Taken from every source imaginable, these quotes encompass almost every subject, including food; education; business and money; love, sex, marriage, men, and women; science; politics; and so much more. From classic witticisms by Mark Twain, S. J. Perelman, and Dorothy Parker to surprising bon mots by Woodrow Wilson, Queen Victoria, and Richard Feynman, Ultimate Wit will give you reasons to laugh out loud and think deep thoughts.

Ulimate Wit contains thousands of unbeatable quips. Here are a few of them:
