Henry Louis Mencken quotes

American humorous journalist, and critic who influenced US fiction through the 1920s, 1880-1956

Love is the triumph of imagination over intelligence.


Unquestionably, there is progress. The average American now pays out twice as much in taxes as he formerly got in wages.


For every complex problem, there is a solution that is simple, neat, and wrong.


Bachelors know more about women than married men; if they didn't they'd be married too.


And I believe it is better to know than to be ignorant.


Science, at bottom, is really anti-intellectual. It always distrusts pure reason, and demands the production of objective fact.


For every problem there is a solution which is simple, clean and wrong.


The difference between a moral man and a man of honor is that the latter regrets a discreditable act, even when it has worked and he has not been caught.


Any man who afflicts the human race with ideas must be prepared to see them misunderstood.


For it is mutual trust, even more than mutual interest that holds human associations together. Our friends seldom profit us but they make us feel safe... Marriage is a scheme to accomplish exactly that same end.
