Make people laugh and they will think you a trivial fellow. Bore them in just the right way, and your success is assured.
W. Somerset Maugham (1874-1965)
Laugh and the world laughs with you, snore and you sleep alone.
Anthony Burgess (1917-93)
Give a man a fire and he's warm for the day. But set fire to him and he's warm for the rest of his life.
Sir Terry Pratchett (1948-2015)
