You MUST mock

And aren’t we all tired of those who claim to know the answer to life, death and the creation being so fucking sensitive about their knowledge? If I knew the answer to it all, if I thought I understood the wishes of the author of the universe and was privileged to understand what happens to us after death, the last thing I would be is all prickly and defensive. ‘Mock me all you like,’ I’d cry. ‘Go on, laugh your socks off, paint crude daubs, make mocking films. They pass me by as the idle wind which I respect not.’

22 of the Best Stephen Fry Quotes Ever

22 Of The Best Stephen Fry Quotes Ever – Urban Times.

Stephen Fry is one of my heroes. My favourite out of these 22:

It’s now very common to hear people say, “I’m rather offended by that”. As if that gives them certain rights. It’s actually nothing more…than a whine. “I find that offensive.” It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. “I am offended by that.” Well, so fucking what.
