“How much better is silence; the coffee cup, the table. How much better to sit by myself like the solitary sea-bird that opens its wings on the stake. Let me sit here for ever with bare things, this coffee cup, this knife, this fork, things in themselves, myself being myself.” ― Virginia Woolf, The Waves
There are so many people who are trying hard to be funny, that genuine humor is really getting lost in translation. Simply knowing some funny things to say is not good enough, as their timing and application is far more important. Remember that sometimes, silence is funnier than some mindless words spoken in a bland attempt at humor.
