Life Is Too Ironic To Understand

It is very strange that the years teach us patience that the shorter our time, the greater our capacity for waiting.

Life is too ironic. 
It takes sadness to know what happiness is, noise to appreciate silence, 
and absence to value presence!

Remember: the time you feel lonely is the time you most need to be by yourself. Life's cruelest irony.
- Douglas Coupland

That's the difference between irony and sarcasm. Irony can be spontaneous, while sarcasm requires volition. You have to create sarcasm. - Christopher Moore

The supreme irony of life is that hardly anyone gets out of it alive. - Robert A. Heinlein
