Live in such a way that you would not be ashamed to sell your parrot to the town gossip.
Our public men are speaking every day on something, but they ain't saying anything.
Will Rogers used to say he wouldn't run for president no matter how badly the country needed a comedian.

It's great to be great, but it's greater to be human.
We can't all be heroes. Somebody has to sit on the curb and clap as they go by.
Everything is funny as long as it is happening to somebody else.
There's no trick in being a humorist when you have the whole government working for you.
Everybody is ignorant only on different subjects.
We are all ignorant about different things.
