31 amusing quotes by Woody Allen to raise a smile

quotes by Woody AllenToday I thought it might be amusing to explore some of the many quotes by Woody Allen. A man with a ready supply of witty one-liners that are always guaranteed to raise a smile.

As many readers will know, Woody Allen is an American film director, writer, actor, and comedian whose career spans more than six decades and multiple Academy Award-winning films.

He began his career writing material for television in the 1950s, and he’s written several books, as well as humorous pieces for the magazine The New Yorker.

Woody Allen has developed a monologue style of comedy, rather than traditional jokes, and his stage persona is that of an insecure, intellectual, fretful nebbish.

In 2004, Comedy Central ranked Woody Allen fourth on a list of the 100 greatest stand-up comedians, while a UK survey ranked Woody Allen the third-greatest comedian.

Anyway, here are 31 amusing quotes by Woody Allen and I hope you enjoy them all.

17 amusing quotes by Bob Hope to raise a smile

Quotes by Bob HopeToday I thought exploring some quotes by the late, great, Bob Hope would be interesting. Always the funny man with a ready wit.

If you’re not quite old enough to remember him now, Bob Hope was one of the biggest stars in the golden age of American entertainment.

In many ways, the quintessential, proud American, Bob Hope was born in 1903 in Eltham, southeast London. His family moved to the United States when he was aged four and he grew up near Cleveland, Ohio.

He began his career in show business in the early 1920s, initially as a comedian and dancer on the vaudeville circuit, before acting on Broadway.

Bob Hope began appearing on the radio and in films starting in 1934.

He was known for his comedic timing, specializing in one-liners and rapid-fire delivery of jokes that were often self-deprecating and he helped establish modern American stand-up comedy.

Bob Hope was active in public life until 1998 but, sadly, died at home on July 27, 2003, at the age of 100.

A successful man by any measure, and successful people are always worth listening to.

So here are 17 quotes by Bob Hope, that are amusing and reflect the humour of his era.

Enjoy them all and feel free to share them with your friends.

Quotes by Bob Hope:

  1. They’ll always be an England, even if it’s in Hollywood.
  2. You never get tired unless you stop and take time for it.
  3. Bigamy is the only crime where two rites make a wrong.
  4. I love to go to Washington if only to be near my money.
  5. Middle age is when your age starts to show around your middle.
  6. You know you’re getting old when the candles cost more than the cake.
  7. I don’t feel old. I don’t feel anything till noon. That’s when it’s time for my nap.
  8. I’ve always been in the right place and time. Of course, I steered myself there.
  9. I do benefits for all religions. I’d hate to blow the hereafter on a technicality.
  10. A bank is a place that will lend you money if you can prove that you don’t need it.
  11. I grew up with six brothers. That’s how I learned to dance. Waiting for the bathroom.
  12. If you haven’t got any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble.
  13. She said she was approaching forty, and I couldn’t help wondering from what direction.
  14. I have a wonderful make-up crew. They’re the same people restoring the Statue of Liberty.
  15. A sense of humour is good for you. Have you ever heard of a laughing hyena with heartburn?
  16. I have seen what a laugh can do. It can transform almost unbearable tears into something bearable, even hopeful.
  17. When we recall the past, we usually find that it is the simplest things, not the great occasions, that in retrospect give off the greatest glow of happiness.

amusing quotes about earning a livingToday I have a collection of amusing quotes about earning a living. Some reflections on the nature of work and money.

Most of us have no choice but to do whatever’s necessary to pay our bills and put bread on the table.
