Giving voice to uneasy secrets most of us hold, genuine comedy cloaks wisdom as “comic relief.” On the death of funny-man Jerry Stiller, NBC news recalled a quote which should be our Creed for Human Relations and World Peace. Regarding Anne Meara, his wife for over sixty years—if memory serves—Jerry said, she’s “not hard to live with. You just have to put up with her.”
It’s about patience! Respecting others. Life will be so much easier if we remember Jerry Stiller and just “put up with” them.
