“Have you ever had a cookie? Then you won’t get any here either.”

 

Bill Cosby

“The mother may be doing ninety percent of the disciplining, but the father still must have a full-time acceptance of all the children. He never must say, “Get these kids out of here; I’m trying to watch TV.” If he ever does start saying this, he is liable to see one of his kids on the six o’clock news.”

 

Bill Cosby

“When we look at the settling of America we see a Bible in hand and God. Every Thanksgiving has God and the peacefulness of gratitude. It was important when the Twin Towers were hit and the sorrow with them that the first thing Congress did was sing “God Bless America.””

 

Bill Cosby

“When my son was murdered people asked me how I felt about God and what had happened to my son. I said “no, you can’t go there. You have to understand that there is a devil and he works 24/7. Whoever murdered our son was with the devil.””

 

Bill Cosby

“I think the part of media that romanticizes criminal behavior, things that a person will say against women, profanity, being gangster, having multiple children with multiple men and women and not wanting to is prevalent. When you look at the majority of shows on television they placate that kind of behavior. If you go through a weekly Monday through Friday, it’s all there. It’s in how people on the sitcoms and cop shows talk to each other.”

 

Bill Cosby

“There should be more on television that uplifts people and shows them how to better prepare themselves for earning a living. There still aren’t enough people that say “this should not be.” We just let it go. We need to raise a loud voice about our fellow human beings.”

 

Bill Cosby

“My latest blood test said my cholesterol was very high and my doctor recommended some medicine for it. I said “no” to his recommendation and he said “what are you going to do?” I said I ate my way into this and I’m going to eat my way out of it.”

 

Bill Cosby

“If you have no faith, you’ve lost your battle. You can’t let things just happen. If you know right from wrong, and you know proof that certain things are true and people are telling you information to guide you and it’s good solid information, than you should have it.”

 

Bill Cosby

“There are stories in the Bible about people telling other people how to do things. When you hear this young man say “we don’t give up,” that’s something human beings who win will tell you every time. Breaks will happen. When they happen, you keep the same mind about what you’re doing. It’s about we the people getting on with our lives and doing it that way.”

 

Bill Cosby

“In Genesis, it is stated God walked on Earth. He was there on the level. After watching human behavior, he ascended having had enough of us and decided to watch over us instead.”

 

Bill Cosby

“You know my father’s favorite game? Come here and pull my finger.”

“Every romance does not lead to sex.”

 

Bill Cosby

“I’m a Christian. But Muslims are misunderstood. Intentionally misunderstood. We should all be more like them.”

 

Bill Cosby

“Among the guitarists, Wes Montgomery is fantastic. He’s always good to let you know what the art form is all about. It’s the same still life that everybody is painting, but in comes Wes Montgomery, and it’s right there!”

 

Bill Cosby

“On many young actors that don’t give their parents proper credit: I’m still waiting for some actor to win, say, an Oscar… and deliver the following acceptance speech: I would like to thank my parents, first of all, for letting me live.”

 

Bill Cosby

“We go out of our way to make people so different,… to punish them because of color, because of sex, because of size, and the game starts.”

 

Bill Cosby

“And to those people with no children but who think they’d like to have them some day to fulfill their lives. Remember: With fulfillment comes responsibility.”

 

Bill Cosby

“Brown versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person’s problem.”

 

Bill Cosby

“My dad came over to the house… went into his pocket and pulled out a handful of money, and began to pass it out to the children… This was the same man who, when I was his child, I would ask him for 50 cents, this man would tell me his life’s story.”

 

Bill Cosby

“The first time I came across the birds and the bees in actual flight, I couldn’t identify the formation.”
