Sneeze Quotes



“When God sneezed, I didn't know what to say” ~ Henry Youngman (English born American Comedian and Violinist, 1906-1998)

 “I used to wake up at 4 A.M. and start sneezing, sometimes for five hours. I tried to find out what sort of allergy I had but finally came to the conclusion that it must be an allergy to consciousness.” ~ James Thurber (American Writer, 1894-1961)

"Sneezing absorbs all the functions of the soul just as much as the [sexual] act, but we do not draw from it the same conclusions against the greatness of man, because it is involuntary; although we bring it about, we do so involuntarily. It is not for the sake of the thing in itself but for another end, and is therefore not a sign of man's weakness, or his subjection to this act." ~ Blaise Pascal (French scientist and philosopher, 1623–1662)
