When a person can no longer laugh at himself, it is time for others to laugh at him.

Thomas Szasz

Ridicule has always been the enemy of enthusiasm, and the only worthy opponent to ridicule is success.

We grow tired of everything but turning others into ridicule, and congratulating ourselves on their defects.

Mockery is often the result of a poverty of wit.

Ridicule often checks what is absurd, and fully as often smothers that which is noble.

Walter Scott

Ridicule dishonors a man more than dishonor does.

Francois de la Rochefoucauld

Ridicule is a weak weapon when pointed at a strong mind; but common people are cowards and dread an empty laugh.

I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: Oh Lord, make my enemies ridiculous. And God granted it. (Letter to Étienne Noël Damilaville, May 16, 1767)


One cannot be always laughing at a man without now and then stumbling on something witty.

Jane Austen

I believe they talked of me, for they laughed consumedly.

George Farquhar

No God and no religion can survive ridicule. No political church, no nobility, no royalty or other fraud, can face ridicule in a fair field, and live.

Mark Twain

Oh that wisdom was half as zealous for converts as ridicule.

Franz Grillparzer

Resort is had to ridicule only when reason is against us.

Thomas Jefferson

The truth of our faith becomes a matter of ridicule among the infidels if any Catholic, not gifted with the necessary scientific learning, presents as dogma what scientific scrutiny shows to be false.

Thomas Aquinas

I think the hardest part about being a teenager is dealing with other teenagers - the criticism and the ridicule, the gossip and rumors.

Beverley Mitchell

You know, I think it's one of those cases where the situation really does dictate your level of ridicule.

Michael McKean

You see, I'd not a very good place here; the fellows looked on me as a sort of special object of ridicule, on account of the hat and cane, walk, and so on, though I thought I'd got over that by this time.

Richard H. Davis

It rolls off my back. Ridicule doesn't mean anything - even from people you're supposed to wear knee pads around, like the scientific community.

Dwight Schultz

I know there are reporters who ridicule pundits.

Daniel Okrent

Over the last decade, at considerable cost to me in money and effort, confronted with ridicule and intimidation, I have brought more than a dozen lawsuits challenging the corruption in the election process in Tennessee.

John Jay Hooker

I'm a geophysicist and all my earth science books when I was a student, I had to give the wrong answer to get an A. We used to ridicule continental drift. It was something we laughed at. We learned of Marshall Kay's geosynclinal cycle, which is a bunch of crap.

Robert Ballard

I have been the subject of ridicule. People talk about me and they don't know me and this is an opportunity to tell my story... to have my voice and to set the record straight.

Amber Frey

Every great movement must experience three stages ridicule, discussion, adoption.


It is commonly said that ridicule is the best test of truth; for that it will not stick where it is not just. I deny it. A truth learned in a certain light, and attacked in certain words, by men of wit and humor, may, and often does, become ridiculous, at least so far, that the truth is only remembered and repeated for the sake of the ridicule.

Lord Chesterfield

No great movement designed to change the world can bear to be laughed at or belittled. Mockery is a rust that corrodes all it touches.

Milan Kundera

There is no character, howsoever good and fine, but it can be destroyed by ridicule, howsoever poor and witless. Observe the ass, for instance: his character is about perfect, he is the choicest spirit among all the humbler animals, yet see what ridicule has brought him to. Instead of feeling complimented when we are called an ass, we are left in doubt.

Mark Twain

In junior high school, I was an object of pure ridicule for my dress, withdrawal, and asocial manner. Dozens of times, I saw individuals laugh and smile more in ten to fifteen minutes than I did in all my life up to then.

Arthur Bremer

When did it something of shame or ridicule to be a self-made man in America?

Glenn Beck

Ridicule is the tribute paid to the genius by the mediocrities.

Oscar Wilde

One does not lash hat lies at a distance. The foibles that we ridicule must at least be a little bit our own. Only then will the work be a part of our own flesh. The garden must be weeded.

Paul Klee
