A single death is a tragedy; a million deaths is a statistic.

Comedy is tragedy plus time.

Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot.

The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.

There are two tragedies in life. One is to lose your heart's desire. The other is to gain it.

Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you fall into an open sewer and die.
