Quote: John Cleese

Standard

john-cleese‘He, who laughs most, learns best.’

‘The really good idea is always traceable back quite a long way, often to a not very good idea which sparked off another idea that was only slightly better, which somebody else misunderstood in such a way that they then said something which was really rather interesting.’

‘If you want creative workers, give them enough time to play.’

‘I have several times made a poor choice by avoiding a necessary confrontation.’

‘I think that money spoils most things, once it becomes the primary motivating force.’

‘A wonderful thing about true laughter is that it just destroys any kind of system of dividing people.’

‘I’m not saying Obama is right on everything. Of course not. He may be wrong on a number of things. But what I do know is that he behaves like a very, very sane man almost all the time.’

‘Now most people do not want an ordinary life in which they do a job well, earn the respect of their collaborators and competitors, bring up a family and have friends. That’s not enough anymore, and I think that is absolutely tragic – and I’m not exaggerating – that people feel like a decent, ordinary, fun life is no longer enough.’
