Stephen Fry's quotes

  • The e-mail of the species is more deadly than the mail.
  • How can one not be fond of something that the "Daily Mail" despises?
  • It is quite difficult to feel that I am placed somewhere between Alan Bennett and the Queen Mother, a sort of public kitten.
  • On being gay: "My first words, as I was being born... I looked up at my mother and said, 'that's the last time I'm going up one of those.'"
  • It only takes a room of Americans for the English and Australians to realise how much we have in common.
  • "Comedy always goes up and down but this year's been great. Comedy is immensely strong right now, with the Green Wing (2004) and Nighty Night (2004)." (Speaking in 2005)
  • "Complete loose-stool-water. Arse-gravy of the very worst kind." (Speaking about Dan Brown's novel, "The Da Vinci Code.")
  • My father was all brain and little heart.
  • As someone who worked hard for a Labour victory in the Nineties, do I regret it? Not really. It was bound to happen. And it'll happen with the next government, and the one after it. Because all governments serve us. They serve the filth.
  • I sometimes wonder if you Americans aren't often fooled by our accent into detecting a brilliance that may not really be there.
  • When American TV and movies call for a twist of limey in their cocktail, it's usually a character they're after - supervillain, emotionally constipated academic, effete eccentric, that kind of thing.
  • Generally, we admire the thing we are not. On the set of Bones (2005) I have been amazed and impressed by the naturalness of the cast, and berate myself for sounding as if I'm speechifying instead of talking.
  • Digital devices rock my world.
  • It is true that I have a great admiration, sometimes only just short of reverence, for the elegances and brilliances that have emerged from my favourite address in the world: 1 Infinite Loop, Cupertino, California, the home of Apple Computers.
  • John Cleese said to me years ago that "you will never be happy unless you stop being so polite. I have spent much of my life trying to please people, trying to be what they wanted me to be rather than what I actually wanted to be.
  • I grew up in what seems now to me and to most cultural and broadcast historians to have been a golden age in television.
  • There is as far as I know no profession in this country that likes to talk about itself more than broadcasting.
  • Happiness is no respecter of persons.
  • It is a cliché that most clichés are true, but then, like most clichés, that cliché is untrue.
  • Inevitable George Entwistle would fall on his sword. Damned for stopping a Newsnight (1980), damned for allowing one. A kind, wise man. Heigh ho.
  • Will we never learn? Who knows? Religion. Shit it.
  • Most sodomy, most anal intercourse takes place between men and women.
  • [on the death of Peter O'Toole] Oh what terrible news. Farewell Peter O'Toole. I had the honour of directing him in a scene. Monster, scholar, lover of life, genius.
  • Homophobia is still a world problem. Homosexuality isn't and never has been. Homosexuals are not interested in making other people homosexual. Homophobics are interested in making other people homophobic.
  • I have a great interest in zoology. There are 480 species of animal that exhibit homosexual behaviour but only one species of animal on earth that exhibits homophobic behaviour. So which is normal?
  • What is the point of the Catholic Church if it says, "We didn't know better because nobody else did?" Then what are you for?
  • Gosh. Elliott G Spencer and I go into a room as two people, sign a book and leave as one. Amazing.
  • [on homosexual marriage] It really makes a difference to know that one is conjoined in a legal way.
  • My poor husband has to put up with the fact that BAFTA comes first.
  • It has a new meaning when it's the 'we' in 'wed'.
  • The day life has so little to offer that I read the next Shirley MacLaine book, disembowel me.
  • Self-pity will fulfill all the prophecies it makes and leaves only itself.
  • Seriousness is no more a guarantee of truth, insight, authenticity or probity, than humor is a guarantee of superficiality and stupidity.
  • I was in Utah, and this Mormon Tour guide was going on about how Heaven is great because you will be reunited with your Family. So I said "Yes, but I HATED my Family!" and I was thrown out.
  • Books are no more threatened by Kindle than stairs by elevators.
  • [on Jenny Beavan] Only one of the great cinematic costume designers would come to an awards ceremony dressed as a bag lady.
