Woody Allen emerged as a popular comedian at the age of 15. His jokes published in a local paper fetched him about $200 per week, quite an amount for a teenager. However, this was just the beginning of a new success story. Comedian, musician, author, playwright, musician and an actor: there's nothing that Allen can't do? He is the guy who made monologues and stand-up comedy more famous than traditional jokes. Comedy Central ranks him fourth on the list of '100 Greatest Stand-Up Comedians of all Times'. After mastering slapstick comedies, he turned to European art cinema and New Hollywood. He's best known for his performances in 'Hanna and her sisters', 'Match Point', 'The Purple Rose of Cairo', 'Annie Hall' and 'Stardust Memories'. Today, he's the pride owner of nine British Academy of Film and TV awards and four Academy Awards. He was recognized for his funniest screenplays and Hollywood critic Roger Ebert termed him as the true treasure of Western cinema. Though his sense and style hasn't changed in last few years, he continues to inspire us with his views on filmmaking, arts and humor. We’ve collected some of Woody Allen's best quotes; some of them come from his films, while other quotes have been curated from his everyday life. Almost all of these Woody Allen quotes have to do with sex, death, or God, which are three of Allen’s favorite subjects.
