Saki (pen name of Hector Hugh Munro) was a British author and playwright. Renowned as the “Master of Short Stories”- he brilliantly combined wit and mischief in his writing with darker themes while mocking the Edwardian society and culture. He is often juxtaposed to Dorothy Parker and O. Henry. Influenced by legends such as Rudyard Kipling, Lewis Carroll and Oscar Wilde, he produced plays such as ‘The Interlopers’, ‘The Open Window’ and ‘The Westminster Alice’ (a parody of Alice in Wonderland). His work generally emphasized the hypocrisies and notions that were prevalent in the rule of King Edward. He believed that the Great Socialist Statesmen aren’t made but born. His work, thoughts, sayings and writings are loved by people of all genres. Here are few sayings and quotes by Saki on youth, goals, humor and life.
