„The surest way to make a monkey of a man is to quote him.“

— Robert Benchley, My Ten Years in a Quandary and How They Grew
Context: The surest way to make a monkey of a man is to quote him. That remark in itself wouldn’t make any sense if quoted as it stands. "Quick Quotations" in My Ten Years in a Quandary and How They Grew (1936)

„The English language may hold a more disagreeable combination of words than "The doctor will see you now."“

— Robert Benchley
Context: The English language may hold a more disagreeable combination of words than "The doctor will see you now." I am willing to concede something to the phrase "Have you anything to say before the current is turned on?" That may be worse for the moment, but it doesn't last so long. For continued, unmitigating depression, I know nothing to equal "The doctor will see you now." But I'm not narrow-minded about it. I'm willing to consider other possibilities. "The Tooth, the Whole Tooth, and Nothing but the Tooth", in Love Conquers All (1922)

„Nine-tenths of the value of a sense of humor in writing is not in the things it makes one write but in the things it keeps one from writing.“

— Robert Benchley
Context: Nine-tenths of the value of a sense of humor in writing is not in the things it makes one write but in the things it keeps one from writing. It is especially valuable in this respect in serious writing, and no one without a sense of humor should ever write seriously. For without knowing what is funny, one is constantly in danger of being funny without knowing it. LIFE magazine (8 March 1929)

„There may be said to be two classes of people in the world; those who constantly divide the people of the world into two classes, and those who do not.“

— Robert Benchley
Context: There may be said to be two classes of people in the world; those who constantly divide the people of the world into two classes, and those who do not. Both classes are extremely unpleasant to meet socially, leaving practically no one in the world whom one cares very much to know. Vanity Fair (February 1920)

„A dog teaches a boy fidelity, perseverance, and to turn around three times before lying down.“

— Robert Benchley
"Your Boy and His Dog," Liberty magazine, (30 July 1932) Also published in [http://books.google.com/books?id=1-gHw9bqQqAC&q=%22A+dog+teaches+a+boy+fidelity+perseverance+and+to+turn+around+three+times+before+lying+down%22&pg=PA94#v=onepage Chips Off the Old Benchley] (1949)
