Laughter quotes
Laughter
Laughter can be more satisfying than honor; more precious than money; more heart-cleansing than prayer.

- Rochlin, Harriet
Laughter is the closest distance between two people.

- Victor Borge
I can usually judge a fellow by what he laughs at.

- Mizner, Wilson
Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand.

- Twain, Mark
True humor springs not more from the head than from the heart. It is not contempt; its essence is love. It issues not in laughter, but in still smiles, which lie far deeper.

- Carlyle, Thomas
For I do not believe God means us thus to divide life into two halves - to wear a grave face on Sunday, and to think it out-of-place to even so much as mention Him on a week-day. Do you think He cares to see only kneeling figures and to hear only tones of prayer - and that He does not also love to see the lambs leaping in the sunlight, and to hear the merry voices of the children, as they roll amoung the hay? Surely their innocent laughter is as sweet in His ears as the grandest anthem that ever rolled up from the "dim religious light" of some solemn cathedral?

- Lewis Carroll
For a significant man woman, the one thought he values greatly, to the laughter and scorn of insignificant men, is a key to hidden treasure chambers; for those others, it is nothing but a piece of old iron.

- Friedrich Nietzsche
You grow up on the day you have your first real laugh at, yourself.

- Barrymore, Ethel
A good laugh is sunshine in the house.

- Thackeray, William M.
The best way to make your audience laugh is to start laughing yourself.

- Goldsmith, Oliver
SCRAP-BOOK, n. A book that is commonly edited by a fool. Many persons of some small distinction compile scrap-books containing whatever they happen to read about themselves or employ others to collect. One of these egotists was addressed in the lines following, by Agamemnon Melancthon Peters: Dear Frank, that scrap-book where you boast You keep a record true Of every kind of peppered roast That's made of you; Wherein you paste the printed gibes That revel round your name, Thinking the laughter of the scribes Attests your fame; Where all the pictures you arrange That comic pencils trace -- Your funny figure and your strange Semitic face -- Pray lend it me. Wit I have not, Nor art, but there I'll list The daily drubbings you'd have got Had God a fist.

- Ambrose Bierce
Total absence of humor renders life impossible.

- Colette
It is more fitting for a man to laugh at life than to lament over it.

- Seneca
If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have anything to laugh at when you're old.

- Edgar Watson Howe
The man who backbites an absent friend, nay, who does not stand up for him when another blames him, the man who angles for bursts of laughter and for the repute of a wit, who can invent what he never saw, who cannot keep a secret - that man is black at heart: mark and avoid him.

- Cicero
Any discussion of the problems of being funny in America will not make sense unless we substitute the word wit for humor. Humor inspires sympathetic good-natured laughter and is favored by the healing-power gang. Wit goes for the jugular, not the jocular, and it's the opposite of football; instead of building character, it tears it down.

- King, Florence
The more laws, the more offenders.

- Fuller, Thomas
Good Friday, Easter Day, and Ascension, are set as great lights in the firmament of the spiritual year;--to remind us that we are not animals born to do what we like, and fulfil the simple lusts of the flesh--but that we are rational moral beings, members of Christ, children of God, and inheritors of the kingdom of heaven, and that, therefore, like Christ, we must die in order to live, stoop in order to conquer. They remind us that honour must grow out of humility; that freedom must grow out of discipline; that sure conquest must be born of heavy struggles; righteous joy out of righteous sorrow; pure laughter out of pure tears; true strength out of the true knowledge of our own weakness; sound peace of mind out of sound contrition.

- All Saints' Day Sermons. 1871.
Learn from the earliest days to insure your principles against the perils of ridicule; you can no more exercise your reason if you live in the constant dread of laughter, than you can enjoy your life if you are in the constant terror of death.

- Sydney Smith
From the moment I picked up your book until I laid it down, I was convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it.

- Groucho Marx
