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


"If we openly  declare what is wrong  with us, what is our deepest need, then  perhaps the death and  despair will by degrees  disappear."


"Be yourself is  about the worst advice  you can give to  some people."


"To different  minds, the same world  is a hell, and  a heaven."


"Time's only a kind  of dream. It it wasn't, it would  have to destroy everything -  the whole universe - and then remake it again every tenth of a second. But time doesn't destroy anything. It merely moves us on - in this life - from one peephole to the next."


"There was no  respect for youth when I was  young, and now that I am old,  there is no respect for age.  I missed it coming and going."


"The more  elaborate our means of  communication, the less we  communicate."


"To show a child  what has once delighted  you, to find the child's  delight added to your  own, so that there is now a double delight seen in the  glow of trust and affection, this is happiness."


"We don't live alone.  We are members of one body. We are responsible for each  other. And I tell you that  the time will soon come when  if men will not learn that  lesson, then they will be  taught it in fire and blood and anguish."


"We must beware  the revenge of the starved senses, the embittered animal in its prison."


"Public opinion polls  are rather like children in a garden, digging things  up all the time to see how they're growing."
