Albert Einstein
The authenticity of this quote is disputed and no source before 1969 can be found, though this sentiment was certainly not expressed first by Einstein even if it was really spoken by him. Earlier variants include, "He quotes the saying of Renan: it isn't the stars that give him an idea of infinity; it is man's stupidity" and "But who knows? The earth has its boundaries, but human stupidity is infinite!"

Funny quotes to keep you laughing

One of the great things about quotes is that they can express such a range of emotions. They can make you cry, they can soothe the soul, they can express the longing of love, and thankfully, they can make you howl with laughter.

Funny quotes are real treasures in a world that often takes itself way too seriously. From contemporary comedians to the timeless tongue-in-cheek wisdom of the ageless greats—Will Rogers, Mark Twain and Groucho Marx—there are funny quotes for all occasions and all senses of humor.

What you say? People have different senses of humor? Why yes, they do. Some like funny quotes to be on the dry side of wit while others want a boldfaced twist of words that will have them rolling on the floor uncontrollably.

For example, there are countless anonymous classics, such as “Energizer Bunny arrested, charged with battery” or the sage advice of “Never go to a doctor whose office plants have died.”

Others gravitate to the funny quotes of the famed comedians. Joan Rivers is famous for her one-liners such as: "I knew I was an unwanted baby when I saw that my bath toys were a toaster and a radio."  So is Rodney Dangerfield: “When I was born the doctor took one look at my face… turned me over and said, Look… twins!"

Funny quotes can also be quite truthful and timely, such as Robert Orben’s: "Washington is a place where politicians don't know which way is up and taxes don't know which way is down."

In an age of social media—Twitter, Facebook and so on—funny quotes can give you something worthwhile to say, even when your own witty words momentarily escape you.

They can also add a little levity to a more serious occasion. Who doesn’t like a little laugh during a wedding toast? Instead of being all serious, boring guests to tears, you can be the life of the party by offering up funny quotes from the likes of Zsa Zsa Gabor, who certainly knows a thing or two about marriage: “A man in love is incomplete until he has married. Then he's finished.”

Fortunately, finding funny quotes is easy these days. You can use the handy search feature to find a specific category of quotes, including “Funny.” Just click on the category and off you go. Or you can narrow your search by the author or the topic that needs a humorous quotation. Chances are good that you’ll find just the right quote quickly and easily, ready to delight friends and family with something that matches your unique sense of humor.

While many of these funny quotes are attributed to famous people, don’t overlook the anonymous and unknown entries. They can provide just as much laughter, even though nobody took credit for them. For example, who doesn’t love: “When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather did, in his sleep—not screaming, like the passengers in his car.”


Now who wouldn’t want to lay claim to that little beauty?
