Thoughts for Thursday is a new meme hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Readers may respond by either commenting on the quote I put forward or contributing a quote of their own. I'll include a linky list, or you can just respond in the comments.

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!   

This week's theme is comedy.

“Comedy is the art of making people laugh without making them puke.” --Steve Martin
“Satire is tragedy plus time. You give it enough time, the public, the reviewers will allow you to satirize it. Which is rather ridiculous, when you think about it.” ― Lenny BruceThe Essential Lenny Bruce
Comedy is tragedy plus time.--Carol Burnett
"In a comedy it helps enhance things that were already there.--Ivan Reitman

What do you think? Which is your favorite? Do you have a quote to contribute?


  1. Comedy is great to watch or read, tough to pull off.

  2. I like the Steve Martin one best. One of my personal favourites though is this ....... “Life doesn't make any sense, and we all pretend it does. Comedy's job is to point out that it doesn't make sense, and that it doesn't make much difference anyway.”
    ― Eric Idle

    1. I like that one too! Thanks for sharing a quote! I think you're the first person who ever has! :D
