Top funny quotes about life, love, friends and even death (with videos)

Updated on August 23, 2015

Being too serious is dangerous, read some funny quotes to relax



Funny quotes are a good way of cheering yourself up when you are in a bad mood, bored or even stressed. Some of them contain not only humor but also some deep wisdom of life. I firmly believe that we can learn something from them. Although they are very short, they likewise contain so much educational inspiration that could inspire you for a couple of days and lead to some creative activities that could transform your life completely. I do not mean to say that it will happen after you finish reading funny quotes and my comments about them in the hub, but I and probably you have read about people whose lives have been changed by a few or even one powerful idea and those people accomplished great things. So let it be with us.

Time as a teacher

1. Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all its pupils ... - by Louis Hector Berlioz

I think this is pretty ironic and not only funny. It is very true as well. I suppose most people learn a lot throughout their lives. We live and we learn from: our mistakes and successes, other people failures and victories, books, advice, movies and many more. The unfortunate thing is that all of us die one day. So, if we are pupils of life, life is very cruel and kills us. Even if we do not learn anything we still die. This is a pretty scary idea for most people and they try to push ideas about death aside. However, none of us will escape death like it we or not. Only if you believe that there is an even more wonderful life in store for you after death you can look at these sayings and laugh.


2, The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don't want, drink what you don't like, and do what you'd rather not. - by Mark Twain

Well, I could not agree more. Just think about those tasty things like: pizzas, cola, hamburgers, chips, chocolate and you name it. Are they very healthy? I guess not. And when you start thinking about some healthy things you find out that they are definitely not in your top food items. I had my gall bladder removed a few weeks ago and now I have to eat healthy food. What can I eat? Things I do not like. However, I think we need to be more creative and search more some healthy and tasty stuff. I do not understand why tasty things do not go hand in hand with healthy things, but this is very usual about life – it is full of paradoxes. So, just smile it off.


3. Son, if you really want something in this life, you have to work for it. Now quiet! They're about to announce the lottery numbers. - by Homer Simpson

All of us know that it is hard work that usually leads to success. However, it takes so much time to achieve. So we would rather try to take a short cut and hope that we will be successful in lotteries or similar things. The paradox that the statement contains is that all of us know what to do but very few of us actually do what we know we have to do. Well, that is our miserable human nature. It is always searching for shortcuts. Unfortunately there is usually a disappointment at the end of them.


4. I told the doctor I broke my leg in two places. He told me to quit going to those places. - by Henny Youngman

In life there you can react to different things in different ways. For some people problems are tragedies, for others they are opportunities. The same way you can react to all sorts of misunderstandings that abound in life. They can be pretty annoying in the beginning but when you remember them, I think they make you laugh. So learn to react to everything positively and with a sense of human. Let it be your attitude.


5. Man invented language to satisfy his deep need to complain. by Lily Tomlin

Funny, isn’t it? And very true I should say. However, it is not so funny to always have a person around that does nothing but complains all the time. It is nice to watch that type of character in movies, meeting him/her a few times in life, but not being friends with the person. But I will repeat myself as I said about shortcuts. It is in the nature of any human beings to complain and only positive attitude about life can constrain us from complaining.


6. I have opinions of my own -- strong opinions -- but I don't always agree with them. - by George Bush

“Well, poor George”, some might say, but I think it happens to most of us from time to time. Duplicity in thoughts and character should not be our daily companion, but it still might arise from time to time in us and make us wonder why we do things that we do. Occasionally we believe one thing and do another. And again I guess we should seek the answer in our human nature. Sometimes we are just afraid, at other times ashamed to show who we really are. What should be done? Well, I suppose this hub should provide some funny phrases that make you laugh and my comments most probably made it too serious, so I will answer the question with another funny quote:”The problem with people is that they are only human”. by Bill Watterson


7. "All men are equal: but some are more so than others" by Walter Barrett.

Most people want equality in life. However, only some men are ‘more equal’. This is a truth that everybody knows and this is a truth that everybody tries to ignore, or pretend that it does not exist. I suppose this situation is due to the fact that not everybody is playing according to the same rules. Some people try to follow the rules of the game which is called life and other people try to bypass the rules. That’s why some people become more equal than others. And I am sure that it is not going to change till the end of the world. However, I do not think that these ‘more equal people’ are happier than less equal people. So, let us just smile it off.

Cost and chances of living

8. "The cost of living's going up, and the chance of living's going down" by Flip Wilson.

I think we are coming to the realization of the quote very fast. You can read hundreds of explanations why oil is rising or what affects the price of gold. You also hear politicians saying how caring they are about average Joe’s problems. Unfortunately, the financial trend of average Joe is steady. It is going down. And what can we do about it? Spoil our nerves by watching evening news and listening to endless promises of government officials? Forget about them! I would even recommend quitting watching those programs, unless they are very funny for you. Take care after your health, family, friends and your soul. You will survive.

Natural foods

9. “I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes..“ by unknown author.

Again ambiguity involved, which often makes the quotations so funny. I think we too often laugh from things that are good, for example natural foods and this is basically due to the fact that some people try to promote ideas about natural foods too much. Well, I am all for natural foods, but you just would not expect to get some terminal disease after eating a few candies or biscuits with some E… something inside. I suppose we could coin more funny phrases about junk food than we would about natural. If you are going to continue eating junk food the cause of your d---h will be very natural!


10. "I think I saw your face somewhere! Oh, yes! It was on facebook".

Time to end my hug! I did not include many more of quotes because I intend to do it in my future hubs. In the meantime I would recommend reading my hub about friends. Good luck in everything you do and always remember that the best is still to come. Smile.

      fibo777 5 years ago

      Yes, some quotes seem to be funny at first. As you look more closely at them, they kind of become sad...

      Thanks for reading the article Trent.
