Home page > This HUMOROUS-QUOTES (and LINKS) page

"Serious" quotes (philosophical, political, sociological)
are on a different page.

Some quotes are both humorous and philosophical
and may appear on either page, or both.

"Life is like a box of chocolates ..." - Forrest Gump

! NOTE !
Like most 'LINKS' pages on the web, there will, no doubt,
be more and more dead links on this page over time.
It may be years at a time before I return to this page to
remove dead links and replace some links with better links.
In the meantime, try 'WEB SEARCH' links provided on this page.


The following quotes are in no groups at this time --- i. e. they are not collected into categories, yet. And the list of quotes are in no particular order at this time.

However, some keywords, that help classify each quote, are placed near each quote --- to help find it, as follows.

As a flexible and comprehensive way of locating quotes of interest :

You can use an option like 'Find in This Page ...' of your web browser to find keywords, such as

'persistence'   OR   'persist'   OR   'try'   OR   'age'   OR   'money'   OR   'mother'

For some quotes, there will be links to web sites with information about the author or source of the quote.

There are web links to 'sites that specialize in quotes' available near the bottom of this page.

In addition, there are some 'WEB SEARCH' links on keywords like 'quote humorous'.

If there appear to be a lot of quotes collecting on certain topics --- such as 'medicine' or 'health' or 'government' or 'politics' --- then the quotes on this page may (eventually) be grouped together.

When a quote could be assigned to multiple groups, a single group will be chosen --- to avoid maintenance of duplicates. You will still be able to find the quote with a keyword search of this page.
