Tim Minchin Quotes: Choice Words From The Singing Comedian


Tim Minchin Quotes

Here are some of the best Tim Minchin quotes.

‘Every mystery ever solved has turned out to be not magic.’

‘The Aus­tralian comedy circuit is kind of small, and big in the most inconvenient ways. There aren’t many venues, and the ones we have are hundreds of miles apart and separated by mountains. That’s probably why so many of us come to the UK.’

‘And yes I have all of the usual objections to the miseducation of children, who in tax-exempt institutions are taught to externalise blame. And to feel ashamed and to judge things as plain right or wrong’

‘People who place ideology above evidence at the cost of others. Alternative-med practitioners who discourage clients from seeing doctors, anti-vaccination campaigners, those who try to impose biblical morality onto modern law-making…I’m happy for people to have non-evidential belief systems, but please keep them out of my government, hospitals and my children’s schools.’

‘If a person or an institution are held sacred by too many people, then they are by definition beyond criticism. And when a person or an institution becomes beyond criticism, it seems they slip inevitably towards corruption.’

‘I really like Christmas
It’s sentimental, I know, but I just really like it
I am hardly religious
I’d rather break bread with Dawkins than Desmond Tutu, to be honest’

‘Morality is written there in simple white and black
I feel sorry for you heathens, got to think about all that
Good is good and evil’s bad and goats are good and pigs are crap
You’ll find which one is which in the Good Book, ‘cos it’s good
And it’s a book, and it’s a book.’
