Quotable Literary Quotes: P.G. Wodehouse

image credit

P.G. Wodehouse is one of my favorite humorist authors; always sure to make me chuckle when I can really use good laugh. This is one of those seasons. His quotes are equal parts insightful and funny. Here are just a few:

~”Woman is the unfathomable, incalculable mystery, the problem that we men can never hope to solve.”

~“And she’s got brains enough for two, which is the exact quantity the girl who marries you will need.”

~“The voice of Love seemed to call to me, but it was a wrong number.”

~“He had just about enough intelligence to open his mouth when he wanted to eat, but certainly no more.”

That last one gets me every time! Happy Tuesday.

    Clearly, P.G. Wodehouse just didn’t understand female psychology that well; or as we moderns call it, Game. 😉

    I don’t find women mysterious; neither do most of the manosphere. That ship has long sailed away! 🙂

    I adore Wodehouse. Yes Jeeves and Wooster, but also Ukeridge, Lord Emsworth, Psmith, Mr. Mulliner, The Oldest Member, and all of the marvelous secondary characters. Every page of Wodehouse is a Bartlett’s of humorous quotations.

    …Oh yes–whenever I am in early labor, I find that Wodehouse is exactly the right author to distract me from the pain. Not as good as an epidural, but considerably funnier.

    @ Heidi:

    I like Wodehouse, and I agree he’s top notch funny, but I don’t know if he could distract me from labor pains, LOL!!!

    I hope all is well with you and your new little one. 🙂
