Sarcasm is "a sharp, bitter, or cutting expression or remark; a bitter gibe or taunt." Sarcasm may employ ambivalence, although sarcasm is not necessarily ironic. "The distinctive quality of sarcasm is present in the spoken word and manifested chiefly by vocal inflections". The sarcastic content of a statement will be dependent upon the context in which it appears. (Source)

"Mr. Buckley also said that when [Whittaker] Chambers left the Communist Party he thought he was moving to the losing side, and he never changed his mind. Chambers said there were 'two irreconcilable faiths of our time – Communism and God.' He believed that the west had willingly turned it’s back on God and unless men turned back to Him there was no hope for freedom and communism would win. Despite his pessimism about the west, Buckley swears that Chambers was a man of great good humor and cheer." (Source)
"Sarcasm, Dostoyevsky said, was 'usually the last refuge of modest and chaste-souled people when the privacy of their soul is coarsely and intrusively invaded.'"
