Weekly Geeks Quote a Day: My favorite quote

Today we spotlight my all-time favorite quote, which can also be found in the Poor Kitten's Almanac section in the sidebar:

"A lot of comedy is tragedy plus time." --Carol Burnett

I try to see the humor in most things. And if I can't see it right away, over time, I start to see a situation's humor. There are some life problems that don't have any humor at all, but most of the time, I can sense some of the funnier elements.

To me, a sense of humor is vital for survival in this life. Without humor, I would seriously be a dead woman today.

And that's no joke.

I couldn't agree more. I can't go a day without laughter. Sometimes not even an hour.

Humor just makes life a little better.

Good quote. Carol Burnett is great. Loved her in the episode of Mad About You when Jamie was having her baby. Burnett is her Mom and she is yelling at the nurses to give her drugs and Jamie said I want to do this drug free and she starts shaking Jamie and says "Are you crazy!"
