Popular quotes can serve both as a reminder of humility, a source of humor and a catalyst of inspiration. That being said, though I may inject some sincerity from time to time this post is meant to be a beacon of hilarity in your otherwise humorless day.

In an effort to bring you a more hilarious (and focused) set of quotes on a weekly basis I’ll now be bringing you a set of hilarious quotes from societies’ most revered loud mouths, one funny person at a time. Today we tackle the late Richard Pryor, actor, husband, 5 time Grammy award winner, and most notably a stand-up comedy legend. Mentioned here on Guyism before, Pryor was one of the greats and for that we salute him today!
