    If you have easy self-contentment, you might have a very, very cheap source of happiness.

    In order to have great happiness you have to have great pain and unhappiness - otherwise how would you know when you're happy?

    It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.

    It is the chiefest point of happiness that a man is willing to be what he is.

    A humorist is a person who feels bad, but who feels good about it.

    view

    A joke is a very serious thing.

    view

    A laugh is a surprise. And all humor is physical. I was always athletic, so that came naturally to me.

    view

    A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road.

    view

    A pun is the lowest form of humor, unless you thought of it yourself.

    view

    A sense of humor is a major defense against minor troubles.

    view

    A sense of humor is the ability to understand a joke - and that the joke is oneself.

    view

    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.

    view

    A taste for irony has kept more hearts from breaking than a sense of humor, for it takes irony to appreciate the joke which is on oneself.

    Alimony is like buying hay for a dead horse.

    Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested and the frog dies of it.

    Comedy has to be based on truth. You take the truth and you put a little curlicue at the end.

    view

    Comedy is simply a funny way of being serious.

    view

    Comedy, we may say, is society protecting itself - with a smile.

    view

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

    Humor can alter any situation and help us cope at the very instant we are laughing.

    Humor is mankind's greatest blessing.

    view

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

    view

    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.

    view

    Humor is reason gone mad.

    view

    Humor is richly rewarding to the person who employs it. It has some value in gaining and holding attention, but it has no persuasive value at all.

    Humor is the instinct for taking pain playfully.

    One doesn't have a sense of humor. It has you.

    Puns are a form of humor with words.

    view

    The satirist shoots to kill while the humorist brings his prey back alive and eventually releases him again for another chance.

    view

    The secret to humor is surprise.

    view

    There is no defense against adverse fortune which is so effectual as an habitual sense of humor.

    view

    There seems to be no lengths to which humorless people will not go to analyze humor. It seems to worry them.

    view

    This I conceive to be the chemical function of humor: to change the character of our thought.

    view

    What a strange world this would be if we all had the same sense of humor.

    A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.

    All men who have achieved great things have been great dreamers.

    view

    All successful people men and women are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose.

    view

    Can you imagine what I would do if I could do all I can?

    view

    Everything that is new or uncommon raises a pleasure in the imagination, because it fills the soul with an agreeable surprise, gratifies its curiosity, and gives it an idea of which it was not before possessed.

    view

    Fiction reveals truths that reality obscures.

    view

    I always imagined I could be what I wanted to be.

    view

    I am better able to imagine hell than heaven; it is my inheritance, I suppose.

    view

    I am imagination. I can see what the eyes cannot see. I can hear what the ears cannot hear. I can feel what the heart cannot feel.

    view

    I believe in the imagination. What I cannot see is infinitely more important than what I can see.

    view

    I believed in myself. I never imagined myself as just an ordinary player.

    view

    I doubt that the imagination can be suppressed. If you truly eradicated it in a child, he would grow up to be an eggplant.

    view

    I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.

    view

    I imagine that yes is the only living thing.

    view

    I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.

    I never did very well in math - I could never seem to persuade the teacher that I hadn't meant my answers literally.

    Imagination and fiction make up more than three quarters of our real life.

    view

    Imagination grows by exercise, and contrary to common belief, is more powerful in the mature than in the young.

    Imagination has brought mankind through the dark ages to its present state of civilization. Imagination led Columbus to discover America. Imagination led Franklin to discover electricity.

    On rare occasions one does hear of a miraculous case of a married couple falling in love after marriage, but on close examination it will be found that it is a mere adjustment to the inevitable.

    One advantage of marriage is that, when you fall out of love with him or he falls out of love with you, it keeps you together until you fall in again.

    For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver.

    For myself I hold no preferences among flowers, so long as they are wild, free, spontaneous. Bricks to all greenhouses! Black thumb and cutworm to the potted plant!

    I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.

    I knew, of course, that trees and plants had roots, stems, bark, branches and foliage that reached up toward the light. But I was coming to realize that the real magician was light itself.

    view

    I like trees because they seem more resigned to the way they have to live than other things do.

    I never saw a discontented tree. They grip the ground as though they liked it, and though fast rooted they travel about as far as we do.

    I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.

    In some mysterious way woods have never seemed to me to be static things. In physical terms, I move through them; yet in metaphysical ones, they seem to move through me.

    Nature is wont to hide herself.

    Nature knows no pause in progress and development, and attaches her curse on all inaction.

    Nature teaches more than she preaches. There are no sermons in stones. It is easier to get a spark out of a stone than a moral.

    Design is people.

    view

    Design is the method of putting form and content together. Design, just as art, has multiple definitions; there is no single definition. Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that's why it is so complicated.

    view

    Design must reflect the practical and aesthetic in business but above all... good design must primarily serve people.

    view

    Design works if it's authentic, inspired, and has a clear point of view. It can't be a collection of input.

    view

    Designers are very fickle. I never wanted to be a victim of that. You're in one minute, out the next.

    Designs of purely arbitrary nature cannot be expected to last long.

    Every contrivance of man, every tool, every instrument, every utensil, every article designed for use, of each and every kind, evolved from a very simple beginnings.

    Great designers seldom make great advertising men, because they get overcome by the beauty of the picture - and forget that merchandise must be sold.

    I think it's really important to design things with a kind of personality.

    I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.

    Harmony with land is like harmony with a friend; you cannot cherish his right hand and chop off his left.

    I think the cost of energy will come down when we make this transition to renewable energy.

    I think the environment should be put in the category of our national security. Defense of our resources is just as important as defense abroad. Otherwise what is there to defend?

    view

    I think the government has to reposition environment on top of their national and international priorities.

    Liberals in Congress have spent the past three decades pandering to environmental extremists. The policies they have put in place are in large part responsible for the energy crunch we are seeing today. We have not built a refinery in this country for 30 years.

    Equality may perhaps be a right, but no power on earth can ever turn it into a fact.

    Equality, rightly understood as our founding fathers understood it, leads to liberty and to the emancipation of creative differences; wrongly understood, as it has been so tragically in our time, it leads first to conformity and then to despotism.

    In America everybody is of the opinion that he has no social superiors, since all men are equal, but he does not admit that he has no social inferiors, for, from the time of Jefferson onward, the doctrine that all men are equal applies only upwards, not downwards.

    In order to get beyond racism, we must first take account of race. There is no other way. And in order to treat some persons equally, we must treat them differently.

    All of us grow up in particular realities - a home, family, a clan, a small town, a neighborhood. Depending upon how we're brought up, we are either deeply aware of the particular reading of reality into which we are born, or we are peripherally aware of it.

    I love America more than any other country in this world, and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually.

    view

    I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.

    view

    I realize that patriotism is not enough. I must have no hatred or bitterness towards anyone.

    view

    I'm an advocate of the great Dr. Johnson, the English man of letters who said that patriotism was the last refuge of the scoundrel.

    view

    It is lamentable, that to be a good patriot one must become the enemy of the rest of mankind.

    view

    It is not easy to see how the more extreme forms of nationalism can long survive when men have seen the Earth in its true perspective as a single small globe against the stars.

    It is the patriotic duty of every man to lie for his country.

    It was patriotism, not communism, that inspired me.

    My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.

    Nationalism is a silly cock crowing on his own dunghill.

    view

    Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind.

    view

    No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

    On what rests the hope of the republic? One country, one language, one flag!

    Patriot: the person who can holler the loudest without knowing what he is hollering about.

    view

    Patriotism consists not in waving the flag, but in striving that our country shall be righteous as well as strong.

    view

    Patriotism is a kind of religion; it is the egg from which wars are hatched.

    view

    Patriotism is an instant reaction that fades away when the war starts.

    view

    Patriotism is easy to understand in America. It means looking out for yourself by looking out for your country.

    view

    Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime.

    view

    Patriotism is often an arbitrary veneration of real estate above principles.

    view

    Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it.

    view

    Patriotism is the virtue of the vicious.

    view

    Patriotism is the willingness to kill and be killed for trivial reasons.

    view

    Patriotism is when love of your own people comes first; nationalism, when hate for people other than your own comes first.

    Patriotism is your conviction that this country is superior to all others because you were born in it.

    view

    The average American is nothing if not patriotic.

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness.

    view

    A poem can have an impact, but you can't expect an audience to understand all the nuances.

    view

    A poem conveys not a message so much as the provenance of a message, an advent of sense.

    view

    A poem is never finished, only abandoned.

    view

    A poem is true if it hangs together. Information points to something else. A poem points to nothing but itself.

    view

    A poem might be defined as thinking about feelings - about human feelings and frailties.

    view

    A poet can survive everything but a misprint.

    view

    A poet is, before anything else, a person who is passionately in love with language.

    view

    A poet looks at the world the way a man looks at a woman.

    view

    A poet's autobiography is his poetry. Anything else is just a footnote.

    view

    A poet's work is to name the unnameable, to point at frauds, to take sides, start arguments, shape the world, and stop it going to sleep.

    view

    A true poet does not bother to be poetical. Nor does a nursery gardener scent his roses.

    view

    All bad poetry springs from genuine feeling.

    Children and lunatics cut the Gordian knot which the poet spends his life patiently trying to untie.

    view

    Each memorable verse of a true poet has two or three times the written content.

    view

    Each word bears its weight, so you have to read my poems quite slowly.

    view

    Even when poetry has a meaning, as it usually has, it may be inadvisable to draw it out... Perfect understanding will sometimes almost extinguish pleasure.

    view

    Every single soul is a poem.

    view

    Everyone thinks they're going to write one book of poems or one novel.

    view

    Everything one invents is true, you may be perfectly sure of that. Poetry is as precise as geometry.

    view

    Genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood.

    view

    He who draws noble delights from sentiments of poetry is a true poet, though he has never written a line in all his life.

    view

    How do poems grow? They grow out of your life.

    view

    However, if a poem can be reduced to a prose sentence, there can't be much to it.

    view

    I like poems that are little games.

    view

    I sometimes talk about the making of a poem within the poem.

    No poem is easily grasped; so why should any reader expect fast results?

    No poems can please for long or live that are written by water drinkers.

    One merit of poetry few persons will deny: it says more and in fewer words than prose.

    One will never again look at a birch tree, after the Robert Frost poem, in exactly the same way.

    Pain is filtered in a poem so that it becomes finally, in the end, pleasure.

    Poetry is a mirror which makes beautiful that which is distorted.

    view

    Poetry is all that is worth remembering in life.

    view

    Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance.

    view

    Poetry is an orphan of silence. The words never quite equal the experience behind them.

    view

    Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash.

    view

    Poetry is language at its most distilled and most powerful.

    view

    Poetry is nearer to vital truth than history.

    view

    Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things.

    view

    Poetry is ordinary language raised to the Nth power. Poetry is boned with ideas, nerved and blooded with emotions, all held together by the delicate, tough skin of words.

    view

    Poetry is plucking at the heartstrings, and making music with them.

    view

    Poetry is the art of creating imaginary gardens with real toads.

    view

    Poetry is the art of uniting pleasure with truth.

    view

    Poetry is the opening and closing of a door, leaving those who look through to guess about what is seen during the moment.

    Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words.

    view

    Poetry is the synthesis of hyacinths and biscuits.

    Poetry is thoughts that breathe, and words that burn.

    view

    Poetry is what gets lost in translation.

    view

    Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

    Poetry should... should strike the reader as a wording of his own highest thoughts, and appear almost a remembrance.

    The moment of change is the only poem.

    view

    The novel is born of disillusionment; the poem, of despair.

    view

    The poem is a little myth of man's capacity of making life meaningful. And in the end, the poem is not a thing we see-it is, rather, a light by which we may see-and what we see is life.

    In my opinion, most of the great men of the past were only there for the beer - the wealth, prestige and grandeur that went with the power.

    Of course, I do have a slight advantage over the rest of you. It helps in a pinch to be able to remind your bride that you gave up a throne for her.

    view

    Saw a wedding in the church. It was strange to see what delight we married people have to see these poor fools decoyed into our condition.

    view

    That is ever the way. 'Tis all jealousy to the bride and good wishes to the corpse.

    view

    The chain of wedlock is so heavy that it takes two to carry it - and sometimes three.

    view

    The first thing I did when I sold my book was buy a new wedding ring for my wife and asked her to marry me all over again.

    view

    The one thing that I'm in charge of in this wedding is the food.

    The trouble with wedlock is that there's not enough wed and too much lock.

    America is a land where men govern, but women rule.

    Clever and attractive women do not want to vote; they are willing to let men govern as long as they govern men.

    I think that women just have a primeval instinct to make soup, which they will try to foist on anybody who looks like a likely candidate.

    I think today women are very scared to celebrate themselves, because then they just get labeled.

    Intimacies between women often go backwards, beginning in revelations and ending in small talk.

    It is little men know of women; their smiles and their tears alike are seldom what they seem.

    Man does not control his own fate. The women in his life do that for him.

    Men and women belong to different species and communications between them is still in its infancy.

    Men are by nature merely indifferent to one another; but women are by nature enemies.

    Men mourn for what they have lost; women for what they ain't got.

    view

    Men should only believe half of what women say. But which half?

    view

    My advantage as a woman and a human being has been in having a mother who believed strongly in women's education. She was an early undergraduate at Oxford, and her own mother was a doctor.

    No doubt exists that all women are crazy; it's only a question of degree.

    view

    On the whole, I think women wear too much and are to fussy. You can't see the person for all the clutter.

    view

    One can find women who have never had one love affair, but it is rare indeed to find any who have had only one.

    view

    Only men who are not interested in women are interested in women's clothes. Men who like women never notice what they wear.

    People don't want to see women doing things they don't think women should do.

    Plain women know more about men than beautiful women do.

    Relationships are made of talk - and talk is for girls and women.

    Some of us are becoming the men we wanted to marry.

    view

    Some women feel the best cure for a broken heart is a new beau.

    view

    Speaking very generally, I find that women are spiritually, emotionally, and often physically stronger than men.

    view

    The appalling thing is the degree of charity women are capable of. You see it all the time... love lavished on absolute fools. Love's a charity ward, you know.

    view

    The house a woman creates is a Utopia. She can't help it - can't help trying to interest her nearest and dearest not in happiness itself but in the search for it.

    view

    The labor of women in the house, certainly, enables men to produce more wealth than they otherwise could; and in this way women are economic factors in society. But so are horses.

    There is a physical relationship with a woman that you don't have with anybody else, but that's not about love. Love is a spiritual thing.

    What bugs me is that movies don't reflect how interesting and vibrant women are. We don't treasure women as they get older.

    What we women need to do, instead of worrying about what we don't have, is just love what we do have.

    When anything goes, it's women who lose.

    Whether women are better than men I cannot say - but I can say they are certainly no worse.

    Why is it men are permitted to be obsessed about their work, but women are only permitted to be obsessed about men?

    Wives are young men's mistresses, companions for middle age, and old men's nurses.

    Women always excel men in that sort of wisdom which comes from experience. To be a woman is in itself a terrible experience.

    Women are clear-headed, they are more creative and for this reason, sometimes, also more fragile.

    Dieting is murder on the road. Show me a man who travels and I'll show you one who eats.

    view

    Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

    In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life. It goes on.

    view

    Live life fully while you're here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You're going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don't try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.

    I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad itseems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I've learned thatyou can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things:a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I've learned thatregardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they'regone from your life. I've learned that making a living is not the same thing asmaking a life. I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on bothhands; you need to be able to throw some things back. I've learned that wheneverI decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I'velearned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one. I've learned thatevery day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, orjust a friendly pat on the back. I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what youdid, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

    It's a funny thing about life; if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it.

    view

    The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A Death! What's that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you're too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work. You work forty years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating......and you finish off as an orgasm.

    view

    The difference between school and life? In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you're given a test that teaches you a lesson.

    Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now.

    The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.

    I believe that the very purpose of life is to be happy. From the very core of our being, we desire contentment. In my own limited experience I have found that the more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being. Cultivating a close, warmhearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. It helps remove whatever fears or insecurities we may have and gives us the strength to cope with any obstacles we encounter. It is the principal source of success in life. Since we are not solely material creatures, it is a mistake to place all our hopes for happiness on external development alone. The key is to develop inner peace.
