humour quotes on life by michael moore quotes
When I look in the mirror, I am slightly reminded of self-portraits by Durer and by Rembrandt, because they both show a degree of introspection. I see some element of disappointment; I see a sense of humour, but also something that is faintly ridiculous; and I see somebody who is frightened of being found out and thought lightweight.
humour quotes on life by robert winston quotes

humour quotes on life by aimee mullins quotes
As a kid, I was school swot, but I used to hang around the billiard halls, learning that Geordie sense of humour, mixing with low-lifes.

humour quotes on life by sid waddell quotes
