I hate menus, I hate choosing food. I just want to be brought. Bring me dinner!

People will survive, and they ...

People will survive, and they will find happiness. Happiness only comes when you're not looking for it.

Hugh Laurie 146 quotes

I admit I can't shake the idea...

I admit I can't shake the idea that there is virtue in suffering, that there is a sort of psychic economy, whereby if you embrace success, happiness and comfort, these things have to be paid for.

I just read an 800-page history of the Scottish Enlightenment and, honestly, I may as well just start it again now, because I cannot remember a single thing. I can barely remember where Scotland is.

You hope that your teenage self would like and forgive your 50-year-old self.

Some people are drawn naturally - there are natural guitarists, and there are natural piano players, and I think guitar implies travel, a sort of footloose gypsy existence. You grab your bag and you go to the next town.

In books, day breaks, and nigh...

In books, day breaks, and night falls. In life, night rises from the ground. The day hangs on for as long as it can, bright and eager, absolutely and positively the last guest to leave the party, while the ground darkens, oozing night around your ankles, swallowing for ever that dropped contact lens, making you miss that low catch in the gully on the last ball of the last over.

Humility was considered a grea...

Humility was considered a great virtue in my family household. No show of complacency or self-satisfaction was ever tolerated. Patting yourself on the back was definitely not encouraged, and pleasure or pride would be punishable by death.

I don't believe in God, but I have this idea that if there were a God, or destiny of some kind looking down on us, that if he saw you taking anything for granted he'd take it away.

Having a vote once every four years is not the same thing as democracy.

Hugh Laurie 146 quotes

She turned towards me and narr...

She turned towards me and narrowed her eyes...narrowed them horizontally, not vertically.

Now, my mom always said two wrongs don't make a right. But she never said anything about four wrongs, and that always left me confused.

Hugh Laurie 146 quotes

Success on a cosmic level comp...

Success on a cosmic level completely eludes me. I'm deeply suspicious of things being too good. It's part of my superstition, I think, to generate pain in order to give the illusion of gain. I'm not saying I reject success, but honestly, I don't quite know how to deal with it. It's an old feeling: As soon as you have the thing you've been going after all your life, that reasonable degree of security, you start kicking against it, doubting it.

It is the middle of December now, and we are about to travel to Switzerland - where we plan to ski a little, relax a little, and shoot a Dutch politician a little.

This was the tricky bit. The really tricky bit, trickiness cubed.

Hugh Laurie 146 quotes

People are more open about seeking help these days. They recognise the fact that the alternative to having a shrink is that you bore your friends stupid. So I figured that I might as well give someone 100 bucks an hour to hear my woes. At least someone can make a living out of listening to my tedious problems.

I know a lot of people think therapy is about sitting around staring at your own navel - but it's staring at your own navel with a goal. And the goal is to one day to see the world in a better way and treat your loved ones with more kindness and have more to give.

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.

Happiness is the twinkle in your grandmother's eye as you reverse the tractor off her legs.

Hugh Laurie 146 quotes

I think maybe even one of the reasons I became an actor was actually to hide. I mean, it sounds paradoxical because, of course, people are standing up in a public place and encouraging other people to look at them. So that's not the conventional definition of hiding.
