A Quote by Mark Sauer on blessings, funny, and joy

Blessings on thee, maiden fair, bare back, bare legs, bare here and there! With thy funny pantaloons and thy praising modern tunes! With thy red lips, redder still, smeared with rouge, til fit to kill. With the face cream on thy face, for thy blouse a bit of lace! Outward sunshine, inward joy, we'd nothing like you when I was a boy.

A Quote by Joan Benoit on challenge, courage, funny, good, life, people, selfishness, and women

It's funny. I'm attracted to things that don't have any impact on life. People say I've done a great thing for women. I don't think I have. People say I've given people courage. That makes me feel good, but I don't see how I do that. I think my running is a selfish thing. But it provides the challenge that allows me to feel good about myself. How can I expect to do well in other activities if I don't feel good about myself?

A Quote by Jack Handey on football, funny, ideas, laughter, sports, and trying

Marta was watching the football game with me when she said, "You know, most of these sports are based on the idea of one group protecting its territory from invasion by another group." "Yeah," I said, trying not to laugh. Girls are funny.

A Quote by Grace Haines on fame, funny, grace, happiness, jokes, justice, laughter, life, mind, trouble, world, and worth

LITTLE THINGS Oh, it's just the little homely things, The unobtrusive friendly things, The "won't you let me help you" things That make our pathway light; And it's just the jolly joking things, The "never mind the trouble" things, The "laugh with me, it's funny" things, That make the world seem bright. For all the countless famous things, The wondrous record breaking things, Those never-can-be-equalled things That all the papers cite, Are not like little human things The"just because I like you" things That make us happy quite. So here's to all the little things, The "done and then forgotten" things, Those "Oh, it's simply nothing" things, That make life "worth the fight." -Grace Haines
