The essence of all jokes, of all comedy, seems to be an honest or
well intended halfness; a non performance of that which is
pretended to be performed, at the same time that one is giving
loud pledges of performance. The balking of the intellect,
is comedy and it announces itself in the pleasant spasms we call laughter.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 – 1882)

It’s silly to go on pretending that under the skin we are all brothers.
The truth is more likely that under the skin we are all cannibals
assassins, traitors, liars, hypocrites, poltroons.
Henry Miller (1891 – 1980)

The mind can assert anything and pretend it has proved it.
My beliefs I test on my body, on my intuitional consciousness,
and when I get a response there, then I accept.
D. H. Lawrence (1885 – 1930)

In our society those who are in reality superior in intelligence
can be accepted by their fellows only if they pretend they are not.
Marya Mannes

To know that you do not know is the best.
To pretend to know when you do not know is a disease.
Lao-tzu (604 BC – 531 BC), The Way of Lao-tzu

A flatterer is a friend who is your inferior, or pretends to be so.
Aristotle (384 BC – 322 BC)

I am an agnostic; I do not pretend to know what many ignorant men are sure of.
Clarence Darrow (1857 – 1938)

The greatest way to live with honor in this world is to be what we pretend to be.
Socrates (469 BC – 399 BC)

Popularity comes from allowing yourself to be bored by people while pretending to enjoy it.
Karol Newlin

Never pretend to a love which you do not actually feel, for love is not ours to command.
Alan Watts

We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful what we pretend to be.
Kurt Vonnegut (1922 – 2007), Mother Night

Most people have seen worse things in private than they pretend to be shocked at in public.
Edgar Watson Howe (1853 – 1937)

You can pretend to be serious; you can’t pretend to be witty.
Sacha Guitry (1885 – 1957)

If there is one thing worse than being an ugly duckling in a house of swans,
it’s having the swans pretend there’s no difference.
Teena Booth, Falling From Fire
