Best Quotes by Stephen Fry (Top 10)

  1. If you know someone who's depressed, please resolve never to ask them why. Depression isn't a straightforward response to a bad situation; depression just is, like the weather. Try to understand the blackness, lethargy, hopelessness, and loneliness they're going through. Be there for them when they come through the other side. It's hard to be a friend to someone who's depressed, but it is one of the kindest, noblest, and best things you will ever do.
  2. It's not all bad. Heightened self-consciousness, apartness, an inability to join in, physical shame and self-loathing—they are not all bad. Those devils have been my angels. Without them I would never have disappeared into language, literature, the mind, laughter and all the mad intensities that made and unmade me.
  3. You are who you are when nobody's watching.
  4. An original idea. That can't be too hard. The library must be full of them.
  5. The only reason people do not know much is because they do not care to know. They are incurious. Incuriousity is the oddest and most foolish failing there is.
  6. Hell, I am young. I am free. My teeth are clean. The sun shines. To hell with everything else
  7. People who can change and change again are so much more reliable and happier than those who can't
  8. It is a cliche that most cliches are true, but then like most cliches, that cliche is untrue.
  9. Wine can be a better teacher than ink, and banter is often better than books
  10. Love in all eight tones and all five semitones of the word's full octave.
