If you strike upon a thought that baffles you, break off from that entanglement and try another, so shall your wits be fresh to start again.
Wit is the lowest form of humor.
So vast is art, so narrow human wit.
There is a certain majesty in simplicity which is far above all the quaintness of wit.
Of Manners gentle, of Affections mild; In Wit a man; Simplicity, a child.
One science only will one genius fit; so vast is art, so narrow human wit.
Brevity is the soul of wit.
A wit with dunces, and a dunce with wits.
Wit is educated insolence.
