Laughter quotes
Laughter
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
To plunder, to slaughter, to steal, these things they misname empire; and where they make a wilderness, they call it peace.

- Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
Laughter gives us distance. It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it and then move on.

- Bob Newhart
No one is more profoundly sad as one who laughs too much.

- Paul, Jean
Let us have wine and women, mirth and laughter. Sermons and soda water the day after.

- Byron, Lord
Man is the only animal that laughs and weeps; for he is the only animal that is struck with the difference between what things are and what they might of been.

- Hazlitt, William
The malicious sneer is improperly called laughter.

- Goldsmith, Oliver
They have given us into the hand of new unhappy lords. Lords without anger and honor, who dare not carry their swords. They fight by shuffling papers; they have bright dead alien eyes; They look at our labor and laughter as a tired man looks at flies.

- Chesterton, Gilbert K.
Laughter is the closest distance between two people.

- Victor Borge
You can't deny laughter; when it comes, it plops down in your favorite chair and stays as long as it wants.

- Stephen King
Laughter is day, and sobriety is night; a smile is the twilight that hovers gently between both, more bewitching than either.

- Beecher, Henry Ward
Laughing is not always the proof of a mind at ease.

- Proverb, French
The same people who are murdered slowly in the mechanized slaughterhouses of work are also arguing, singing, drinking, dancing, making love, holding the streets, picking up weapons and inventing a new poetry.

- Vaneigem, Raoul
Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand.

- Twain, Mark
Laughter is the closest thing to the grace of God.

- Barth, Karl
A life without love in it is like a heap of ashes upon a deserted hearth, with the fire dead, the laughter stilled and the light extinguished.

- Tebbets, Frank
There is a grandeur in the uniformity of the mass. When a fashion, a dance, a song, a slogan or a joke sweeps like wildfire from one end of the continent to the other, and a hundred million people roar with laughter, sway their bodies in unison, hum one song or break forth in anger and denunciation, there is the overpowering feeling that in this country we have come nearer the brotherhood of man than ever before.

- Hoffer, Eric
I am persuaded that every time a man smiles, but much more so when he laughs, it adds something to this fragment of life.

- Sterne, Laurence
Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth, and danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings and while with silent lifting mind I've trod the high, untrespassed sanctity of space, put out my hand and touched the face of God.

- Magee, John Gillespie
Laughter can be more satisfying than honor; more precious than money; more heart-cleansing than prayer.

- Rochlin, Harriet
