Literary Insults 2 by Warren Bull

Literary Insults 2 by Warren Bull

Dorothy Parker can also be the inspiration for insults of quality:

"If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to."

"Men don't like nobility in a woman. Not any men. I suppose it is because the men like to have the copyrights on nobility—if there is going to be anything like that in a relationship."

"That woman speaks eighteen languages, and can't say 'no' in any of them."


"You can lead a horticulture, but you can't make her think."

This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force."

"She runs the gamut of emotions from A to B."


"If all the young ladies who attended the Yale prom were laid end to end, no one would be the least surprised."

To a man she found annoying: "With the crown of thorns I wear, why should I worry about a little prick like you?"

When an actress said to her, “I loved your book. Who wrote it for you?”
Dorothy replied, “Oh, thank you. Who read it to you?”

On hearing Calvin Coolidge had died, Dorothy Parker remarked, “How can they tell?”
