Psychologists think that’s all to do with mother abandonment. I think John Cleese has his depressions, and Terry Gilliam’s the same. All of us together make one completely insane person  (Eric Idle Quotes) Talent is always more interesting - ambition is not interesting. If you have talent, you have to find ways of expressing it, but you may not be a success in the world’s terms  (Eric Idle Quotes) Americans like to think ‘Python’ is how English people really are. There is an element of truth to that  (Eric Idle Quotes) John Cleese once told me he’d do anything for money. So I offered him a pound to shut up, and he took it  (Eric Idle Quotes) I like being a foreigner. For me, to live in California is very pleasant - I’m more comfortable not feeling a part of everything, not feeling responsible for the government or the roads or the health system  (Eric Idle Quotes) Pattycake, pattycake, baker’s man; good morning, madam, I’m a psychiatrist  (Eric Idle Quotes) The next step will be for the colonists on Mars to throw off the hand of the United States. There will be this wonderful historical irony. When the people on Mars write a declaration of independence saying, ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident...’, the US will be rather pissed off  (Eric Idle Quotes) I never think in terms of target audience. I try to write what makes me laugh, so I’m the target audience. I guess I just hope there’s another person in America like me  (Eric Idle Quotes) Reading Alan Zweibel makes me laugh out loud. And yet it is not a particularly funny name  (Eric Idle Quotes) My father, who was a sergeant in the RAF during the Second World War, was killed in a hitchhiking accident while returning home on compassionate leave. As a result, my mother had to get work, as a nurse, and at seven the RAF put me into a boarding school and ex-orphanage called the Royal Wolverhampton School  (Eric Idle Quotes) I love being an older comic now. It’s like being an old soccer or an old baseball player. You’re in the Hall of Fame and it’s nice, but you’re no longer that person in the limelight on the spot doing that thing  (Eric Idle Quotes) At least in America, you have freedom of speech, which is a good thing. It’s just a question of whether you’re allowed to use it on ‘Fox News’  (Eric Idle Quotes) Having little money to spend was a valuable learning experience. My schooling also shaped my work ethic because while other children were listening to the Goons, I was studying, which enabled me to go to Cambridge University  (Eric Idle Quotes) Monty Python only became valuable when it was sold to Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) in America. They didn’t pay much either, but the series has been shown repeatedly, which led to lucrative tapes, CDs and DVDs  (Eric Idle Quotes) Many years ago I also bought a house in Provence for about 70,000 francs. It had no electricity or running water, and no road leading to the house, but gradually we made improvements. It’s my escape and I love it  (Eric Idle Quotes) I love stage work. The thing about plays is that they’re perfectible. With film, you shoot that take and maybe another. During ‘Spamalot,’ I rewrote Act II three times  (Eric Idle Quotes) I have been very blessed in my life and rewarded with good friends and good health. I am grateful and happy to be able to share this.  (Eric Idle Quotes) Never do things for money. It’s always the things you do for love that turn out to pay the best.  (Eric Idle Quotes) Probably spending 12 years at boarding school - comedy became a survival gene. But I think some people are funny right off the bat, as soon as they can speak or be naughty.  (Eric Idle Quotes) Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will make me go in a corner and cry by myself for hours.  (Eric Idle Quotes) Executives do not on the whole do well with comedy. They can’t understand it, they can’t read it, they can’t spot it.  (Eric Idle Quotes) I love my family, my wife, my kids, my dogs, my home, my life. I am a very happy and contented man.  (Eric Idle Quotes)
