They say humor is an insignia of intellect. But why am I posting these humorous quotes I love about writers here, especially when considering that writing is a serious and noble profession? The drive behind this post is to enlighten the funny side of this serious profession and edify how funny creature the writers are – in other words, how intelligent they are.Here are some of the humorous quotes I love about writers and freelance writers:
