The Wisdom Of Bill Cosby

  • Immortality is a long shot, I admit. But somebody has to be first.
  • Let us now set forth one of the fundamental truths about marriage: the wife is in charge.
  • Like everyone else who makes the mistake of getting older, I begin each day with coffee and obituaries.
  • My childhood should have taught me lessons for my own fatherhood, but it didn’t because parenting can only be learned by people who have no children.
  • No matter how calmly you try to referee, parenting will eventually produce bizarre behaviour, and I’m not talking about the kids. Their behaviour is always normal.
  • Old is always fifteen years from now.
  • Parents are not interested in justice, they’re interested in peace and quiet.
  • Poets have said that the reason to have children is to give yourself immortality. Immortality? Now that I have five children, my only hope is that they are all out of the house before I die.
  • Sex education may be a good idea in the schools, but I don’t believe the kids should be given homework.
  • That married couples can live together day after day is a miracle that the Vatican has overlooked.
  • Women don’t want to hear what you think. Women want to hear what they think – in a deeper voice.
  • You know the only people who are always sure about the proper way to raise children? Those who’ve never had any.
  • Always end the name of your child with a vowel, so that when you yell the name will  carry.
  • Human beings are the only creatures on earth that allow their children to come back  home.
  • Did  you ever see the customers in health – food stores? They are pale, skinny people  who look half-dead. In a steak house, you see robust, ruddy people. They’re  dying, of course, but they look terrific.
  • Fatherhood is pretending the present you love most is soap-on-a-rope.

    I absolutely LOVE Bill Cosby and quote him often…the one favorite quote of mine…
    “You aren’t really a parent if you only have one child because you always know who did it.”
    That may be paraphrased after all the years…
    just love him.

    Did you ever see the customers in health – food stores? They are pale, skinny people who look half-dead. In a steak house, you see robust, ruddy people. They’re dying, of course, but they look terrific. – This is the best!

    ‘Old is always fifteen years from now.’ – I hope it is at least twenty!
