Quote by George Burns
Someone who makes you laugh is a comedian. Someone who makes you think and then laugh is a humorist.
This quote emphasizes the difference between a comedian and a humorist. While a comedian's role is to simply make people laugh, a humorist goes a step further by engaging their audience intellectually and prompting them to think. A humorist combines clever and witty humor with insightful commentary or observations, creating a deeper level of connection and enjoyment for the audience. This quote highlights the unique ability of a humorist to entertain and stimulate thought simultaneously.
It is the great business of every Christian to save souls. People complain that they do not know how to take hold of this matter. Why, the reason is plain enough; they have never studied it. They have never taken the proper pains to qualify themselves for the work. If you do not make it a matter of study, how you may successfully act in building up the kingdom of Christ, you are acting a very wicked and absurd part as a Christian.
