Quotes About Sarcasm
Quotes about Sarcasm
Sarcasm can be defined as a keen or reproachful expression. Sarcasm is a satirical remark uttered with some degree of scorn or contempt against a person or a group. It is quite synonymous to a taunt or a gibe. In the words of Fyodor Dostoevsky,” Sarcasm: the last refuge of modest and chaste-soul people when the privacy of their soul is coarsely and intrusively invaded.” Sarcasm is closely related to irony, though irony is usually the immediate context, however, others argue that sarcasm may often do involve irony, but neither is considered as a form of argument. Sarcasm is insulting humour, the tone of the person making the satirical remark being quite casual or insulting. In the words of the famous poet Thomas Carlyle,“ Sarcasm I now see to be, in general, the language of the devil; for which reason I have long since as good as renounced it.”
