Jerome Jerome

Jerome Jerome

was an English writer and humorist, best known for the humorous travelogue Three Men in a Boat.
If a man stopped me in the street and demanded of me my watch, I should refuse to give it to him. If he threatened to take it by force, I feel I should, though not a fighting man, do my best to protect it. If, on the other hand, he should assert his intention of trying to obtain it by means of an action in any court of law, I should take it out of my pocket and hand it to him, and think I had got off cheaply.More Jerome Jerome quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If you are foolish enough to be contented, don't show it, but grumble with the rest; and if you can do with a little, ask for a great deal. Because if you don't you won't get any.More Jerome Jerome quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I did not intend to write a funny book, at first. I did not know I was a humorist. I have never been sure about it. In the middle ages, I should probably have gone about preaching and got myself burnt or hanged.More Jerome Jerome quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is so pleasant to come across people more stupid than ourselves. We love them at once for being so.More Jerome Jerome quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
So, eventually, he made one final arrangement with himself, which he has religiously held to ever since, and that was to count each fish that he caught as ten, and to assume ten to begin with. For example, if he did not catch any fish at all, then he said he had caught ten fish - you could never catch less than ten fish by his system; that was the foundation of it. Then, if by any chance he really did catch one fish, he called it twenty, while two fish would count thirty, three forty, and so on.More Jerome Jerome quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
