"When I look at a lot of older stuff that I've written, I think one sign of amateur humor writing is when you see people trying too hard."
"I'm not after fame and success and fortune and power. It's mostly that I want to have a good job and have good friends that's the good stuff in life."
"Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of."
