Quote: Stephen Fry

Standard

fav-1107‘Love in all eight tones and all five semitones of the world’s full octave.’

‘Taste every fruit of every tree in the garden at least once. It is an insult to creation not to experience it fully. Temperance is wickedness.’

‘It is a cliche that most cliches are true, but then like most cliches, that cliche is untrue.’

‘It only takes a room of Americans for the English and Australians to realise how much we have in common.’

‘They are just 100 per cent bear, whereas human beings feel we’re not 100 per cent human, that we’re always letting ourselves down. We’re constantly striving towards something, to some fulfilment.’

‘My life, at least, is divided between writing and performing and mixtures of the two.’

‘An original idea. That can’t be too hard. The library must be full of them.’

Quote: Hugh Laurie

Standard

‘People will survive, and they will find happiness. Happiness only comes when you’re not looking for it.’

‘Acting is largely about putting on masks, and music is about removing them.’

‘I think pain is a very – it’s an extremely hard thing to empathize moment to moment. And you often don’t remember your own pain, you know, that moment that you broke a limb or you burned yourself or, I think, this is a common thing that women talk about with childbirth, that the memory of the pain is hard to summon up and relive, thankfully.’

‘Girls are complicated. The instruction manual that comes with girls is 800 pages, with chapters 14, 19, 26 and 32 missing, and it’s badly translated, hard to figure out.’

‘Humility was considered a great virtue in my family household. No show of complacency or self-satisfaction was ever tolerated. Patting yourself on the back was definitely not encouraged, and pleasure or pride would be punishable by death.’

‘I get anxious about a lot of things, that’s the trouble. I get anxious about everything. I just can’t stop thinking about things all the time. And here’s the really destructive part – it’s always retrospective. I waste time thinking of what I should have said or done.’
