When I write, I’m not trying to be funny. It’s the way I look at the world.
More Billy Collins quotes :
Humor, for me, is really a gate of departure. It's a way of enticing a reader into a poem so that less funny things can take place later. It really is not an end in itself, but a means to an end.Billy Collins
There's something very authentic about humor, when you think about it. Anybody can pretend to be serious. But you can't pretend to be funny.Billy Collins
I'm going through life's cycles at an alarmingly fast pace, but my persona has a Peter Pan quality: he doesn't age.Billy Collins
