Author of famous novels like ‘Three Men in a Boat’, Jerome K. Jerome was known for his witty writing. In his lifetime he has written numerous novels, short stories and plays. In continuation to the humorous quotes from P. G. Wodehouse and George Carlin, I decided to list down ten of the most funny quotes by Jerome K. Jerome.
"I like work; it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours."
"But who wants to be foretold the weather? It is bad enough when it comes, without our having the misery of knowing about it beforehand."
"Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses."
"People who have tried it, tell me that a clear conscience makes you very happy and contented; but a full stomach does the business quite as well, and is cheaper, and more easily obtained."
"What I am looking for is a blessing not in disguise."
"I plodded conscientiously through the twenty-six letters, and the only malady I could conclude I had not got was housemaid's knee."
"If he were a man of strong mind, it only gave him fits; but a person of mere average intellect it usually sent mad."
"I can't sit still and see another man slaving and working. I want to get up and superintend, and walk round with my hands in my pockets, and tell him what to do. It is my energetic nature. I can't help it."
"It is so pleasant to come across people more stupid than ourselves. We love them at once for being so."
"I don't know why it should be, I am sure; but the sight of another man asleep in bed when I am up, maddens me."
