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.
My education was paid for by the RAF Benevolent Fund, so a charity school, run like an orphanage, with uniforms and beatings. It was tough, but it got me to Cambridge - like being a chrysalis suddenly becoming a butterfly.
I do pool exercises, like weightlifting but underwater. I walk, I swim... I'm pretty fit for an old bloke.
A website can be very time-intensive, but I'd love to have one where people can contribute to it - like invent islands and make their own flags, and their own laws. I think that'd be kind of fun.
Life is a comedy when watching and a tragedy when experiencing. I try and share anything I have.
Nobody gets irony anymore, as we are now living in the post-ironic age. Once George Bush gets a library, our irony is dead.
People can tell the truth much more freely when they're apparently lying.
Americans like to think 'Python' is how English people really are. There is an element of truth to that.
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'.
You initially become funny as a kid because you're looking for attention and love. 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.
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.
Life took over 4 billion years to evolve into you, and you've about 70 more years to enjoy it. Don't just pursue happiness, catch it.
No day of my life passes without someone saying the words 'Monty Python' to me. It's not bad.
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.
We've discovered that the less we do, the more money we make.
To me, the musical is best when it's a musical comedy. So if you have a very, very funny show, and very good, funny songs, that's what the musical does best.
I'm more surprised than anyone that 'Spamalot's done so well. You can never predict what's going to be a hit.
I love my family, my wife, my kids, my dogs, my home, my life. I am a very happy and contented man.
John Cleese once told me he'd do anything for money. So I offered him a pound to shut up, and he took it.
I won't read scripts because I have a limited amount of time. Why should I help other people do lame stuff when I can just go out and put on lame stuff of my own?
I like the idea of being out there regularly with an audience and with a funny gang of people. That's what I grew up with - doing television, doing shows every week.
The Minister of Transport issued this appeal to motorists: Can anyone give him a lift to Leicester?
You look just like you!
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will make me go in a corner and cry by myself for hours.
