From little life blunders to major tragic events, there is always room for a few laughs that make your sad tears turn into happy ones.

Here are 15 funny quotes about life, sarcastic jokes and witty quips to remind you that even on the darkest of days where things seem super heavy, there is always time for a quick joke between friends to lighten the mood.

15 Wise Quotes From Fashion Icon Gloria Vanderbilt About Life, Love And How To Be Truly Happy

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

The fashion pioneer and household name’s life was certainly eventful.

Last month the fashion world lost an icon in Gloria Vanderbilt. Dying at the age of 95, she accomplished a lot during her long life. From acting to art to writing and of course her iconic work in fashion, Vanderbilt went on to become a household name in many industries.

Born on February 20, 1924 in Manhattan, she was the daughter of an equestrian millionaire. When her father died, Vanderbilt and her half-sister each were awarded $5 million ($70 million in today’s money). Gloria was still pretty young when the inheritance was paid out, so her mother took control of the trust fund and spent a lot of it for years.

Concerned that Gloria’s mother wasn’t fit to be in charge of her, Gloria’s aunt stepped in, setting off what became at the time one of the most controversial trials in history. Ultimately it was decided that Gloria would live with her aunt and the mother was forced to live on a drastically reduced amount of the trust fund.

Beyond her childhood, Vanderbilt went into acting in 1954, primarily starring in plays and even made Broadway in the show The Time of Your Life. She eventually made her way to television, however, most of her appearances were on talk shows such as The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and CBS Sunday Morning News.

In the 70s, Vanderbilt began to get into the fashion industry as a designer, putting her art skills to use and applying their designs to a new line of scarves. After joining the Murjani Corporation, Vanderbilt’s signature was sewn onto a new line of designer jeans which is what Vanderbilt would be remembered for. But it wasn’t long after that she left Murjani and made her own company, GV Ltd, where she made a variety of clothing and luxury products including dresses and liqueur.

Gloria Vanderbilt was a mother of four children: Leopold Stanislaus Stokowski, Christopher Stokowski, Carter Vanderbilt Cooper, and American journalist and CNN anchor, Anderson Cooper.

Through the years Gloria Vanderbilt did a lot with her life and with those experiences comes wisdom. So, here are some of the best Gloria Vanderbilt quotes from this fashion icon.

1. How to find happiness.

“To be happy–one must find one’s bliss” — Gloria Vanderbilt

2. It’s all about helping others.

“We are not put on

After graduating, Rogers moved to New York City to work for NBC as a floor runner for an assortment of children’s shows. Two years later in 1953, Rogers moved back to Pennsylvania.

He was hired by a network it Pittsburg as a Program Developer for children’s television programs. Their main focus was a show called Children’s Corner, which Rogers developed, and Josie Carey starred.

This is where rogers first developed puppets that would later become household names, such as Daniel Tiger, King Friday, Queen Sara, X the Owl, Henrietta, and Lady Elaine.

In 1963 CBC Toronto brought Rogers to film a series called Misterogders. It consisted of 15-minute-long black and white episodes. It lasted from 1963 to 1967. It was his first time appearing on screen.

In 1968, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood began airing nationally. The show was modified to be a 30-minute-long educational program filled with puppets, learning and love. It was aired by WQED Pittsburgh, which later became PBS.

Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood eventually aired 865 episodes and ran for 31 years. Its final season aired in 2001.

In 2002 Rogers was diagnosed with Stomach Cancer. Rogers died on February 27, 2003 with his wife Sara by his side. He was weeks away from turning 75.

Mr. Rogers taught us so many things: He taught us how to love, and be loved. He taught us how to lose and how to succeed. He taught us how to be angry, and how to forgive. But most of all he taught us how to be a …

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Mark Twain has so funny and wise words about life and love.

Mark Twain was born under the name Samuel Langhorne Clemens, on November 30, 1935 in a town called Florida, Missouri. He was one of seven children, but only 4 of them lived past the age of 9.

When he was four years old, his family moved to a town called Hannibal, Missouri. It was a small town on the river, that served as the inspiration for the fictional town St. Petersburg in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

His father, a lawyer and a Judge, died in 1847 when Twain was 11. When he turned 12, he left school to become an apprentice to a printer. A few years later he began to contribute some writings and comics to the Hannibal Journal. The Hannibal Journal was owned by his older brother, Orion.

All of this was supposed to lead him to success in his greatest aspiration: to be a steamboat pilot. He began got his license and began to work as what was referred to as a “cub pilot”. He eventually convinced his younger brother, Henry to come work with him. In 1953, there was an explosion in the boiler room, where Henry sustained many injuries that eventually led to his death a week later. Twain said that he had foreseen his brothers death in a dream and that lean him to study parapsychology, the study of paranormal and psychic activity.

After his brothers accident, Twain was filled with guilt, eventually causing him to quit piloting all together.

He began writing for newspapers before finally getting published. He wrote a few travel pieces before he began work on his first novel. He eventually published The Guilded Age: A Tale of Today, his first attempt at a novel, also Twain’s only collaboration as he co-wrote it with Charels Dudley Warner.

His next major publication was the Adventures Of Tom Sawyer, which made him a household name. After that he went on to write The Prince and the Pauper, The Adventures of Huckelberry Finn, Life on the Mississippi, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthurs Court, and many, many more.

25 Inspirational Quotes That Say ‘Good Morning!’ To The World

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

“To become great, you need to do great things — one of which is waking up early in the morning.”

Mornings are a special time of day. The day is all fresh and new as a newborn babe. All the opportunities are there — so much hope in those few hours when most anything can still happen.

You plan and map out your day to the best of your ability and hope you will be able to accomplish everything you set out to do.

Should you be ambitious with your goals and potentially disappoint yourself by not fulfilling it all, or should you play it safe and then find yourself with idle time you feel you should spend in a productive manner, but don’t know quite how?

It truly is a dilemma.

What you do really should depend on your mood, though your mood will also affect your motivation level.

Sometimes, what you really need is a little external inspiration, especially in the form of the best quotes you can find about life and happiness.

If you feel moody or depressed, you might not try and plan much of anything, when getting out of bed and getting something to eat is a chore in itself. But sometimes, if you can force yourself to do something, anything more than just the bare necessities, you might find yourself with more energy in the end.

Productivity breeds productivity. It can clear the foul miasmas from your head.

But it is also important just to savor that feeling in the morning. When the day is new, when the sun has just crept above the horizon and everyone has woken out of slumber just as bed-ruffled as you. Savor that newness, taste it for what it represents, that every day is a new opportunity and a new chance to do something. Anything.

Use these good morning quotes as your virtual cup of Joe in the morning and as a means of inspiration and empowerment to get up and make it a good morning with the thoughts of limitless possibilities available to you each and every day.

Below is a collection a beautiful inspirational good morning quotes and images you can come back to daily or weekly and share with your friends and loved ones to offer a new perspective on their day. Let them serve as a fabulous reminder that you have choices every day …

40 Philosophical Quotes By Plato On Love & Life

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Let Plato tell it like it is.

Plato was a Greek philosopher who came up with a lot of interesting ways to view the world. Many people have different ways of viewing the world, and that is wonderful for keeping the world anything but mundane. Though, Plato also came up with a variety of interesting quotes to explain life and how people may interpret it.

His take on the world fascinated people because it was different. He told the truth.

His quotes have been an inspiration to millions of people around the world to help them get through hard times and uplift them.

As a wise man, Plato wanted people to look outside of the box, discover something new and take their own wisdom away from what he said to better people’s lives and the world. His way of teaching people through his writing has inspired people to get into writing themselves and life out their best lives through his quotes and his teaching. People say that you learn from the best. Plato was good at not telling people directly what the quotes are about and, instead, making them into a riddle so people can find out what his quotes mean on their own. Everyone can find their own way of interpreting his quotes. 

From the list of philosophical quotes below, can you find one of Plato’s quotes that relates to you?

Determining what that quote means in your life can help you learn more about the world. Everybody has a story, and each of the quotes tells a story in a way that can relate to the human condition, what people have gone through, what people want to say about the world and how the world can change.

Plato wanted to open people’s minds to the possibility of seeing things in a new manner.

Plato quotes can tell you a lot about yourself and how you handle people in your life.

Reading quotes from Plato and other philosophers encourages people to do better in their everyday life and to be empathetic to other people. Waking up and reading inspirational memes and quotes with deep meanings will make you feel more in touch with the world and the people around you. Changing the world doesn’t always stem from Plato’s sayings, but his teachings should encourage you to impact people in a way that is progressive and influential.

Plato changed the …

40 Funny Quotes To Live By When You’re Feeling Down In The Dumps

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

You can still squeeze in a good laugh.

Funny quotes and silly memes can be a relief when life starts to bring you down. Life isn’t always easy, and we don’t expect it to be, but, when you bring a few laughs into your day, life can get a little easier.

Last summer was filled with disappointment for me and I found myself constantly feeling low. I had just broken up with my boyfriend of almost two years, and life overall just seemed to be taunting me at every turn. I didn’t want to vent to friends like I normally would to feel better, but I knew I had to find a way to end my somber mood as quickly as possible.

Then it hit me. I had an untouched journal sitting on my desk. It was a birthday gift I had received from my mom years before. Opening the journal for just the third time in two years, I took a second to re-read the inside cover.

My mom had written a message telling me to bring some words to life, and so I did. I soon realized that journaling instantly made me feel better. I could share my most intimate thoughts and not have to worry about being judged or questioned. It was my pick-me-upper.

We all have those moments when we’re feeling down. Whether it be your boss overlooking you, your car breaking down or your significant other giving you a hard time, life always seems to have a funny way of making us feel crappy.

It is especially easy during this time to completely give up on the situation or to soak in the negative energy. That energy then consumes us and can make us forget about the power we have. We have the ability to overcome our bad moods. Remind yourself of this every time you find yourself slipping into an unwanted mood. Once that is accomplished, take some time to breathe, laugh and relax.

Life is always going to have its ups and downs, but we must choose to rise above any obstacles we encounter.

While there are many ways to get yourself to stop feeling down, a lot of people turn to quotes to help them get through their tough days and get back to a better mood. These quotes don’t always have to be serious, structured or inspirational. In fact, they can …

50 Motivating Life Quotes For People Who Can’t Stand Sappy Quotes

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

(Like me).

Live, laugh, love — Yeah, you know the drill.

I know, I know, you’ve heard it all before. And trust me, I get it. When you’re going through a rough time, sometimes inspirational words of wisdom are the absolute last thing you want to hear. Yeah, yeah. I know everything happens for a reason. Please keep your positive energy, cliches and self-care advice to yourself; I’ll handle this by napping too much and eating junk food — thanks.

I used to be firmly against “good vibes” of any kind. I was the relentlessly cynical friend who made it my job to always point out when the glass was really half empty. (Yes, I was a delight at parties.)

I liked to pretend that I was just being realistic, that what other people called cynicism or negativity was really just the truth. I told myself that I saw the world for what it really was, and everyone else was just lying to themselves.

The reality? I was just scared. I was trying to protect myself from disappointment by never allowing myself to hope or try for anything at all.

I didn’t want to deal with the shame and disappointment of wanting something and failing to get it. If I never allowed myself to want anything, I couldn’t be disappointed, now could I? Life hack!

And it worked… Sort of. I was never disappointed, but I sure as hell never actually got any of the things I secretly wanted. (It turns out you can’t actually turn off the part of your brain that wants stuff.) It took me a long time, but eventually I realized that the negative attitude I thought was protecting me had really just been holding me back.

Listen, I’m not saying I’m a completely reformed convert to the “good vibes” lifestyle. Don’t just dye their hair black to show everyone that they’re a beacon of optimism. But, the truth is, positive thinking and energy really are powerful. It may not seem like a bunch of inspirational quotes are the key to your success, (and frankly it does take much more than that) but a positive mindset really is crucial to getting the things you want in life.

Whether you’re working toward a long-term goal, experiencing a major life change or just trying to get through the day (like turning off Netflix and putting on real pants),

21 Encouraging & Uplifting Quotes To Get You Back On Your Feet When You’ve Hit Rock Bottom

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Wipe off the dirt and start climbing.

Hitting rock bottom is one of the hardest things for me to describe. Our own “hitting rock bottom” moments are things we all tend to talk about a lot because they’re what shape us into the people we become.

So I entertain this idea of rock bottom in my mind, trying to put into words exactly how being at rock bottom feels. The best definition I’ve been able to think of is just this: You know it when you feel it. 

It’s the feeling you get when things are going wrong all around you, and life feels chaotic — even hopeless. You’re losing drive, motivation and the ability to think clearly. 

To me, hitting rock bottom kind of feels like a roller coaster you can’t get off of. Of course, to make things worse, the roller coaster is underwater, so it’s really only a matter of time before you can’t hold your breath any longer. You drown under the pressure. In short, it sucks. 

The real question, though, is how do you take those feelings and channel them into something positive? How do you build yourself back up from rock bottom? How do you make it back to the surface? 

Even starting to think about these things feels overwhelming when you’re there. So here are 21 uplifting quotes to prove to you that life after reaching rock bottom really is possible. 

1. You will get through this and be stronger for it.

“When you have hit rock bottom and survived, there are very few things that can scare you.”  — Unknown

2. You will rebuild.

Never be afraid to fall apart. It represents an opportunity to rebuild yourself the way you wished you’d been all along.” — ​Rae Smith

3. Rock bottom? More like rock solid. 

“Bottom became the solid foundation on which I built my life.” — JK Rowling

4. Find comfort in the people around you.

“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”– Mother Teresa

5. This isn’t your forever.

“Hitting rock bottom doesn’t mean you have to stay there.”  — Michelle Parsons

6. Find your paradox.

“I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.” – Mother Teresa

7. You will grow from this.

“Strength

14 Inspirational Quotes From Mexican-American Celebrities In Celebration Of Cinco De Mayo

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Deeply inspiring words from some of the most influential and famous people in the world.

Cinco de Mayo, which means May 5 in Spanish, is the annual holiday commemorating the Mexican army’s victory against French forces at the Battle of Puebla.

The historic battle took place in 1862 during the Franco-Mexican War. And contrary to many believe, the significance of Cinco de Mayo is not that it is Mexico’s Independence Day — because it’s not. That holiday is held on September 16 (or dieciséis de Septiembre).

Although Cinco de Mayo is a rather small deal in Mexico, in the United States, it has become an extremely popular day for celebrating and enjoying Mexican-American culture and heritage.

People all over the country throw Cinco de Mayo parties with traditional Mexican beverages, food, and music.

And if you’re not in the mood for a party, it can also make for a fun date night as well.

For many people in the U.S., Cinco de Mayo is a great excuse to eat tacos and drink margaritas all day long (though personally, I would gladly have tacos and margaritas all year long).

However, Cinco de Mayo is first and foremost an opportunity to acknowledge and honor the contributions of Mexican-Americans and their cultural history.

America’s Hispanic or Latino population — defined by the U.S, Office of Management and Budget as “a person of Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin regardless of race” — is currently the largest minority in the United States.

Only Mexico has a larger Hispanic population than the United States, and as stated on Wikipedia: “Over 60% of the Hispanic and Latino population in the United States is of Mexican ancestry. The influence of Mexican and Mexican-American culture is felt throughout the country, with the epicenter of this influence located in the southwestern United States, including Texas, Nevada, Arizona and Southern California.”

So it only stands to reason that the number of well-known and beloved celebrities of Mexican descent is growing rapidly.

Mexican-American celebrities have shaped our culture and history through music, entertainment, art, literature, poetry, film, television, sports, activism, politics and more.

Whether they came to the U.S. as immigrants from Mexico or are native born Americans whose family heritage includes Mexican ancestry, these people have made a wealth of important contributions to the United States.

This year on Cinco de Mayo, …

15 Quotes Only People With Chronic Migraines Will Understand

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Quotes you can relate to on a personal level.

It’s easy to feel alone when you’re suffering from chronic migraines or another chronic health condition. Often, you’re going to doctor appointment after doctor appointment only to be told that there’s still no cure for your disease. You’ll have to keep suffering and managing your symptoms as best as you can.

But you’re never alone. In fact, according to the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics, 14.2 percent of all adults (ages 18 and older) reported having a migraine in 2012, and that number has increased with estimates reaching 18 percent in more recent years. This means that millions of Americans struggle with some of the same problems that you may face as someone with a chronic illness. 

Relating to someone’s struggles is a great way to connect and feel validated, so it’s important to remember that there’s always someone in the world who can understand at least a portion of what you’re going through. And quotes and memes can be effective means of relating to one another via the internet.


Whenever you’re feeling lonely or depressed because of your chronic illness, remember that listening to others’ experiences — and sharing your experiences with others — can improve your mood. 

Whether you’re looking for reassurance that everything will work out in the end, a good laugh to help you forget your pain or an excuse to wallow in self-pity for a while (yes, it’s OK sometimes), these 15 relatable quotes for people with chronic illness are perfect for you. They won’t make the pain go away or force your doctor to actually listen to you when you tell them you hurt EVERYWHERE, but they might make life a bit more bearable.

1. When you need a break.

Resting is not laziness, it’s medicine!” — Glenn Schweitzer

2. When you celebrate the little things.

“If opening your eyes, or getting out of bed, or holding a spoon, or combing your hair is the daunting Mount Everest you climb today, that is okay.” — Carmen Ambrosio

3. When you know you’re stronger for being sick.

“We are stronger in the places we have been broken.” — Ernest Hemingway

4. When you just have to accept your diagnosis.

“You can’t calm the storm, so stop trying. What you can do is calm yourself. The storm will pass.” — Timber Hawkeye

50 Ancient Quotes About Life And Love

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Let the wisdom of your ancestors help you master love and life.

Our ancestors had plenty to say about the way we speak, act and interact with the world, and it might be surprising to discover that some of their opinions are still relevant today. Though, they do say wisdom comes with age.

Ancient philosophers, scientists and writers may have lived a long time ago, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t have some of the same issues we do today. They often argued about politics, became embarrassed when expressing their emotions and wanted nothing more than to find love and acceptance. Therefore, listening to the people who walked the earth before us isn’t always a bad idea. Although a lot has changed since B.C.E. appeared after the date, we’re still humans who want to do the best we can in life and love. 


If you’re finding yourself unsatisfied with your life or needing inspiration to keep going, then delving deep into history can be incredibly rewarding. Ancient quotes about life and love sometimes just say things better than we can now in memes or even in modern art. Each quote seemed to be constructed so carefully that, even if you don’t understand it at first, you know it means something important

They’re the sayings you want tattooed on your skin, embroidered on your pillow and framed on your wall. They rekindle your desire for love and romance or remind you that relationships aren’t always easy. They tell you that you’re growing as a person and that the world is growing, too. They quell your worries and shape your ideas. They’re so accurate that it hurts, but you can’t get enough.

Each ancient quote about life and love can teach you something about yourself and the world that will stay with you for a long time. Hopefully, you find some new favorite quotes in this list of 50 ancient quotes about life and love that you need to hear.

1. What you say, and how you say it, is important.

“Do not say a little in many words but a great deal in few.” Pythagoras

2. You can never have enough books.

“A room without books is like a body without a soul.” — Marcus Tullius Cicero

25 Positive Thinking Quotes & Empowering Life Affirmations To Help You Stay Strong When Life Gets Hard

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Say it loud and proud.

When life gets tough, it is easy to start to feel defeated. It is in the exact moment that you start to feel this way that you have two choices to decide between.

Your first option is to give up and let the rough patch break you. Your second option is to hold your head up high and conquer whatever obstacle you are facing with a positive attitude. I would highly recommend choosing the second option.


If you are stuck wondering how to have a positive outlook when you don’t feel so good about where you are in life, use affirmations. An affirmation is defined as emotional support or encouragement and can be used as the foundation upon which you build a better version of yourself and your life overall. The more you repeat them, the more likely you are to believe them. Believing soon moves you to take the necessary actions to make the words change from just thoughts to reality.


An affirmation that I find myself saying throughout my day is “I love and approve of myself.” Saying it reminds me that I am comfortable in my own skin no matter what obstacles life throws my way to make me doubt that. It reminds me that as long as I support myself and my decisions, nothing else matters. I am good enough.

I found an affirmation that works for me, and I challenge you to do the same. Find an affirmation that keeps you going when life gets hard. Feed yourself that positive thought as many times as necessary to help you come out on top.
