„People say: «Why don't you give it up?» I don't think they quite understand. I'm not doing it just for the money, or for you. I'm doing it for me. “
— Keith Richards British rock musician, member of The Rolling Stones 1943
— Frida Kahlo Mexican painter 1907 - 1954
This is usually attributed to the Diary of Frida Kahlo, which does not contain the quotation. As explained on the Quote Investigator website http://quoteinvestigator.com/2016/01/28/flawed/, a postcard containing the quotation and a portion of a photo of Frida Kahlo was sent anonymously in 2008 to the PostSecret website, which posted a photo of the postcard, but the probable author was Becky Martin (Rebecca Katherine Martin). The actual quotation is: I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought, there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there you read this and know that yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.

„If you can say something that's funny or do something that's ridiculous, it'll make people laugh. So many people struggle with dark thoughts, depression, and internal pain. I'm not an expert on it, but I know that if I'm ever feeling down, if someone can make me laugh, it really is a cure to those thoughts.“

„I never want to do material that makes people laugh at the expense of making other people feel bad - not to say I'm not guilty of that at times. ...“
— Jim Gaffigan comedian, actor, author 1966
Context: I do kind of aspire to do comedy that appeals to a wide range of audiences and doesn't divide people. I never want to do material that makes people laugh at the expense of making other people feel bad - not to say I'm not guilty of that at times.... I try and make humor out of the really important issues of the day, like Hot Pockets and elevators and not wanting to get out of bed.
