“I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be.”
– Groucho Marx
About Groucho Marx
Julius Henry “Groucho” Marx was the wisecracking central figure of the Marx Brothers comedy team, waggling his eyebrows in movies like Duck Soup and A Night at the Opera.
He was born in New York in 1890. His mother organized the family into a vaudeville act, which didn’t become successful until Groucho began ad-libbing jokes and insults.
In the forties and fifties, he hosted the wildly successful radio and TV quiz show You Bet Your Life. He died in 1977.
