Quotes from Bill Cosby

I've always felt a kinship with comedian-educator Bill Cosby. Here are some of my favorite quotes from him.

In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.

Decide that you want it more than you are afraid of it.

People can be more forgiving than you can imagine. But you have to forgive yourself. Let go of what's bitter and move on.

You can turn painful situations around through laughter. If you can find humor in anything, even poverty, you can survive it.

“A thought comes . . . it's a true feeling, a funny feeling. And I get to develop it. [Writing] is more fun than performing, because I get to color with words.”

The truth is that parents are not really interested in justice. They just want quiet.

No matter how calmly you try to referee, parenting will eventually produce bizarre behavior, and I'm not talking about the kids. Their behavior is always normal.

The heart of marriage is memories; and if the two of you happen to have the same ones and can savor your reruns, then your marriage is a gift from the gods.

Nothing I've ever done has given me more joys and rewards than being a father to my children.
