It is proved...that things cannot be other than they are, for since everything was made for a purpose, it follows that everything is made for the best purpose.

Voltaire, writer

Which of us is happy in this world? Which of us has his desire? or, having it, is satisfied?

William Makepeace Thackeray, novelist

You can't make up anything anymore. The world itself is a satire. All you're doing is recording it.

Art Buchwald, journalist

Satire is people as they are; romanticism, people as they would like to be; realism, people as they seem with their insides left out.

Dawn Powell, writer

Satire lies about literary men while they live and eulogy lies about them when they die.

Ben Nicholson, artist

Men are more satirical from vanity than from malice.

Francois de la Rochefoucauld, writer

Tomorrow is a satire on today, And shows its weakness.

Edward Young, poet

Lenny Bruce, comedian

Satire is a sort of glass, wherein beholders do generally discover everybody's face but their own.

All satire is blind to the forces liberated by decay. Which is why total decay has absorbed the forces of satire.

Theodor Adorno, philosopher

Unless a love of virtue light the flame, Satire is, more than those he brands, to blame; He hides behind a magisterial air He own offences, and strips others' bare.

William Cowper, poet

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)

Voltaire, writer

I wear my Pen as others do their Sword. To each affronting sot I meet, the word Is Satisfaction: straight to thrusts I go, And pointed satire runs him through and through.

John Oldham, celebrity

I think up until the point when we started in the business, which was in the early '70s, most of the humor was political. The smart humor was political satire.

David Zucker, director

The purpose of satire has been rightly stated as to strip off the veneer of comforting illusion and cosy half truth, and our job, as I see it, is to put it back again!

Michael Flanders, actor

Hollywood is horrible... it's beyond satire.

Yahoo Serious, director

Why should we fear; and what? The laws? They all are armed in virtue's cause; And aiming at the self-same end, Satire is always virtue's friend.

Charles Churchill, poet

Tracey Ullman, comedian

We've managed to keep a spirit of fun, I guess, of urban satire and finding new and odd interesting angles to the ways of life to put on the stage.

Adolph Green, playwright

The Irish and British, they love satire, it's a large part of the culture.

Ben Nicholson, artist

Damn with faint praise, assent with civil leer, And without sneering teach the rest to sneer; Willing to wound, and yet afraid to strike, Just hint a fault, and hesitate dislike; Alike reserv'd to blame, or to commend, A tim'rous foe, and a suspicious friend.

Alexander Pope, poet

Satire is a sort of glass wherein beholders do generally discover everybody's face but their own; which is the chief reason for that kind reception it meets with in the world, and that so very few are offended with it.

Jonathan Swift, writer

The British ballads became a new kind of form in their hand. And out of them came the blues, a new kind of song of commentary and satire, a song form which, after all, has become the main musical form of the whole human species.

Alan Lomax, writer

Satire is what closes on Saturday night.

George S. Kaufman, dramatist

The modern form of things had begun to appeal to me, also (as material for satire) politics, and the lives of the great and little, high up in the social scale.

Laurence Housman, playwright

Conventional show-biz savvy held that Americans hated to be the objects of satire.

Chris Morris, critic

Satire doesn't effect change.

P. J. O'Rourke, comedian

Satire, whether it be satire or not, everything has to have boundaries.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan, president

The satirist who writes nothing but satire should write but little - or it will seem that his satire springs rather from his own caustic nature than from the sins of the world in which he lives.

Anthony Trollope, author

The journey of your first movie is not just beyond belief it can be truly beyond satire.

Yahoo Serious, director

It seems like there's a lot of people who just do not understand satire. They think it's weird. There's people who just don't understand you portray something or just explore a character, it means you're condoning it, saying this is the way to live.

Mike Judge, producer
