Quote of the Day
You should laugh everywhere you can find even the slightest glimmer of humour.
One of my great regrets, and I don't have many, is that I spent too long putting people's status and reputation ahead of their more important qualities.

Humour is by far the most significant activity of the human brain.
Edward de Bono
I love a girl with a good sense of humour, who is confident but who has a sweetness to her - that melts my heart.
People who know me know that there's a light-hearted side, humour... But you could easily say I am cheeky.
Not all journalists are really journalists. They ask such stupid questions sometimes, especially the newer ones, and because... these people can't tell if you're joking around, you just can't have any sense of humour; you really can't.
Humour is the weapon of unarmed people: it helps people who are oppressed to smile at the situation that pains them.
My parents' divorce left me with a lot of sadness and pain and acting, and especially humour, was my way of dealing with all that.
The only way to survive is to have a sense of humour.
People think that I can just walk into a room and get a job, but of the 200 interviews and auditions I go through a year, I may get three yeses. I just have to use my sense of humour to get me through.

W. Somerset Maugham
Life is hard. It is not too short, it is too long. But you have to learn how to live; you have to have a sense of humour.
I don't mock things, which makes me more vulnerable to mockery myself. If you're cynical, you're protected from mockery. But I have to be nice. I don't think I have irony. A sense of humour, yes, but not irony.
My father and I had a good relationship, it was very relaxed. He had a lot of humour. He looked a little bit like me, although he had no beard. He had the appearance of a very elegant British-looking man.
I prefer the finesse of French humour. English humour is more scathing, more cruel, as illustrated by Monty Python and Little Britain.
I use humour a lot. My foundation is tragic, but my appearance is humorous.

I have survivor skills. Some of that is superficial - what I present to people outwardly - but what makes people resilient is the ability to find humour and irony in situations that would otherwise overpower you.

I've often said the most difficult things I have to say to people through humour. I can very quickly put someone in their place with it. But we all walk away unscathed because there's been some funnies around it, and I'll usually make sure that it comes back at me.
My humour and my work ethic definitely come from my Scottish side, and I have to say the sense of humour doesn't really translate when I'm in America.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
