«Democracy means government by discussion, but it is only effective if you can stop people talking.»
«Any discussion of the problems of being funny in America will not make sense unless we substitute the word wit for humor.

He stays behind the flock, letting the most nimble go out ahead, whereupon the others follow, not realizing that all along they are being directed from behind.»
