Henry Louis Mencken quotes

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

School days, I believe, are the unhappiest in the whole span of human existence.


The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false face for the urge to rule it.


The older I grow the more I distrust the familiar doctrine that age brings wisdom.


The comfortable estate of widowhood is the only hope that keeps up a wife's spirits.


School days are the unhappiest in the whole span if human existence. They are full of dull, unintelligible tasks, new and unpleasant ordinances, with brutal violations of common sense and common decency.


One horse-laugh is worth ten thousand syllogisms. It is not only more effective; it is also vastly more intelligent.


Old age ain't no place for sissies.


I'm an excellent housekeeper. Every time I get a divorce, I keep the house.


If you want peace, work for justice.


Democracy is also a form of worship. It is the worship of Jackals by Jackasses.
