The man that loves and laughs must sure do well. - Alexander Pope

The man who laughs has simply not yet had the terrible news. - Bertolt Brecht

The only medicine that needs no prescription, has no unpleasant taste, and costs no money is laughter. - Evan Esar

The problem is that we live in an uptight country. Why don't we just laugh at ourselves? We are funny. Gays are funny. Straights are funny. Women are funny. Men are funny. We are all funny, and we all do funny things. Let's laugh about it. - Bob Newhart

The salvation of the world depends on the men whose laughter destroys the fool instead of encouraging him. - George Bernard Shaw

There is laughter that goes so far as to lose all touch with its motive, and to exist only, grossly, in itself. This is laughter at its best. A man to whom such laughter has often been granted may happen to die in a work-house. No matter. I will not admit that he has failed in life. Another man, who has never laughed thus, may be buried in Westminster Abbey, leaving more than a million pounds overhead. What then? I regard him as a failure. - Max Beerbohm

There is nothing [that] disarms us like laughter. - Henri Bergson

To laugh is proper to man. - Francois Rabelais

When a person can no longer laugh at himself, it is time for others to laugh at him. - Thomas Szasz

With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come. - William Shakespeare

Without laughter life on our planet would be intolerable. So important is laughter to us that humanity highly rewards members of one of the most unusual professions on earth, those who make a living by inducing laughter in others. This is very strange if you stop to think of it: that otherwise sane and responsible citizens should devote their professional energies to causing others to make sharp, explosive barking-like exhalations. - Steve Allen

You can turn painful situations around through laughter. If you can find humour in anything, even poverty, you can survive it. - Bill Cosby

You can't deny laughter; when it comes, it plops down in your favourite chair and stays as long as it wants. - Stephen King
