing ceased. I still thought it was funny. ~ Chase Brooks
Volpone Satire quotes by Chase Brooks
Satire that is seasonable and just is often more effectual than law or gospel. ~ Josh Billings
Volpone Satire quotes by Josh Billings
I said never mix business with pleasure. They said it was a pleasure doing business with me. ~ Nikhil Sharda
Volpone Satire quotes by Nikhil Sharda
Kennedy didn't beat Nixon. Satire beat Nixon. ~ Chris Rock
Volpone Satire quotes by Chris Rock
American political culture quickly and always outpaces any attempt to satirize it. ~ Glenn Greenwald
Volpone Satire quotes by Glenn Greenwald
Thom pulled nervously at his 'Kings' t-shirt. The Kings are a brutal West African gang that he follows onscreen. Such 'tourist shows', as I understand they are called, have become wildly popular in recent years, as global unrest makes actual travel less popular.

Armoured imaging teams, using tiny remote drone cameras known as 'flies', take the viewer inside the violent, gang-controlled regions of Nigeria and Cameroon. Using a touch screen, viewers (or 'zoners' as they are sometimes called) can follow the action from multiple angles while cheering on their favourite gang. ~ Paul Christensen
Volpone Satire quotes by Paul Christensen
Hell was full so i came BACK ... ~ Jayesh Barche
