Hugh Laurie Quotes.

11. "Humility was a cult in my family. I only got it out of my father by accident when he was very old that he had won an Olympic gold medal."
- Quote by Hugh Laurie

12. "It's a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you're ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There's almost no such thing as ready. There's only now. And you may as well do it now. I mean, I say that confidently as if I'm about to go bungee jumping or something--I'm not. I'm not a crazed risk taker. But I do think that, generally speaking, now is as good a time as any."
- Quote by Hugh Laurie

13. "People choose the paths that grant them the greatest rewards for the least amount of effort. That's the law of nature, and you defied it."
- Quote by Hugh Laurie

14. "So unless we’re going to get down on our knees and give thanks every time disaster misses, it makes no sense to moan when it strikes. Us, or anyone else. Because we’re not comparing it with anything. And anyway, we’re all dead, or never born, and the whole thing really is a dream. There, you see. That’s a funny side."
- Quote by Hugh Laurie

15. "I had too many things to say, and too small a brain to sort them out with."
- Quote by Hugh Laurie

16. "I saw a man this morning Who did not wish to die" Patrick Shaw-Stewart"
- Quote by Hugh Laurie

17. "The first item was fighting under the name ‘Crostini of Mealed Tarroce, with Benatore Potatoes' and weighed in at an impressive twelve pounds sixty-five. The Ralph Lauren blonde came over and asked me if I needed any help with the menu, and I asked her to explain what potatoes were. She didn't laugh."
- Quote by Hugh Laurie

18. "Acabé por encontrar un taxi y le dije al taxista en mi mejor inglés que quería ir a la plaza de Wenceslao. Esta solicitud, ahora ya lo sé, es fonéticamente idéntica a la frase checa que significa: «Soy un turista imbécil, por favor, quédese con todo lo que tengo.» El coche era un Tatra, y el taxista un cabrón; conducía rápido y bien, y tarareaba alegremente por lo bajo, como un hombre que acaba de acertar una quiniela... Cuando el conductor me dijo cuánto dinero quería, dediqué varios minutos a explicarle que no quería comprarle el taxi; sólo quería pagar los quince minutos que había pasado a bordo. Me dijo que había contratado una limusina, o al menos dijo «limusina» y se encogió de hombros, y finalmente aceptó reducir sus exigencias a una cantidad meramente astronómica. Recogí mi maleta y comencé a caminar."
- Quote by Hugh Laurie

19. "We want different things. Men want to have sex with a woman. Then they want to have sex with another woman. And then another. Then they want to eat cornflakes and sleep for a while, and then they want to have sex with another woman, and another, until they die. Women,’ and I thought I’d better pick my words a little more carefully when describing a gender I didn’t belong to, ‘want a relationship. They may not get it, or they may sleep with a lot of men before they do get it, but ultimately that’s what they want. That’s the goal. Men don’t have goals. Natural ones. So they invent them, and put them at either end of a football pitch. And then they invent football. Or they pick fights, or try and get rich, or start wars, or come up with any number of daft bloody things to make up for the fact that they have no real goals."
- Quote by Hugh Laurie

20. "Death and disaster are at our shoulders every second of our lives, trying to get at us. Missing, a lot of the time. A lot of miles on the motorway without a front wheel blow-out. A lot of viruses that slither through our bodies without snagging. A lot of pianos that fall a minute after we've passed. Or a month, it makes no difference. So unless were going to get down on our knees and give thanks every time disaster misses, it makes no sense to moan when it strikes."
- Hugh Laurie, The Gun Seller
