I love reading quotes on Goodreads. Mainly because it gives me snippets of an author’s words so I know which to get or read. But also because the quotes sometimes carry deeper meanings which are relatable.
So I decided to round up 14 humor quotes which look funny when read at first glance, but on deeper reflection has some truth to it.
Remember, it’s all about perspective.
So without much fuss, here are the 14;
A word to the wise ain’t necessary, it’s the stupid ones who need advice.”
“Never put off till tomorrow what may be done day after tomorrow just as well”.
“Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.”

“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Then quit. No use being a damn fool about it.”
“Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”
“Learn from the mistakes of others. You can never live long enough to make them all yourself.”
“Confidence is ignorance. If you’re feeling cocky, it’s because there’s something you don’t know.”
“The easy confidence with which I know another man’s religion is folly teaches me to suspect that my own is also.”
“Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.”
“A banker is a fellow who lends you his umbrella when the sun is shining, but wants it back the minute it begins to rain.”
“Humanity takes itself too seriously. It is the world’s original sin. If the cave-man had known how to laugh, History would have been different.”
“April 1. This is the day upon which we are reminded of what we are on the other three hundred and sixty-four.”
