 Bill Cosby is a comic genius and seriously, a very intelligent one at that. I must confess. From Fat Albert to The Cosby Show and his hilarious talk with kids and standup routines, he has kept me rolling on the floor. Thanks goes to Brainy Quotes for these today. Enjoy…


  1. In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.
Bill Cosby 

2. No matter how calmly you try to referee, parenting will eventually produce bizarre behavior, and I’m not talking about the kids. Their behavior is always normal.
Bill Cosby 

3. Parents are not interested in justice, they’re interested in peace and quiet.
Bill Cosby

4. The past is a ghost, the future a dream, and all we ever have is now.
Bill Cosby

5. Women don’t want to hear what you think. Women want to hear what they think – in a deeper voice.
Bill Cosby

6. A new father quickly learns that his child invariably comes to the bathroom at precisely the times when he’s in there, as if he needed company. The only way for this father to be certain of bathroom privacy is to shave at the gas station.
Bill Cosby 

7. A word to the wise ain’t necessary – it’s the stupid ones that need the advice.
Bill Cosby 

8. Always end the name of your child with a vowel, so that when you yell the name will carry.
Bill Cosby

9. Decide that you want it more than you are afraid of it.
Bill Cosby

Happy Wednesday!

    I love Bill Cosby. My all time favorite, “How long can you tread water?” I have seen him in person several times. My kids grew up listen to my tapes. Another favorite is describing to a child how to take a shower. “Get in the shower. Turn the water on. Pick up the soap and rub it all over your body.” So fun.
