Humor is perhaps a sense of intellectual perspective: an awareness that some things are really important, others not; and that the two kinds are most oddly jumbled in everyday affairs. ~Christopher Morley



Humor results when society says you can't scratch certain things in public, but they itch in public. ~Tom Walsh

I think trust and truth go together and that can be woven in humor and be very powerful.



A great truth is a truth whose opposite is also a truth.

- Thomas Mann


To be a good human being is to have a kind of openness to the world, an ability to trust uncertain things beyond your own control, that can lead you to be shattered in very extreme circumstances for which you were not to blame. That says something very important about the condition of the ethical life: that it is based on a trust in the uncertain and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a plant than like a jewel, something rather fragile, but whose very particular beauty is inseparable from that fragility.

- Martha Nussbaum

Google is my best (online) friend! Not for quotes, necessarily, as I usually don't mess with them, but for all kinds of things, every time I have a question about anything....

Google is my best friend.

Good humor is a tonic for mind and body. It is the best antidote for anxiety and depression. It is a business asset. It attracts and keep friends. It lightens human burdens. It is the direct route to serenity and contentment.

- Greenville Kleisser


My way of joking is to tell the truth. It's the funniest joke in the world.

“It is a curious fact that people are never so trivial as when they take themselves seriously.” -- Oscar Wilde

“You can turn painful situations around through laughter. If you can find humor in anything, even poverty, you can survive it.” -- Bill Cosby

“Humor helps us to think out of the box. The average child laughs about 400 times per day, the average adult laughs only 15 times per day. What happened to the other 385 laughs?”

“If we may believe our logicians, man is distinguished from all other creatures by the faculty of laughter. He has a heart capable of mirth, and naturally disposed to it.”
Joseph Addison

Mirth is like a flash of lightning, that breaks through a gloom of clouds, and glitters for a moment; cheerfulness keeps up a kind of daylight in the mind, and fills it with a steady and perpetual serenity.”
Joseph Addison
