Laughter quotes

Sorrow is better than laughter, for by the sadness of the face the heart is made better.

- Bible

I always knew I would look back at the times I'd cried and laugh, but I never knew that I'd look back at the times I'd laughed and cry.

- Prowdzik, Shaun

Good laws lead to the making of better ones; bad ones bring about worse.

- Rousseau, Jean Jacques

And in the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter and the sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.

- Kahlil Gibran

There is a form of laughter that springs from the heart, heard every day in the merry voice of childhood, the expression of a laughter -- loving spirit that defies analysis by the philosopher, which has nothing rigid or mechanical in it, and totally without social significance. Bubbling spontaneously from the heart of child or man. Without egotism and full of feeling, laughter is the music of life.

- Osler, Sir William

Colonial system, public debts, heavy taxes, protection, commercial wars, etc., these offshoots of the period of manufacture swell to gigantic proportions during the period of infancy of large-scale industry. The birth of the latter is celebrated by a vast, Hero-like slaughter of the innocents.

- Marx, Karl

If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian.

- Paul McCartney

The more laws, the more offenders.

- Fuller, Thomas

I quickly laugh at everything for fear of having to cry.

- Beaumarchais, Pierre De

The malicious sneer is improperly called laughter.

- Goldsmith, Oliver

Laughter, while it lasts, slackens and unbraces the mind, weakens the faculties and causes a kind of remissness and dissolution in all the powers of the soul; and thus it may be looked on as weakness in the composition of human nature. But if we consider the frequent reliefs we receive from it and how often it breaks the gloom which is apt to depress the mind and damp our spirits, with transient, unexpected gleams of joy, one would take care not to grow too wise for so great a pleasure of life.

- Joseph Addison

I think that wherever your journey takes you, there are new gods waiting there, with divine patience -- and laughter.

- Susan M. Watkins

Laughter kills fear, and without fear there can be no faith. For without fear of the devil there is no need for God.

- Connery, Sean

Total absence of humor renders life impossible.

- Colette

Laughter is inner jogging.

- Norman Cousins

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

If you can laugh at it then you can live with it


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 does not seem to be a sin, but it leads to sin.

- Chrysosatom, St. John

I was irrevocably betrothed to laughter, the sound of which has always seemed to me to be the most civilized music in the world.

- Peter Ustinov
