Funny Quotes

Laughter is a wonderful way to release stagnant, heavy, negative energy. I’ve collected funny inspirational quotes just for you. No matter what you have been feeling lately, these fun quirky quotes will make you chuckle and might just inspire your life in a positive way.

Our time on Earth is never long enough, so why not enjoy it?! There are times when we lose sight of what’s most important, and these quotes about having fun and enjoying your life will remind you of it.

In case you forgot, life is better when you take time to let loose and kick back. That means it’s okay to let your hair down every once in a while—no excuses!

Also, I’d like to know, when you think of fun, what comes to mind? Mention in the comments below!

I mean sure, inspirational quotes are required in life to give you that push you need. But life’s boring without fun, right? As it’s rightly said – laughter is the best medicine. But if you’re laughing without any reason, you need medicine.

You see what I did there?

Anyway, that’s exactly the reason why funny quotes work in parallel with inspirational quotes.

Here are 20 funny quotes to lift your spirits!

1. “You must learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t possibly live long enough to make them all yourself.” – Sam Levenson

Oi, can you imagine? Learning from our own mistakes is often hard enough, if we had to make all the mistakes to learn all of the lessons, it would be exhausting! Watch and learn from others around you and you will gain wisdom.

2. “Anyone who takes himself too seriously always runs the risk of looking ridiculous; anyone who can consistently laugh at himself does not.” – Vaclav Havel

If you always want to be taken seriously then bumps in the road or slight embarrassments might make you feel quite foolish. However, if you’re a person who laughs at himself in good humor, then the quirky times in life will simply make you laugh even more and your pride will still be intact.

3. “Don’t mind your make-up, you’d better make your mind up.” – Frank Zappa

When you’ve got some decisions to make, stop minding your make up and make up your mind! Figure out your life rather than minding your makeup which is just a mask anyway. But if you have nothing to make up your mind about at the moment, then mind your makeup like the marvelous, magnificent, maven that you are!

4. “When I hear somebody sigh, ‘Life is hard,’ I am always tempted to ask, ‘Compared to what?’” – Sydney Harris

Since we don’t remember where we came from, and this world is all we know, how can you possibly think life is hard if you have nothing else to compare to? Let this thought give you a little bit of perspective. If you’re open to it, it might help you deal with your life in a more graceful way.

5. “You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.” – Jack London

Sometimes you have to chase inspiration down with all of your adrenaline pumping, beast hunting skills, and beat it into submission. Being inspired doesn’t always come as quickly or easily as we might want it. Sometimes we must force ourselves into it. If that’s what it takes, no harm done.

6. “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. And find people whose life has given them vodka and have a party!” – Unknown

Probably my most favorite funny quote which ironically adds up to life. It serves as a constant reminder that even in your messiest state, you still have the potential for bigger things. A constant reminder for everyone, in every stage of their life.

7. “Common sense is like deodorant. The people who need it most never use it.” – Unknown

This quote doesn’t need an explanation considering the world we live in.

8. “My dentist told me I need a crown. I was like I KNOW, RIGHT!” – Unknown

If we don’t acknowledge our struggles and failures that got us where we are, who will? Pat yourself on the back for all that you’ve done to get to this point in your life. Gratitude and acceptance go a long way in helping and supporting your life in a good fashion.

9. “My friend thinks he’s smart. He says onions are the only food that make you cry. So I threw a coconut at his face.” – Unknown

You be the judge where you can apply this quote in your life. Maybe the know-it-alls?

10. “A man asked if I could donate to the local swimming pool and I came back with a glass of water.” – Unknown

Something is better than nothing, right? There’s always a silver lining. Look carefully, it might just be around the corner. The above quote may not be the best fit here for this positive outlook, but hey, funny quotes could be used for a little chuckle as well as a little insight, right?

11. “A peacock that rests on his feathers is just another turkey.” – Dolly Parton

You are a valuable person with valuable gifts inside of you. It does absolutely no good if you sit on all of them as if you were a peacock resting on his feathers. Don’t be a turkey, show your feathers, and flaunt yourself! Just do so with clothing on when you’re in public, mmkay?

12. “I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.” – Lily Tomlin

Be careful what you wish for, right? Wanting to be somebody is great, but without a clear vision of where you want to go, you never know what you get. If you aren’t specific about the type of person you want to be, then the world will make whatever person out of you that it will.

13. “There are no traffic jams along the extra mile.” – Roger Staubach

Going the extra mile means you usually don’t have a lot of competition, because the average person doesn’t go the extra mile. In a world full of numbing foods, activities, and entertainment, giving that extra little bit is reserved for those who have a desire and work ethic for it.

14. “Life is a shipwreck but we must not forget to sing in the lifeboats.” – Voltaire

Life to be one big, fat, crazy, insane, challenging, scary, shipwreck that threatens to take us under. However, Voltaire’s advice about singing is right on the mark. When life gets you down, climb into whatever life boat that is nearby, and sing praises that you’re alive!

15. “Here is a test to find whether your mission on earth is finished: If you’re alive it isn’t.” – Richard Bach

‘Nuff said. As long as you have breath within you, there are things that you are here to learn, share, and accomplish. So take a deep breath, stretch your lazy bones, and get up and get to work. Your life purpose might be grand or seem simple, but hey, it is valuable nonetheless.

16. “Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.” – Elbert Hubbard

None of us are making it out alive! We might as well goof off, play, and laugh as much as we can while we’re here. Creating love, joy, and peace within ourselves and each other is truly a more worthy goal than being serious all the time, don’t you think?

17. “If you could kick the person in the pants responsible for most of your trouble, you wouldn’t sit for a month.” – Theodore Roosevelt

Our choices lead to our own personal troubles. It can be easy to want to blame others that we’re involved with, but the fact remains that we create our own reality with the choices we make. So give yourself a good talking to and try to make better choices.

18. “The difference between genius and stupidity is; genius has its limits.” – Albert Einstein

Coming from a genius himself, Albert knows that genius does reach its limits based on resources or brainpower available. However, the choices of stupidity are endless and quite disturbing actually. Though, good thing we have geniuses that clean up the messes of the stupid!

19. “It’s a strange world of language in which skating on thin ice can get you into hot water.” – Franklin P. Jones

This is an interesting blend of two phrases. It’s quite true though, people tell you that with your choices in behavior you’re skating on thin ice, and once you do and the ice breaks, you are then in hot water. So which is it people, can we have one or the other?

20. “There are two ways to pass a hurdle: leaping over or plowing through… There needs to be a monster truck option.”- Jeph Jacques

It’s often impossible to leap over our hurdles and problems, completely avoiding them. Plowing through them is a much better option, though it can be extremely exhausting. With a monster truck option, we would be able to plow through the challenges of life completely encased and cocooned. That’s our vote.

  1. Good morning. Good Monday post. I thought I should let you know that I could view the post via Word Press but not via the email link. It just loaded and reloaded that page without stopping. I also couldn’t comment on the site – I got an “invalid security token” message. Ah, the joys of tech. I do enjoy the new look. Blessings.

  2. Wow, I really liked this read and it was very inspirational. Where you said “if you aren’t specific about the type of person you want to be the world will make whatever person it wants to” I loved that because it so true. Very insightful read…

  3. All these are great! #8 I KNOW RIGHT!?!? #18 truer words have never been spoken. #20 – I’ld like the Monster Truck option as well. It would be a lot more fun! Thanks for the laugh
