#1. It's not a joke. Life is not a joke. - Author: David Szalay
Joke Life quotes by David Szalay
#2. These days every morning begins like a joke
you think you have heard before,
but there is no one telling it
whom you can stop.
One day it's about a cow who walks into a bar,
then about a man with a big nose on his honeymoon,
then about a kangaroo who walks into a bar.
Each one takes up an entire day.
The sun looks like a prank Nathanael West
is pulling on the world; on the drive to work
cars are swinging comically from lane to lane.
The houses and lawns belong in cartoons.
The hours collapse into one another's arms.
The stories arc over noon and descend
like slow ferris wheels into the haze of evening.
You wish you could stop listening and get serious.
Trouble is you cannot remember the punch line
which never arrives till very late at night,
just as you are reaching for the bedside lamp,
just before you begin laughing in the dark. - Author: Billy Collins
Joke Life quotes by Billy Collins
#3. This is some sort of joke, isn't it?" asks Hunt, staring at the flawless blue sky and distant fields.
I cough as lightly and briefly as possible into a handkerchief I have made from a towel borrowed from the inn. "Probably," I say. "But then, what isn't? - Author: Dan Simmons

Joke Life quotes by Santosh Kalwar
#5. Stanley forced a smile to his lips at the memory of the onesided romance; it was silly, after all, a stupid childhood crush. Who'd fall in love with a fictional character? That was the kind of thing you laughed about as an adult. Or at least Harriet had thought so. He couldn't quite do it, though. Couldn't quite see it as a joke. It had felt too real, too raw and wild and fierce, for him to
dismiss it even now. It was love, of a sort, stunted and unformed as it was. For a time, it had kept him sane. - Author: Amelia Mangan
Joke Life quotes by Amelia Mangan
#6. If life a joke then I'm waiting for the punch. You all about the beef but me, I'm bout the bun. - Author: Mac Miller
Joke Life quotes by Mac Miller
#7. But if you knew that, why on earth did you marry her?" Rosemary asked.

"Why?" Rhett's mouth twisted in a smile.
"Because she was so full of fire and so recklessly, stubbornly brave.Because she was such a child beneath all her pretenses.Because she was unlike any woman I had ever known. She fascinated
me,infuriated me, drove me mad. I loved her as consumingly as she loved him. From the day I first laid eyes on her. It was a kind of disease."
There was a weight of sorrow in his voice. He bowed his head into his two hands and laughed shakily. His voice was muffled and blurred by his fingers. "What a grotesque practical joke life is. Now Ashley Wilkes is a free man and would marry Scarlett on a moment's notice, and I want to be rid of her. Naturally that makes her determined to have me. She wants only what she cannot have."
Rhett raised his head. "I'm afraid," he said quietly, "afraid that it will all begin again. I know that she's heartless and completely selfish, that she's like a child who cries for a toy and then breaks it once she has it. But there are moments when she tilts her head at a certain angle, or she smiles that gleeful smile, or she suddenly looks lost-and I come close to forgetting what I know. - Author: Alexandra Ripley
Joke Life quotes by Alexandra Ripley
#8. You're over there in the corner either thinking about the dead dog or whatever, you're bringing up your personal life and you need the space, and then somebody throws you a joke. Especially if it's an emotional scene, you don't want the joke. - Author: Marcia Gay Harden
Joke Life quotes by Marcia Gay Harden
#9. I hope life isn't a big joke, because I don't get it. - Author: Jack Handy

#10. Too many lives go up in smoke - It's nice to laugh but don't be the joke. - Author: Janet Jackson
Joke Life quotes by Janet Jackson
#11. Life as a private investigator, slash bounty hunter wasn't all Gary Beck wanted it to be. There weren't any big mansions on a palm beach owned by an affluent writer generous enough to let him live rent-free and use his spare Ferrari. But then you have to ask yourself, what could you expect living on a planet like Deanna? As a third-rate colony in the Terran Empire, Deanna had more than its fair share of dull moments. It orbits a star called Ramalama. If you think that's funny, Deanna's two moons are called Ding and Dong, respectively (this is a local joke) and one of them falls down occasionally. - Author: Christina Engela
Joke Life quotes by Christina Engela
#12. If fate doesn't make you laugh, you just don't get the joke. - Author: Gregory David Roberts
Joke Life quotes by Gregory David Roberts

Joke Life quotes by Karen DeCrow
#14. Never laughing too loudly in a restaurant no matter how good the joke. - Author: Paulo Coelho
Joke Life quotes by Paulo Coelho

Joke Life quotes by Santosh Kalwar

Joke Life quotes by Kathy Griffin
#18. I started wondering about life stories, how each one of us has one that isn't apparent at first glance, what we tell the world about ourselves and what we deliberately tuck away and never reveal. - Author: Laura Wiess
Joke Life quotes by Laura Wiess
#19. The free market exists to promote prosperity and human life, and that is what it has accomplished, splendidly, with breathtaking brilliance. In the industrialized world, the average person today enjoys a standard of living superior to that of kings and emperors of the past. The whole world's population is capable of enjoying the same marvelous results, if it adopts economic freedom. - Author: George Reisman
Joke Life quotes by George Reisman

Joke Life quotes by Henry Moore

Joke Life quotes by Leigh Bardugo

#25. Tokyo is bigger than Kumamoto. And Japan is bigger than Tokyo. And even bigger than Japan... Even bigger than Japan is the inside of your head. Don't ever surrender yourself ― not to Japan, not to anything. You may think that what you're doing is for the sake of the nation, but let something take possession of you like that, and all you do is bring it down. - Author: Natsume Sōseki
Joke Life quotes by Natsume Sōseki

Joke Life quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#28. I am a school teacher doing life and death sums. - Author: Gabrielle Burton
Joke Life quotes by Gabrielle Burton
#29. You've never been the safe, nice girl next door, despite everything you do to be that person. That's why you joined the I.S., and even there you didn't fit in, because, knowing it or not, you were a possible threat to everyone around you. People sense it on some level. I see it all the time. The dangerous are attracted by the lure of an equal, and the weak are afraid. Then they avoid you, or go out of their way to make your life miserable so you'll leave and they can continue deluding themselves that they're safe. ( ... ) You got off on the risk. - Author: Kim Harrison
Joke Life quotes by Kim Harrison
#30. ...there is something Russian about this particular use of the eye as an aggressive and defensive weapon. In Russian literature there is endless variation in the use of the eye as a soulful receptor, as an avid grasper, and as the very organ for mutual soulful surrender. In regard to the great models of political and literary life, however, the emphasis is on the eye as an incorruptible instrument for the manipulation of the future. Gorky's description of Tolstoy is typical: 'With sharp eyes, from which neither a single pebble nor a single thought could hide itself, he looked, measured, tested, compared.' Or again, his eyes are 'screwed up as though straining to look into the future'.
Equally typical is Trotsky's description of Lenin:
When Lenin, his left eye narrowed, receives a wireless containing a speech he resembles a devilishly clever peasant who does not let himself be confused by any words, or deluded by any phrases. That is highly intensified peasant shrewdness, lifted to the point of inspiration. - Author: Erik H. Erikson
Joke Life quotes by Erik H. Erikson

Joke Life quotes by Jesse Peyronel
#34. Anybody who's ever been broken up with, or had their heart stepped on or ripped out of them; you question everything you've based your whole life on. It's like, is anything real? Cause nothing 's more real than that, and now it's gone. - Author: Kristen Stewart
Joke Life quotes by Kristen Stewart
#35. You don't want me to fight? I won't fight. You want me to break up with Gemma? She's gone. You want me to quit my shit job, give up my apartment in Charles Town, and move to Maryland? Done. You want to go to college? I'll make it happen. "I've been half d-dead for ten years, Gris, but then you walked back into my life, and I came alive again. You make me want to live. You make me want to be a better man. "I love you, and when I say that, I mean that you're my reason for breathing, for eating, for drinking, for sleeping, for living. I will never hurt you. I will never leave you. I will always protect you. There is no one more important to me than you, and as long as I live, there never w-will be. - Author: Katy Regnery
Joke Life quotes by Katy Regnery

on the adventure
of the journey. - Author: Morgan Harper Nichols

Joke Life quotes by Jackie Kay

Joke Life quotes by Jen Lancaster

Joke Life quotes by D.H. Sidebottom

Joke Life quotes by Kate Grenville
#46. I've filled my whole life trying to preserve the memory of living, in the fight against dying. Perhaps the only thing I've done, since stopping death is impossible, is to show this fight. The fight itself does not satisfy us either. - Author: Christian Boltanski
Joke Life quotes by Christian Boltanski
#47. I am an old man, but in many senses a very young man. And this is what I want you to be, young, young all your life. - Author: Pablo Casals
Joke Life quotes by Pablo Casals
#48. Whenever anybody whom we love dies, we discover that although death is commonplace it is terribly original. We may have thought about it all our lives, but if it comes close to us, it is quite a new, strange thing to us, for which we are entirely unprepared. It may, perhaps, not be the bare loss so much as the strength of the bond which is broken that is the surprise, and we are debtors in a way to death for revealing something in us which ordinary life disguises. - Author: William Hale White
