„So when all the yielding and objections is over, the other Senator said, "I object to the remarks of a professional joker being put into the Congressional Record." Taking a dig at me, see? They didn't want any outside fellow contributing.“

—  Will Rogers

Ch. 9<!-- chapter 9, pp. 156–57-->
Contexto: So when all the yielding and objections is over, the other Senator said, "I object to the remarks of a professional joker being put into the Congressional Record." Taking a dig at me, see? They didn't want any outside fellow contributing. Well, he had me wrong. Compared to them I'm an amateur, and the thing about my jokes is that they don't hurt anybody. You can say they're not funny or they're terrible or they're good or whatever it is, but they don't do no harm. But with Congress — every time they make a joke it's a law. And every time they make a law it's a joke.

„Every Gag I tell must be based on truth.“

—  Will Rogers

"Politics Getting Ready to Jell" <!-- p. 265 -->
The Illiterate Digest (1924)
Contexto: Every Gag I tell must be based on truth. No matter how much I may exaggerate it, it must have a certain amount of Truth.... Now Rumor travels Faster, but it don't stay put as long as Truth.

„When you put down the good things you ought to have done, and leave out the bad ones you did do — well, that’s Memoirs.“

—  Will Rogers

Contexto: When you put down the good things you ought to have done, and leave out the bad ones you did do — well, that’s Memoirs. <!-- Ch. 16

—  Will Rogers

"The World Tomorrow" After the Manner of Great Journalists
The Illiterate Digest (1924)

„The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.“

—  Will Rogers

Contexto: There are three kinds of men: The ones that learns by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.

„It would wreck the very foundation on which our political government is run … If you ever injected truth into politics you'd have no politics“

—  Will Rogers

Nationally syndicated column number 31, A Few Shots of Scopolamin (15 July 1923), after meeting Robert E. House, who had proposed the use of scopolamine as a truth serum, in The Use of Scopolamine in Criminology (1922).
Weekly columns
Contexto: See they conducted experiments on convicts... I don't know on what grounds they reason a man in jail is a bigger liar than one out of jail... The chances are telling the truth is what got him there... It would be a big aid to humanity, but it will never be, for already the politicians are up in arms against it... It would wreck the very foundation on which our political government is run... If you ever injected truth into politics you'd have no politics … Even the ministers are denouncing it now … Humanity is not yet ready for either real truth or real harmony.
