I'm the youngest in my family, and everyone is very funny, and I was always trying to keep up with them. I just loved making people laugh.
You know what the Englishman's idea of compromise is? He says, Some people say there is a God. Some people say there is no God. The truth probably lies somewhere between these two statements.
I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
I have always loved truth so passionately that I have often resorted to lying as a way of introducing it into the minds which were ignorant of its charms.
Anyone entrusted with power will abuse it if not also animated with the love of truth and virtue, no matter whether he be a prince, or one of the people.
I am amazed about how everyone wants to know about my love life. They whisper to me, 'Tell me the truth? Is it true?' Who cares? Because we have this job, we are to say to everybody what we do, or with whom we sleep? It's a bit absurd, but that's why everybody lies so much.
There are only two people who can tell you the truth about yourself - an enemy who has lost his temper and a friend who loves you dearly.
A friend once asked me what comedy was. That floored me. What is comedy? I don't know. Does anybody? Can you define it? All I know is that I learned how to get laughs, and that's all I know about it. You have to learn what people will laugh at, then proceed accordingly.
There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.
Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
Wine comes in at the mouth And love comes in at the eye; That's all we shall know for truth Before we grow old and die.
To an ordinary human being, love means nothing if it does not mean loving some people more than others.
For though we love both the truth and our friends, piety requires us to honor the truth first.
I'm one of those people you hate because of genetics. It is the truth.
... truth is handsomer than the affectation of love.
Strangely enough I'm better on a stage. I love that I feel like I blossom in front of a whole bunch of people.
Then I despair... I remember that all through history, the way of truth and love has always won. There have been murderers and tyrants, and for a time they can seem invincible. But in the end they always fall. Think of it always.
I love the look of planes and the idea of how a plane flies. The more I learn about it the better I feel; while I still may not like it, I have a sense of what is really happening.
And all people live, Not by reason of any care they have for themselves, But by the love for them that is in other people.
If I think more about death than some other people, it is probably because I love life more than they do.
Well, it's 15 years since Sex, Lies And Videotape, and if you hang around long enough you're having the same arguments with just a new set of people every few years and it gets boring.
People are constantly clamoring for the joy of life. As for me, I find the joy of life in the hard and cruel battle of life - to learn something is a joy to me.
I have learned not to read reviews. Period. And I hate reviewers. All of them, or at least all but two or three. Life is much simpler ignoring reviews and the nasty people who write them. Critics should find meaningful work.
Truth is a deep kindness that teaches us to be content in our everyday life and share with the people the same happiness.
