Citações Stephen Colbert

„Agnostics are just atheists without balls.“

—  Stephen Colbert, livro I Am America (And So Can You!)

Fonte: I Am America

„I would say laughter is the best medicine. But it’s more than that. It’s an entire regime of antibiotics and steroids.“

—  Stephen Colbert

Entertainment Weekly interview http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20006490,00.html (4 January 2007)
Contexto: I would say laughter is the best medicine. But it’s more than that. It’s an entire regime of antibiotics and steroids. Laughter brings the swelling down on our national psyche, and then applies an antibiotic cream... Obviously, it’s a challenge to make light of the darkness but, um, it’s better than crying about it.

„He wants to do the right thing but has none of the tools to achieve it. Because he has no curiosity, he doesn't like to read and he won't listen anybody, except the voices in his head.“

—  Stephen Colbert

On his character in The Colbert Report in an interview on Larry King Live (11 October 2007) http://www.cnn.com/CNN/Programs/larry.king.live/
Contexto: We worked very hard to keep him from being a jerk by keeping in mind he's well intentioned. Just poorly informed. He wants to do the right thing but has none of the tools to achieve it. Because he has no curiosity, he doesn't like to read and he won't listen anybody, except the voices in his head.

„Truthiness is tearing apart our country“

—  Stephen Colbert

AV Club interview http://www.avclub.com/article/stephen-colbert-13970, (25 January 2006)
Contexto: Truthiness is tearing apart our country, and I don't mean the argument over who came up with the word. I don't know whether it's a new thing, but it's certainly a current thing, in that it doesn't seem to matter what facts are. It used to be, everyone was entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts. But that's not the case anymore. Facts matter not at all. Perception is everything. It's certainty. People love the president because he's certain of his choices as a leader, even if the facts that back him up don't seem to exist. It's the fact that he's certain that is very appealing to a certain section of the country. I really feel a dichotomy in the American populace. What is important? What you want to be true, or what is true?

„In the media age, everybody was famous for 15 minutes. In the Wikipedia age, everybody can be an expert in five minutes.“

—  Stephen Colbert

Wired Magazine article http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/14.08/colbert.html (14 August 2006)
Contexto: Get your own entry in an encyclopedia... In the media age, everybody was famous for 15 minutes. In the Wikipedia age, everybody can be an expert in five minutes. Special bonus: You can edit your own entry to make yourself seem even smarter.

„Answer honestly… Disabuse me of my ignorance.“

—  Stephen Colbert

On how he would recommend Colbert Report guests approach interviews, on A Conversation with Stephen Colbert (1 December 2006).
Contexto: Answer honestly... Disabuse me of my ignorance. Don’t let me get away with anything. Don’t try to play my game. Be real. Be passionate. Hold your ideas. Give me resistance. Give me traction I can work against. The friction between reality, or the truly held concerns of the person, and the farcical concerns that I have, or my need to seem important, as opposed to actually understanding what’s true... Where those two things meet is where the comedy happens. So be real. That's the best thing you can do. And call me on my bullshit.

„If you don't give power to the words that people throw at you to hurt you, they don't hurt you anymore — and you actually have power over those people.“

—  Stephen Colbert

Stephen Colbert - It Gets Better (13 July 2011) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BThRZbCs-p8
Contexto: If you don't give power to the words that people throw at you to hurt you, they don't hurt you anymore — and you actually have power over those people. … So, if you can, realize that the things that people say about you — they don't really matter — it's who you are. And the older you get, the more you'll understand that — because it gets better. And people get nicer too.

„Language has always been important in politics, but language is incredibly important to the present political struggle.“

—  Stephen Colbert

New York Magazine interview http://nymag.com/news/politics/22322/ (16 October 2006)
Contexto: Language has always been important in politics, but language is incredibly important to the present political struggle. Because if you can establish an atmosphere in which information doesn't mean anything, then there is no objective reality. The first show we did, a year ago, was our thesis statement: What you wish to be true is all that matters, regardless of the facts. Of course, at the time, we thought we were being farcical.

„I don't perceive my role as a newsman at all. I'm a comedian from stem to stern.“

—  Stephen Colbert

When asked what he perceives his role to be, given that many young people claim to get their news from The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, on newsman. "Harvard University: A Conversation with Stephen Colbert" http://ksgaccman.harvard.edu/iop/events_forum_video.asp?ID=3051 (1 December 2006).
Contexto: I don't perceive my role as a newsman at all. I'm a comedian from stem to stern. You can cut me open and count the rings of jokes. If people learn something about the news by watching the show, that is incidental to my goal.

„And then I'm weak. As much as I want to make the audience laugh, I really want to make Jon laugh.“

—  Stephen Colbert

Entertainment Weekly interview http://www.jerriblank.com/colbert_ew.html, August 13, 2004, on his character break during the infamous Prince Charles sketch on The Daily Show.
Contexto: Such a proud moment of professionalism. You work for years crafting cogent satirical essays and the thing that everybody remembers is me making love to a Chiquita and bursting into laughter. What you can't see off camera is Jon started laughing first. And then I'm weak. As much as I want to make the audience laugh, I really want to make Jon laugh.

„Of course, at the time, we thought we were being farcical.“

„I refuse to believe it's not butter.“

—  Stephen Colbert

White House Correspondents' Association Dinner (2006)
Contexto: I believe it's yogurt, but I refuse to believe it's not butter.
