A good pun may be admitted among the smaller excellencies of lively conversation. — James Boswell

Pun Quotes By Harriet Hosmer

We do not claim that punning is legitimate wit. Wit consists in combination of ideas, punning in combination of words only. We wonder at the one, but we laugh at the drollery of the other - as the world goes a pun is regarded as an imponderable commodity, all know the rank it holds in the order of pure intellect. — Harriet Hosmer

Pun Quotes By Seanan McGuire

We're not out of the woods yet, people," I said, and grimaced, my eyes cheating toward the trees growing on all sides. "No pun intended. Sloane, were you being serious when you said that most of that was Demi's blood? Because I'm not quite ready to condone beating her to death." "She got a nosebleed," said Sloane, reaching forward and taking my hand in hers. Her fingers left red stains on my skin. "Sure, I had to punch her four or five times to make that happen, but nosebleeds are a normal part of being a traitorous bitch who goes over to the dark side at the first sign of trouble. — Seanan McGuire

Pun Quotes By Big Pun

You should have an anniversary to acknowledge the way I work the ebonics. — Big Pun

Pun Quotes By Joss Stirling

You're a bright girl, aren't you? No pun intended. — Joss Stirling

Pun Quotes By Frank E. Gaebelein

The Greek makes the distinction between petros and petra simply because it is trying to preserve the pun, and in Greek the feminine petra could not very well serve as a masculine name. — Frank E. Gaebelein

Pun Quotes By Janisse Ray

The moral of the story, Son," Pun would say, "is Don't take more on your heart than you can shake off on your heels."
Of all lessons, that one I never learned and I hope I never do. My heart daily grows new foliage, always adding people, picking up new heartaches like a wool coat collects cockleburs and beggar's-lice seeds. It gets fuller and fuller as I walk slow as a sloth, carrying all the pain Pun and Frank and so many others tried to walk from. Especially the pain of the lost forest. Sometimes there is no leaving, no looking westward for another promised land. We have to nail our shoes to the kitchen floor and unload the burden of our heart. We have to set to the task of repairing the damage done by and to us. — Janisse Ray

Pun Quotes By Groucho Marx

Heifer cow is better than none, but this is no time for puns — Groucho Marx

Pun Quotes By Anne Lamott

Holiness has most often been revealed to me in the exquisite pun of the first syllable, in holes- in not enough help, in brokenness, mess. High holy places, with ethereal sounds and stained glass, can massage my illusion of holiness, but in holes and lostness I can pick up the light of small ordinary progress, newly made moments flecked like pepper into the slog and the disruptions. — Anne Lamott

Pun Quotes By G.K. Chesterton

The old Monophysite sect declared that Christ had only the one divine nature. The new Monophysite sect declares that He had only the one human nature. But it is not a pun or a trick, but a truth, to say that the Monophysite is by nature monotonous. — G.K. Chesterton

Pun Quotes By Patrick O'Brian

He that would make a pun would pick a pocket. — Patrick O'Brian

Pun Quotes By Elle Kennedy

But common sense comes too late, because Logan is now moving away from the counter and marching in my direction.

"Hey, gorgeous." He slides in the seat across from me and places a chocolate-chip muffin on the table. "I got you a muffin."

Damn it, I guess he'd noticed me right when he'd walked in.

"Why?" I ask in suspicion, and without saying hi.

"'Cause I wanted to get you something, and you already have coffee. Ergo, muffin."

I raise one eyebrow. "Are you trying to buy your way into my good graces?"

"Yup. And excellent pun, by the way."

"I wasn't punning. My name just happens to be a homonym."

His blue eyes gleam as he downright smolders at me. "I love it when you talk homonyms to me."

"Uh-huh. — Elle Kennedy

Pun Quotes By Bella Andre

'Ha-ha,' she said, but Travis refused to go along with the pun.

His eyes were deep green and so full of love that tears sprang to Lily's eyes. 'Me either. — Bella Andre

Pun Quotes By Lexi George

You've got to be kidding. No self-respecting demon would be caught undead here. Heck, we're so podunk we don't even have a Burger Doodle."
"Demons find this Burger Doodle attractive?"
"Nah, if I had to guess, I'd say they're more into soul food." She clapped her hands over her mouth. "Oh, God, I made a pun. Slap me. — Lexi George

Pun Quotes By Michael Scott

Saint-Germain shook his head. "Ordering breakfast. I'm famished." He jerked his thumb back in the direction of the Eiffel Tower, which was still erupting fireworks. "Creating something like that- if you pardon the pun- burns a lot of calories. — Michael Scott

Pun Quotes By Teddy Thompson

I was obsessed with country music when I was a kid, and it's definitely had a huge influence on the way I write songs. I was always attracted to songs that had a brilliant pun or a clever turn of phrase, but came from a dark, bitter place. As a writer, I've always gravitated towards that feeling. — Teddy Thompson

Pun Quotes By Ambrose Bierce

Pun: A form of wit, to which wise men stoop and fools aspire — Ambrose Bierce

Pun Quotes By Winston S. Churchill

Safari, so goody. — Winston S. Churchill

Pun Quotes By Grace Gealey

Even though there will be times when I'll need to protect myself - there will definitely be times when I'll have to put up my guard just to monitor what comes in and out of my life - there's a grace there ... no pun intended! — Grace Gealey

Pun Quotes By Nassim Nicholas Taleb

We live to produce information, or improve on it. Nietzsche had the Latin pun aut liberi, aut libri - either children or books, both information that caries through the centuries ... I am here to die a heroic death for the sake of the collective, to produce offspring (and prepare them for life and provide for them), or eventually, books, - my information, that is, my genes, the anti-fragile in me, should be the ones seeking immortality, not me. Then say goodbye, have a nice funeral in St. Sergius (Mar Sarkis) in Amioun, and, as the French say, place aux autres - make room for others (p. 370-371). — Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Pun Quotes By Gilbert K. Chesterton

Coincidence is a spiritual pun. — Gilbert K. Chesterton

Pun Quotes By Ben Thompson

Another badass Gurkha in recent memory was Sergeant Dipprasad Pun of the Royal Gurkha Rifles. In 2010, while serving as the lone on-duty guard patrolling a small one-room outpost on the edge of the Afghan province of Helmand, Pun was suddenly ambushed by somewhere between fifteen and thirty Taliban warriors armed with RPGs and assault rifles. During his Ultimate Mega Gurkha Freakout Limit Break Mode, the five-foot-seven-inch sergeant fired off four hundred rounds of machine gun ammunition (every bullet he had), chucked seventeen grenades, detonated a remote mine, and then took an enemy soldier down by chucking a twenty-pound machine gun tripod into the dude's face. — Ben Thompson

Pun Quotes By John Barrowman

There's a lot of me in Captain Jack and there's a lot of Captain Jack in me. And there is no pun intended. — John Barrowman

Pun Quotes By Laurel Ulen Curtis

I was confident, but I still loved a good stroking. Pun one hundred percent abso-fucking-lutely intended. — Laurel Ulen Curtis

Pun Quotes By P.C. Cast

That's exactly why I never liked King Arthur's Guinevere. She screws up (pardon the pun), sleeps with her husband's best friend, causes the fall of a kingdom, then she doesn't have the guts to make at least one man happy, so she joins a friggin nunnery and esacpes from all of her problems, leaving everyone around her in a slavering mess. How incredibly spineless. — P.C. Cast

Pun Quotes By Alexis Hall

My dominant (no pun intended) discourse seems to be needy as fuck. — Alexis Hall

Pun Quotes By John Davidson

It is the observer of the pun that makes it, my dear Brumm. Of course, when the word is distorted, as in Evilution, the most preoccupied notice it, but in this instance which you try to fasten upon me the crime is yours. There is nothing more contrary to the Evolutionary will than puns. Bloodshed and desolation follow in their wake. Their English heyday, which was in the reign of James I, caused the great civil war; in France they flourished most rankly under Louis XV, and produced the French Revolution. I have considered puns, and apart altogether from their hateful effect, as shown in history, it is certain that they are quite unevolutionary, because I, the fittest of men, am unable to make them. You will consult your own welfare, and that of the nation, Brougham, by refraining in future. — John Davidson

Pun Quotes By Timothy B. Schmit

Actually touring solo is a little more difficult. It's more demanding than being under the "wing" of the band, no pun intended. It's more intimidating to sing in front of smaller crowds. The buck stops with me. — Timothy B. Schmit

Pun Quotes By Robert Anton Wilson

See you when tea is hot. — Robert Anton Wilson

Pun Quotes By Diana Pavlac Glyer

As Tolkien points out, the name is "a pleasantly ingenious pun," referring to those who "dabble in ink." It also suggests people "with vague or half-formed intimations and ideas. — Diana Pavlac Glyer

Pun Quotes By Big Pun

I blow my own mind like Nirvana, and go the whole nine like Madonna. — Big Pun

Pun Quotes By Corri Wilson

The man [Donald Trump] seems to out-trump himself - no pun intended - every time he speaks in his bid to win the Republican nomination. — Corri Wilson

Pun Quotes By Margaret Atwood

Would I laugh?"
"Matter of fact, you would," says Zeb. "Heart like shale. What you need is a good fracking. — Margaret Atwood

Pun Quotes By Adi Alsaid

Human beings are more or less formulas. Pun intended. We are not any one thing that is mathematically provable. We are more or less than we are anything. We are more or less kind, or more or less not. More or less selfish, happy, wise, lonely. — Adi Alsaid

Pun Quotes By Stephenie Meyer

It is. If it's too late for me ... Well, I'll be damned - no pun intended - if I'll let them keep you out, too. — Stephenie Meyer

Pun Quotes By Chris Howard

Diddley dee I have got to pee — Chris Howard

Pun Quotes By Brian Spellman

Every swamp has a silted lining. — Brian Spellman

Pun Quotes By Patrick Rothfuss

Do you know why they call this place the Rookery?" Elodin asked. I shook my head.
"Because it's where you go if you're a-ravin'." He smiled a wild smile. He laughed a terrible laugh. — Patrick Rothfuss

Pun Quotes By Roy Blount Jr.

According to that book, only one Marx contributed an unforgotten pun to the Round Tablers' vaunted word games. It wasn't Groucho, who must have been furious. Nor was it Harpo, who for all we know sat at the table naked. Nor was it Chico, who had more dangerous games elsewhere. It was Gummo. Evidently Gummo had a seat at that table at least once, and he made it count. Everybody knows that Dorothy Parker, challenged to make a sentence with the word horticulture, quipped as follows: "You can lead a horticulture, but you can't make her think." But who knew that Gummo, taking on euphoria, came up with this: LEFT TO RIGHT: Harpo, Zeppo, Chico, Groucho, and Gummo, 1957. "Go outside and play," Minnie told the brothers. "Which ones?" they asked. And she said: "Euphoria."* — Roy Blount Jr.

Pun Quotes By Big Pun

Strip those clowns down to nudity, shove the chrome where they doo doo be. — Big Pun

Pun Quotes By Big Pun

Scholars, street knowledge, Carter kids stuck in the projects. — Big Pun

Pun Quotes By Louis Untermeyer

Every poet knows the pun is Pierian, that it springs from the same soil as the Muse?a matching and shifting of vowels and consonants, an adroit assonance sometimes derided as jackassonance. — Louis Untermeyer

Pun Quotes By Ana Claudia Antunes

What happened when the Verb asked the noun to conjugate? She said "no-no!", forgot the "o" and decided to become a nun! — Ana Claudia Antunes

Pun Quotes By Big Pun

Let me do five of those, and then some slower ones for those kids that can't understand what I'm sayin. — Big Pun

Pun Quotes By Paul Auster

Once we acquired the power to destroy ourselves, the very notion of human life had been altered; even the air we breathed was contaminated with the stench of death. Sachs was hardly the first person to come up with this idea, but considering what happened to him nine days ago, there's a certain eeriness to the obsession, as if it were a kind of deadly pun, a mixed-up word that took root inside him and proliferated beyond his control. — Paul Auster

Pun Quotes By Charles Lamb

I never knew an enemy to puns who was not an ill-natured man. — Charles Lamb

Pun Quotes By A. J. Jacobs

Images are taking over, and writers are a dying breed. The Norman Mailers of today are reduced to writing pun-filled captions for paparazzi photos. Blogs
which were threatening enough to professional writers
are being replaced by video blogs. We writers need to embraced the Second Commandment as our rallying cry for the importance of words. In a literally biblical world, all publications would look like the front page of the Wall Street Journal. Or the way it used to look, anyway. — A. J. Jacobs

Pun Quotes By Elizabeth A. Reeves

Hmm, I wondered as I knocked on Stephan's door, would you call a mischievous young ghoul? A ghouligan? I snorted at my own pun. I cracked myself up. — Elizabeth A. Reeves

Pun Quotes By Hannah Cowley

It requires genius to make a good pun - some men of bright parts can't reach it. — Hannah Cowley

Pun Quotes By Richelle Mead

There must have been some mistake. It took me a while to get a flight here, so I can see why you would have appointed a community lawyer to fill in." "Community lawyer!" Damon's face grew red with indignation. "I'm one of the most renowned lawyers among American Moroi." "Renowned, community." Abe shrugged and leaned back on his heals. "I don't judge. No pun intended."
Mead, Richelle (2010-05-18). Spirit Bound: A Vampire Academy Novel (p. 475). Penguin Young Readers Group. Kindle Edition. — Richelle Mead

Pun Quotes By Big Pun

Power just makes you reject destiny and devour your fate. — Big Pun

Pun Quotes By James Joyce

My puns are not trivial. They are quadrivial — James Joyce

Pun Quotes By Tony Vigorito

Thus was their relationship born on the swift kiss of a pun. Neither suspected what the other would become to each of them. Like phrases running wild in the Logos, they knew neither who nor by what mechanism nor for what reason they were whistled for (if they understood that they were whistled for at all). They were simply compelled to come together. Sophia was the question, and Blip was the answer. And vice versa. — Tony Vigorito

Pun Quotes By Karin Slaughter

I love puns. I've been known to turn the car around just to take advantage of a good pun situation. It really is the highest form of humor. — Karin Slaughter

Pun Quotes By Jordan Spieth

Having inched closer and accomplished some of my major goals in the sport of golf, no pun intended, why not work as hard as I can to attain those goals if I'm already feeling like I'm playing well and getting more and more comfortable. — Jordan Spieth

Pun Quotes By Maximus Freeman

While sitting on the hopper, in a blissful state of belieflessness, the Universe sent me this silly pun: Arrogant know-it-alls actually know nothing,
while humble know-nothings seem to know everything... — Maximus Freeman

Pun Quotes By Abigail Roux

Hey," Nick grunted. "Marriage is just a word for some people, but for others it's a fucking sentence, okay?"
Zane was holding his side. "Oh my God, marriage puns! Oh my God ... "
Nick was trying not to grin, but he finally couldn't help himself. "Once we established I was the victim, then we had to find a girl with a ring on her finger to figure out which one I'd fucking married."
Ty leaned against Zane's arm, laughing so hard he could no longer sit up straight. "The look on his face!"
"He made a marriage pun," Zane gasped. — Abigail Roux

Pun Quotes By Martin Gore

God knows why - no pun intended - but every time I write a song, I feel a need to touch on religion. — Martin Gore

Pun Quotes By Big Pun

My trigger got no heart. — Big Pun

Pun Quotes By Antonio Damasio

There's something that intervenes and is very important which has to do with value. Value in the true biological sense, which is that contrary to what many people seem to think, taking it at face value - sorry for the pun - we do not give the same amount of emotional significance to every event. — Antonio Damasio

Pun Quotes By Kelly Carlson

'Nip/Tuck' did make me very comfortable in my own skin, no pun intended. I had to be stripped down a lot, and you're kind of in front of the whole world, and it teaches you to accept yourself and be comfortable with yourself real quickly. — Kelly Carlson

Pun Quotes By Richelle Mead

Do what? Come up with a clever pun referencing Jerome's demonic status? The truth is, I usually keep a stash of them on hand and - — Richelle Mead

Pun Quotes By Chang-rae Lee

She believed that displays of emotion signaled a certain failure between people. The only person who could upset her, make her cry or laugh in the open, was my father. He could always unsettle her face with a stern admonition or an old joke or pun in Korean. Otherwise, I thought she possessed the most exquisite control over the muscles of her face. She seemed to have the subtle power of inflection over them, the way a tongue can move air. — Chang-rae Lee

Pun Quotes By William Shenstone

I am thankful that my name in obnoxious to no pun. — William Shenstone

Pun Quotes By Zion Lights

If you're reading this book, you're probably already interested in being green, and almost certainly already a parent (or about to become one), so I won't trouble too much with the semantics of what 'being green' means, but just say that doing the 'green' thing here means being as environmentally friendly as possible, while considering your child's everyday personal health as well, and taking into account social-justice issues to some degree, because no-one is an island and humans and animals are part of the environment too. Even if you're new to this, it's entirely
possible, with a little helping hand, to form new, green lifestyle habits, so long as you're prepared to take baby steps to begin with (and pardon the pun). — Zion Lights

Pun Quotes By Carrie Harris

Everyone in the room stared at me like they expected me to grow fangs and sparkle. — Carrie Harris

Pun Quotes By Lucy Keating

Pick a side, Max. I feel like I'm living through some vampire romance where you can't be near me because my blood smells delicious. — Lucy Keating

Pun Quotes By Bob Dylan

I never read Freud. I've never been attracted to anything he has said, and I think he's started a lot of nonsense with psychiatry and that business. I don't think psychiatry can help or has helped anybody. I think it's a big fraud (pun not intended) on the public. — Bob Dylan

Pun Quotes By Verne Troyer

In Men in Black, it was a very small character, no pun intended. — Verne Troyer

Pun Quotes By Tim Vine

If you compulsively pun you are called a paronomasiac. — Tim Vine

Pun Quotes By Michael Walton

I think; therefore, I am above average. — Michael Walton

Pun Quotes By Aniruddha Sastikar

Puns are just another form of sarcasm, which may or may not make you - smile, giggle, or laugh. — Aniruddha Sastikar

Pun Quotes By Leviak B. Kelly

They talk about human rights until the rights include things they personally do not like as alternatives. There needs to be Frank discussions. And Shirley can join too because the pun works. The ideas of human beings of all demeanor and venues are at stake here. — Leviak B. Kelly

Pun Quotes By Stephen King

Of course they had more chains on him than Scrooge saw on Marley's ghost, but he could have kicked up dickens if he'd wanted. That's a pun, son. — Stephen King

Pun Quotes By Lewis Carroll

It's a pun!' the King added in an offended tone, and everybody laughed, 'Let the jury consider their verdict,' the King said, for about the twentieth time that day. — Lewis Carroll

Pun Quotes By Scott Blagden

I know my rights."
"And I know you're wrong. — Scott Blagden

That reckless and abandoned one
Who stoops to perpetrate a pun. — Lewis Carroll

Pun Quotes By Big Pun

I'd rather sell reefer than do pizza delivery. — Big Pun

Pun Quotes By Heather Lyons

It's like watching a car wreck, no pun intended. I know what's going to happen, and as much as I want to look away, I can't. It's almost as if I have to see just how ineffective I was in Karl's Hummer that day.

Lyons, Heather (2012-08-25). A Matter of Fate (Fate Series Book 1) (p. 233). Cerulean Books. Kindle Edition. — Heather Lyons

Pun Quotes By Big Pun

Pun Quotes By Corrine Jackson

A first edition of Peter Pan appeared gift-wrapped on my bed - Lucy admitted that Asher had drafted her to help deliver that present. — Corrine Jackson

Pun Quotes By Kevin Hearne

Heh. I think you made your point, Atticus.
Gods Below, Oberon, that was horrendous! You just violated the Schwarzenegger Pun Reduction Treaty of 2010.
What? No, that didn't qualify!
Yes, it did. Any pun related to a weapon's destructive capabilities or final disposition of a victim's body is a Schwarzenegger pun, by definition. That's negative twenty sausages according to the sanctions outlined in Section Four, Paragraph Two.
My hound whined. No! Not twenty sausages! Twenty succulent sausages I'll never snarf? You can't do that - it's cruelty to animals!
You can't argue with this. Your pawprint is on the treaty, and you agreed that Schwarzenegger puns are heinous abominations of language that deserve food-related punishments for purposes of correction and deterrence.
Auggh! I still say it's your fault for renting Commando in the first place! You started it! — Kevin Hearne
