Quotable Sunday

Sunday, July 19, 2009

Good morning! And happy Quotable Sunday. I just love great quotes, don't you? For this week's edition, I've chosen quotes on humor. A good sense of it can get you through quite a bit of struggle with much less pain. Hope you enjoy these and have a joyful Sunday :D


Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing.
William James

A well-developed sense of humor is the pole that adds balance to your steps as you walk the tightrope of life.
William A. Ward

A sense of humor... is needed armor. Joy in one's heart and some laughter on one's lips is a sign that the person down deep has a pretty good grasp of life.
Hugh Sidey

Humor distorts nothing, and only false gods are laughed off their earthly pedestals.
Agnes Repplier

Humor is merely tragedy standing on its head with its pants torn.

Irvin S. Cobb

Humor is the affectionate communication of insight.
Leo Rosten

Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not; a sense of humor to console him for what he is.
Francis Bacon

I really like the first quote by William James. It's so true. People without a lot of common sense never understand jokes.

Happy Sunday.

If common sense and sense of humor are the same thing then all those people I see with no common sense don't have a sense of humor either, huh.

Following you on networked blogs.
