Happy Monday Quotes #24: Laughter

The past couple months have been a little rocky on a few fronts, but one thing I’ve had in spades, thanks to friends, family and other favorites, is laughter. While my stomach is one of the ways to my and many others’ hearts, laughter is always the direct route to endearing all of me. In honor of all the one-liners, forwarded memes, impromptu stand-up routines, elaborate concept jokes and parody songs that just keep flowing in a steady, delightful stream, here are a few quotes on laughter.

“If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they’ll kill you.” — Oscar Wilde (from The Nightingale and the Rose)

“The earth laughs in flowers.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

“…it was her habit to build up laughter out of inadequate materials.” — John Steinbeck (from The Grapes of Wrath)

“There is a thin line that separates laughter and pain, comedy and tragedy, humor and hurt.” — Erma Bombeck

“Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can; all of them make me laugh.” — W.H. Auden
