We've got people looking at our seamy side and our sad side a lot of the time because that's easier. It's much more difficult to make a film about happiness with lots of jokes in it.
There is a kind of happiness and wonder that makes you serious. It is too good to waste on jokes.
I've been writing jokes since I'm fifteen. Not out of happiness, but to go to a different place, because reality wasn't good to me.
If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.
The best ideas come as jokes. Make your thinking as funny as possible.
