The world is a tragedy to those who feel, but a comedy to those who think.
Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he isn't. A sense of humor was provided to console him for what he is.

Nine-tenths of the people were created so you would want to be with the other tenth.
We had a great time on the floor, though we had a few bobbles. We were so relaxed. By that time, we knew we had it won.
We have hundreds and hundreds of cases to work and one day we'll pull your file and you'll be our next target.
The man who has no imagination has no wings.
