5 Funny Quotes To Cheer You Up

When you're feeling down, humor can lift you back up again by improving your attitude and leaving you in a positive state of mind. That’s the reason many professionals cut out comic strips and humorous anecdotes and display them in their offices in order to lighten the atmosphere and relieve stress in the workplace. Here is a list of funny quotes to put a smile on your face!

"Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go." - Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde was an Irish author and poet who was known for his biting humor, and this quote is a good example of his ability to attribute humor to a serious topic. Of course death is a tragic event, but this quote appeals to our love of gossip and Wilde's quote makes us feel vindicated in the face of people we consider to be mean or negative.

"The hardest thing in the world to understand is income taxes." - Albert Einstein

We've all been there. Trying to get your taxes done can be one of the most frustrating experiences you have all year, especially if you're not mathematically inclined. However, the speaker of this quote is one of the most famous mathematicians of all time, which is what makes the quote that much better.

"If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of payments." - Earl Wilson

This quote is a great example of dark humor, as Wilson is comparing loneliness to the hounding from debt collectors when you miss payments, which is something many people can understand. Wilson's quote provides another example of how humor can lift you out of a dark time by reminding you that there are other people who are now or have been in your situation, which is a comforting notion.

"A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kickboxing." - Emo Philips

With the number of computers and devices in our lives steadily going up, it's likely many of us have had less than pleasant experiences with new or foreign technology. Also, Philips is saying that there are things that no device on Earth can do, despite how coveted and expensive our devices are.

"People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do." - Isaac Asimov

In this quote Asimov exposes the vanity many of us are guilty of, and of the dangers of overconfidence. The funniest part is that, according to many of his readers and critics, Asimov was a genius. Asimov turns the idea around on himself and puts himself on a pedestal while still managing to use self-deprecation in the funniest way possible. When you're feeling down, there is nothing better than a bit of humor to pick you up and make your day substantially easier to work through. The next time you're feeling low and need to forget your worries for a while, remember these quotes, recite them to your friends, and spread some good cheer to those around you!
