“Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go” – Oscar Wilde
Oscar Wilde always comes up with such zingers. I know one thing. If I had ever met him in real life, I wouldn’t have wanted to get on his bad side.
Everyone hopes that they are one of those who cause happiness wherever they go but how can you know? All of us have known someone that is like this. Generally well loved by everyone, friendly, kind and funny. Those are the characteristics that I would give to someone who would fit in this category.

When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
If you know kids, you know this is the truth. Kids are always exploring, very curious and always involved in mischief! When you ask them ‘what are you up to?’ they always say nothing. But a parent always knows that they are up to something. The following funny children quotes are funny things that kids have said.

“Never be afraid to laugh at yourself. After all, you could be missing out on the joke of the century.”
~ Dame Edna Everage

“The only people with whom you should try to get even are those who have helped you.”
- John E. Southard
This is kind of a funny quote about revenge. Southard doesn’t believe in getting even with those who have wronged you but rather, to pass along the kindness back to those who have helped you. It is a stark contrast to people who believe in getting even with those who have wronged you.

It is better to put your energy, not into seeking revenge to those who have crossed you, but into helping those who have helped you. … Read the rest
If it turns out that there is a God, I don’t think that he’s evil. But the worst that you can say about him is that basically he’s an underachiever. – Woody Allen

He got his start as a full time comedy writer by the age of 19, he was writing scripts for such big shows as the Tonight Show and The Ed Sulivan Show.
