Insults: A Short Guide (From Literary Characters)

Do you ever need the perfect, witty, finger-snapping conversation-ender at short notice? Look no further, there are already some pretty fantastic one-liners out there! Here are a few of my favourite literary quips…but, like, be nice to people.

If your brains were dynamite there wouldn’t be enough to blow your hat off.

– Kurt Vonnegut, Timequake

I desire that we be better strangers.

– William Shakespeare, As You Like It

She is nuttier than squirrel poo.

– J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

I never saw anybody take so long to dress, and with such little result.

– Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest

 If looks could kill, you’d soon find out that yours couldn’t.

– Iris Owens, After Claude

What are your favourite ‘book burns’?

Thanks for reading, and have a lovely day!
