Chuck Jones Quote of the Day: Multiplications of our own Foibles

"All my characters in a way are like multiplications of our own foibles. And if they weren't, of course, they wouldn't be valuable at all, they wouldn't be funny. But I suspect that all humor is based on that fact: the recognition in others, in a multiplied form, of something that we ourselves are capable of. It's like george Orwell said, "I've never met a person that was any worse than I am."

–Chuck Jones, page 38, Stroke of Genius, A Collection of Paintings and Musings on Life, Love and Art
