Everyone’s got something to say, but only those who say it wisely, humorously, and tersely are likely to be celebrated and remembered for their wit. Ultimate Wit has gathered thousands of the most quotable witticisms ever scribbled or said aloud.
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.

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:
“A college becomes a university when the faculty loses interest in the students.”

“I think, therefore I’m single”
“He has all the virtues I dislike and none of the vices I admire.”
