I feel now it's useless to keep hoping. The way things are today, we live in a world that needs laughter, and I've decided if I can make people laugh, I'm making a more important contribution.
When I said I didn't have a cent, I didn't. I used to get annoyed with people who said they were broke when they had five dollars.

A closet full of wire hangers can be the most dangerous place in the world.
