Famous quotes containing the word amusing:

    ... if a person is to be unconventional, he must be amusing or he is intolerable: for, in the nature of the case, he guarantees you nothing but amusement. He does not guarantee you any of the little amenities by which society has assured itself that, if it must go to sleep, it will at least sleep in a comfortable chair.
    Katharine Fullerton Gerould (1879–1944)

    I enjoyed the courtroom as just another stage—but not so amusing as Broadway.
    Mae West (1892–1980)

    Only amateurs say that they write for their own amusement. Writing is not an amusing occupation. It is a combination of ditch-digging, mountain-climbing, treadmill and childbirth. Writing may be interesting, absorbing, exhilirating, racking, relieving. But amusing? Never!
    Edna Ferber (1887–1968)
