Laughter quotes
Laughter
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.

- Joseph Addison
Sometimes the laughter in mothering is the recognition of the ironies and absurdities. Sometime, though, it's just pure, unthinking delight.

- Barbara Schapiro
Our generation, like the one before us, must choose. Without the threat of the Cold War, without the pain of economic ruin, without the fresh memory of World War II's slaughter, it is tempting to pursue our private agendas -- to simply sit back and let history unfold. We must resist the temptation.

- Clinton, Bill
Good laws lead to the making of better ones; bad ones bring about worse.

- Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Call a truce, then, to our labors -- let us feast with friends and neighbors, and be merry as the custom of our caste; for if faint and forced the laughter, and if sadness follow after, we are richer by one mocking Christmas past.

- Kipling, Rudyard
With the fearful strain that is on me night and day, if I did not laugh I should die.

- Lincoln, Abraham
I would not unduly praise the virtue of restraint. It is often merely temperamental. But it is not always a sign of coldness. It may be pride. There can be nothing more humiliating than to see the shaft of one's emotion miss the mark of either laughter or tears. Nothing more humiliating! And this for the reason that should the mark be missed, should the open display of emotion fail to move, then it must perish unavoidably in disgust or contempt.

- Conrad, Joseph
READING, n. The general body of what one reads. In our country it consists, as a rule, of Indiana novels, short stories in "dialect" and humor in slang. We know by one's reading His learning and breeding; By what draws his laughter We know his Hereafter. Read nothing, laugh never -- The Sphinx was less clever! Jupiter Muke

- Ambrose Bierce
In this life he laughs longest who laughs last.

- John Masefield
Laughter does not seem to be a sin, but it leads to sin.

- Chrysosatom, St. John
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
Laughter is to life what shock absorbers are to automobiles. It won't take the portholes out of the road, but it sure makes the ride smoother.

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

- Beecher, Henry Ward
The difference between an optimist and a pessimist? An optimist laughs to forget, but a pessimist forgets to laugh.

- Bodett, Tom
The shortest distance between two people is laughter.

The laughter of a man is the contentment of God.

- John Weiss
As long as our civilization is essentially one of property, of fences, of exclusiveness, it will be mocked by delusions. Our riches will leave us sick; there will be bitterness in our laughter; and our wine will burn our mouth. Only that good profits, which we can taste with all doors open, and which serves all men.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.

- e e cummings
The sound of laughter is like the vaulted dome of a temple of happiness.

- Kundera, Milan
Laughter is not at all a bad beginning for a friendship, and it is far the best ending for one.

- Wilde, Oscar
