Laughter quotes by N.D. Wilson
#1. Lay your life down. Your heartbeats cannot be hoarded. Your reservoir of breaths is draining away. You have hands, blister them while you can. You have bones, make them strain-they can carry nothing in the grave. You have lungs, let them spill with laughter. With an average life expectancy of 78.2 years in the US (subtracting eight hours a day for sleep), I have around 250,00 conscious hours remaining to me in which I could be smiling or scowling, rejoicing in my life, in this race, in this story, or moaning and complaining about my troubles. I can be giving my fingers, my back, my mind, my words, my breaths, to my wife and my children and my neighbors, or I can grasp after the vapor and the vanity for myself, dragging my feet, afraid to die and therefore afraid to live. And, like Adam, I will still die in the end. #Quote by N.D. Wilson
Laughter quotes by Terry Wogan
#2. "I'm glad there's been so much laughter in the audience tonight."
"But they're not laughing with you. They're laughing at you." #Quote by Terry Wogan
Laughter quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#3. Life is too hard to maintain a constantly serious outlook. You have to laugh at yourself and the world now and then―see humor in undesirable circumstances, even harsh situations―or you will either rot from the inside or go stark-raving mad. Humor is power against the worst oppression. It lightens heavy burdens; it allows one to smile while in agony; it eases excruciating pains. In short, humor makes the intolerable tolerable. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Laughter quotes by Mary Wortley Montagu
#4. I have often observ'd the loudest Laughers to be the dullest Fellows in the Company. #Quote by Mary Wortley Montagu
Laughter quotes by David Foster Wallace
#5. The night-noises of the metro night: harbor-wind skirling on angled cement, the shush and sheen of overpass traffic, TPs' laughter in interior rooms, the yowl of unresolved cat-life. Horns blatting off in the harbor. Receding sirens. Confused inland gulls' cries. Broken glass from far away. Car horns in gridlock, arguments in languages, more broken glass, running shoes, a woman's either laugh or scream from who can tell how far, coming off the grid. Dogs defending whatever dog-yards they pass by, the sounds of chains and risen hackles. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Laughter quotes by Stjepan Varesevac Cobets
#6. The dragon sat up on his hind legs and swung wide his large wings. Fire sparked and ashes scattered in the air, whirling around Joseph and his friends. While they protected their eyes from the ashes and sparks, they heard the dragon's loud laughter that could freeze the bravest man's heart and the blood in his veins. "Ha, ha, ha, you have not disturbed me at all! It's just time for my lunch, and my lunch will be you! #Quote by Stjepan Varesevac Cobets
Laughter quotes by Lord Chesterfield
#7. Horse-play, romping, frequent and loud fits of laughter, jokes, and indiscriminate familiarity, will sink both merit and knowledge into a degree of contempt. They compose at most a merry fellow; and a merry fellow was never yet a respectable man. #Quote by Lord Chesterfield
Laughter quotes by Veronica Roth
#8. I have something I need to tell you," he says. I run my fingers along the tendons in his hands and look back at him. "I might be in love with you." He smiles a little. "I'm waiting until I'm sure to tell you, though."
"That's sensible of you," I say, smiling too. "We should find some paper so you can make a list or a chart or something."
I feel his laughter against my side, his nose sliding along my jaw, his lips pressing my ear.
"Maybe I'm already sure," he says, "and I just don't want to frighten you."
I laugh a little. "Then you should know better."
"Fine," he says. "Then I love you. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Laughter quotes by Dianna Hardy
#9. Always. There is always time for jokes. As my father would say, humour is the spark that lights every dark. #Quote by Dianna Hardy
Laughter quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#10. What a force is laughter. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Laughter quotes by Bill Vaughan
#11. Money won't buy happiness, but it will pay the salaries of a huge research staff to study the problem. #Quote by Bill Vaughan
Laughter quotes by Socrates
#12. The comic and the tragic lie inseparably close, like light and shadow. #Quote by Socrates
Laughter quotes by Christina M. Ward
#13. paint the pony I will ride
soft hues that gather childhood
and thrust forward, to nowhere

back again, we turn
to plunking calliope tune
loud, round notes, we lift higher

hollowed ponies with painted ribbons
between our thighs,
laughter in her eyes

-- from 'Paint the Dancing Pony' (a poem) #Quote by Christina M. Ward
Laughter quotes by Philip K. Dick
#14. You know what the doctor said to me to cheer me up?" Fat said. "There are worse diseases than cancer."
"Did he show you slides?"
We both laughed. When you are nearly crazy with grief, you laugh at what you can. #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Laughter quotes by Percy Bysshe Shelley
#15. I am convinced that there can be no regeneration of mankind until laughter is put down. #Quote by Percy Bysshe Shelley
Laughter quotes by Aleksandr Voinov
#16. And so he sat, waited in the silent night, occasionally checkin his watch to stay awake, and letting his mind wanter once more. Across the decades, across the countries and across the wars. His family, his friends, the sex he'd shared and the love he'd known. Lust and laughter, anger and jealousy, and a thousand other things, and he smiled in the end. If they got him this time, at least he had lived and he regretted nothing. (Dan) #Quote by Aleksandr Voinov
Laughter quotes by Ted Loder
#17. Laughter is a holy thing. It is as sacred as music and silence
and solemnity, maybe more sacred. Laughter is like a prayer, like
a bridge over which creatures tiptoe to meet each other. Laughter
is like mercy; it heals. When you can laugh at yourself, you are
free. #Quote by Ted Loder
Laughter quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#18. Unless comedy touches me as well as amuses me, it leaves me with a sense of having wasted my evening. I go to the theatre to be moved to laughter, not to be tickled or bustled into it. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Laughter quotes by Tom Robbins
#19. It was laughter that might have been squeezed from the tubes of his own darkest heart, then amplified fifty times through the bellows of a loon's ass. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Laughter quotes by Rajneesh
#20. If you become silent after your laughter, one day you will hear God also laughing, you will hear the whole existence laughing - trees and stones and stars with you. #Quote by Rajneesh
Laughter quotes by Kate Evangelista
#21. Protect that girl, Balthazar. She is an innocent in all of this."
"Why does she want Nikolas to gain his humanity?"
"She believes they are in love."
The absurdity of D's words hit Balthazar square in the gut. He would have doubled over if he didn't find the reason pathetic. Thankfully, he managed to keep the laughter in his head.
"Love? Nikolas? #Quote by Kate Evangelista
Laughter quotes by Walt Disney
#22. Laughter is no enemy to learning #Quote by Walt Disney
Laughter quotes by Himmilicious
#23. Anything that makes you laugh, giggle or smile.. Do it again.. #Quote by Himmilicious
Laughter quotes by Nikolai Gogol
#24. For public opinion does not admit that lofty rapturous laughter is worthy to stand beside lofty lyrical emotion and that there isall the difference in the world between it and the antics of a clown at a fair. #Quote by Nikolai Gogol
Laughter quotes by Viet Thanh Nguyen
#25. Time howled in my ear, screaming with laughter at the idea that we could control it with wristwatches, alarm clocks, revolutions, history. #Quote by Viet Thanh Nguyen
Laughter quotes by Katherine Center
#26. It's strange that I could have laughed so hard under those circumstances, during that very dark moment in my life. But I've decided sorrow can make things funnier. Endure enough hardship, and you start really needing a good laugh. #Quote by Katherine Center
Laughter quotes by Alysha Millet
#27. Life can be a mystery, love can be a mistake, laughter can turn into tears, but these are chances we'll have to take. #Quote by Alysha Millet
Laughter quotes by Howard Schultz
#28. There is a word that comes to my mind when I think about our company and our people. That word is 'love.' I love Starbucks because everything we've tried to do is steeped in humanity.
Respect and dignity.
Passion and laughter.
Compassion, community, and responsibility.
Authenticity.
These are Starbucks' touchstones, the source of our pride.
Valuing personal connections at a time when so many people sit alone in front of screens; aspiring to build human relationships in an age when so many issues polarize so many; and acting ethically, even if it costs more, when corners are routinely cut
these are honorable pursuits, at the core of what we set out to be. #Quote by Howard Schultz
Laughter quotes by Anonymous
#29. Raistlin laughed until he thought he might have hurt something inside him. The laughter felt good. For a time, it banished the darkness. #Quote by Anonymous
Laughter quotes by Publilius Syrus
#30. The weeping of an heir is laughter in disguise. #Quote by Publilius Syrus
Laughter quotes by Madeleine L'Engle
#31. I hope that I will never forget the salvific power of joyful laughter. #Quote by Madeleine L'Engle
Laughter quotes by Andra Brynn
#32. And suddenly I think: nothing is fine. It's never fine. It's always an illusion. Happy smiles, assurances, jokes, laughter - there's no way to tell if it is real, or a mask. There's always something terrible hurtling toward you, something that will destroy all that you love and alter your life forever. You may not know it, but it's coming and there's nothing you can do. No amount of hammering, or holy water, or screaming will change that.
You can scream no, and stop, and please, you can reach out and try to bend fate to your will with your own two hands, but it has already been decided. In every moment, a thousand accidents wait to happen, already in place and poised to strike, and we don't even know it #Quote by Andra Brynn
Laughter quotes by Meredith T. Taylor
#33. You are the sun. You bring warmth, laughter and joy - but he is the moon. He draws me into a world of mystery that I have never known. #Quote by Meredith T. Taylor
Laughter quotes by Steve Martin
#34. I realized that comedians of the day were operating on jokes and punch lines. The moment you say the punch line, the audience either laughs sincerely or they laugh automatically or they don't laugh. The thing that bothered me was that automatic laugh. I said, that's not real laughter. #Quote by Steve Martin
Laughter quotes by Ana Monnar
#35. If I had to do it all again, I would still want my same daughter and two sons; through laughter, tears, prayers, and blessings. #Quote by Ana Monnar
Laughter quotes by Elle Kennedy
#36. I fight back laughter.

"As you wish."

"Did you really just Princess Bride me?"

"Did you really just use Princess Bride as a verb? #Quote by Elle Kennedy
Laughter quotes by Rajneesh
#37. I celebrate myself, and I hope soon the day will come you will be celebrating yourself. And when thousands and thousands of people around the earth are celebrating, singing, dancing, ecstatic, drunk with the divine, there is no possibility of any global suicide. With such festivity and with such laughter, with such sanity and health, with such naturalness and spontaneity, how can there be a war? #Quote by Rajneesh
Laughter quotes by Rebecca McNutt
#38. Her laughter sounded like April showers, like whispered secrets, like glass wind-chimes. #Quote by Rebecca McNutt
Laughter quotes by Brodi Ashton
#39. That looks cozy," I said in a timid voice.
He turned at the sound and-taking in my appearance-immediately spit hot chocolate all over.
"What?" I demanded.
With an obvious effort to compose himself, he forced his lips into a frown and wiped his chin with the back of his hand. "Breathtaking."
I raised an eyebrow,and his lips started to quiver, and then there was no stopping him. The laughter came in waves.
"Well,that's not exactly the reaction I was going for," I said.
"Isn't it?" he said, gasping for breath.
I put my hand on my hip and tapped my foot as he inhaled deeply and rubbed his eyes with the palm of his hand. "Finished?" I asked.
He shook his head. "I love you."
"I'm sorry?"
"You heard me." He stood and walked toward me.
I glanced down at my sweats,and then back at his face. "Did you not notice my getup?"
He halved the distance between us. "Oh yeah. I noticed," he said,like it was the sexiest thing he'd ever seen. His lips curled up into a smile.
"Okay,so that's not the reaction I was going for either," I said,taking a small step backward as he closed the gap between us.
He grabbed my hands in his and his grin disappeared. "Becks.I think I know what you're worried about,but I meant what I said.I love you. And I would never push you."
My entire body turned red. "But don't you mythological higher beings-" I tried to remember how Jules had put it-"need...the...um..."
Jack looked confused,and t #Quote by Brodi Ashton
Laughter quotes by Mary Karr
#40. Gary Shteyngart has written a memoir for the ages. I spat laughter on the first page and closed the last with wet eyes. Un-put-down-able in the day and a half I spent reading it, Little Failure is a window into immigrant agony and ambition, Jewish angst, and anybody's desperate need for a tribe. Readers who've fallen for Shteyngart's antics on the page will relish the trademark humor. But here it's laden and leavened with a deep, consequential, psychological journey. Brave and unflinching, Little Failure is his best book to date #Quote by Mary Karr
Laughter quotes by George Ade
#41. R-E-M-O-R-S-E!
Those dry Martinis did the work for me;
Last night at twelve I felt intense,
Today I feel like thirty cents.
My eyes are bleared, my coopers hot,
I'll try to eat, but I cannot.
It is no time for mirth and laughter,
The cold, gray dawn the morning after. #Quote by George Ade
Laughter quotes by Aldous Huxley
#42. Amour is the one human activity of any importance in which laughter and pleasure preponderate, if ever so slightly, over misery and pain. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Laughter quotes by Katie Ashley
#43. Let me guess. This extremely horny moment was made possible by pregnancy hormones?
Her giggle vibrated against his cheek. "Yes it was. Ugh, they're insane." She released his member and pulled away. "I think I'm starting to understand what it's like to be you."
Throwing his head back, Aidan roared with laughter. "You mean what it feels like to be a horndog?"
Wide-eyed, she replied, "uh-huh."
"Then why did you pull away?"
"Well, because-"
"That wasn't me complaining, babe. #Quote by Katie Ashley
Laughter quotes by John Cleese
#44. Laughter destroys any divisions between people. #Quote by John Cleese
Laughter quotes by David Levithan
#45. It was a laugh that came from the tip of his toes, gaining force and soul as it traveled through his body and out into the world in mirthful bursts. There wasn't anything fake about it; it was an amusement park of a laugh, and when it appeared, you wanted to jump on board. #Quote by David Levithan
Laughter quotes by Euginia Herlihy
#46. Laughter is the remedy of all. #Quote by Euginia Herlihy
Laughter quotes by J.K. Rowling
#47. Wow," he added, blinking rather rapidly as Hermione came hurrying toward them. "You look great!"
"Always the tone of surprise," said Hermione, though she smiled. She was wearing a floaty, lilac-colored dress with matching high heels; her hair was sleek and shiny. "Your Great-Aunt Muriel doesn't agree, I just met her upstairs while she was giving Fleur the tiara. She said, 'Oh dear, is this the Muggle-born?' and then, 'Bad posture and skinny ankles.'"
"Don't take it personally, she's rude to everyone," said Ron.
"Talking about Muriel?" inquired George, reemerging from the marquee with Fred. "Yeah, she's just told me my ears are lopsided. Old bat. I wish old Uncle Bilius was still with us, though; he was a right laugh at weddings."
"Wasn't he the one who saw a Grim and died twenty-hour hours later?" asked Hermione.
"Well, yeah, he went a bit odd toward the end," conceded George.
"But before he went loopy he was the life and soul of the party," said Fred. "He used to down an entire bottle of firewhisky, then run onto the dance floor, hoist up his robes, and start pulling bunches of flowers out of his--"
"Yes, he sounds a real charmer," said Hermione, while Harry roared with laughter.
"Never married, for some reason," said Ron.
"You amaze me," said Hermione. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Laughter quotes by Matthew Fox
#48. The universe is in the habit of making beauty. There are flowers and songs, snowflakes and smiles, acts of great courage, laughter between friends, a job well done, the smell of fresh baked bread. Beauty is everywhere. #Quote by Matthew Fox
Laughter quotes by Tanya Masse
#49. Laughter IS the BEST medicine! It's FREE! You can overdose on it! It helps you embrace the insanities of life! It reduces stress, heals your body and relieves pain! It fights disease and cancer and strengthens the immune system! It eases your mind, it protects your heart and soothes your soul! #Quote by Tanya Masse
Laughter quotes by George Herbert
#50. Laugh not too much; the witty man laughs least: For wit is news only to ignorance. Lesse at thine own things laugh; lest in the jest Thy person share, and the conceit advance. #Quote by George Herbert
Laughter quotes by Yevgeny Zamyatin
#51. I never knew it before but now I know - and you, too, know - that laughter may be of different colors, Laughter is but a distant echo of an explosion within us; it may be the echo of a holiday - red, blue, and golden fireworks - or at times it may represent pieces of human flesh exploded into the air. ... #Quote by Yevgeny Zamyatin
Laughter quotes by Osho
#52. You are feeling sad? Befriend it. Have compassion for it. Sadness also has a being. Allow it, embrace it, sit with it, hold hands with it. Be friendly. Be in love with it. Sadness is beautiful! Nothing is wrong with it. Who told you that something is wrong in being sad? In fact, only sadness gives you depth. Laughter is shallow; happiness is skin-deep. Sadness goes to the very bones, to the marrow. Nothing goes as deep as sadness. #Quote by Osho
Laughter quotes by Nichole Chase
#53. A group of older women walked past, wearing fanny packs and large cameras around their necks.

...

"I think I'm going to get one of those." Weylin's voice was thoughtful as he watched the women jaywalk.

"One of what?" Ree cocked an eyebrow and smiled at her friend.

"I don't know, Wey-mand. I think they might be too much woman for you." Paden flashed a crooked grin.

"Har, har. I meant a fanny pack." Looking thoughtful, Weylin ignored thier expressions of disbelief.

"A...fanny pack?" Sophie was looking at Weylin as if he had lost his mind, but Ree noticed the corners of her mouth twitching.

"Yeah. Think about all the cool things I could carry in one." Completely unperturbed, Weylin stopped at the crosswalk and hit the button on the light post. "I could carry knives and some of those collapsible swords that Roland uses. Oh and snacks!"

Unable to control her laughter anymore, Ree leaned over and clutched her sides. "Snacks? Weylin, I think you might need to lie down. You obviously have a fever or something."

"You won't be saying that the next time we're out and you get a hankering for a pizza or some popcorn. I could even carry bottled water and little sanitizer wipes."

"How big of a fanny pack are you planning on getting? Paden raised an eyebrow.

...

"Oh, hell no! I am not eating food you've been carrying near your man-pickle. That is so not going to #Quote by Nichole Chase
Laughter quotes by Theodor W. Adorno
#54. There is laughter because there is nothing to laugh at. #Quote by Theodor W. Adorno
Laughter quotes by Max Beerbohm
#55. Few, as I have said, are the humorists who can induce this state. To master and dissolve us, to give us the joy of being worn down and tired out with laughter, is a success to be won by no man save in virtue of a rare staying-power. Laughter becomes extreme only if it be consecutive. There must be no pauses for recovery. Touch-and-go humour, however happy, is not enough. The jester must be able to grapple his theme and hang on to it, twisting it this way and that, and making it yield magically all manner of strange and precious things. #Quote by Max Beerbohm
Laughter quotes by Megan Whalen Turner
#56. That won't be necessary," said the magus coolly. "No one would mistake you for anything but a tool, Gen. If a sword is well made, does the credit go to the blacksmith or to his hammer? How much smarter than a hammer can you be if you flaunt the proof of your crimes in a wineshop?" I flushed, and he laughed. If I hadn't already been angry, it might not have seemed unkind laughter. #Quote by Megan Whalen Turner
Laughter quotes by Rumi
#57. The core of the seen and unseen universe smiles, but remember smiles come best from those who weep. Lightning, then the rain-laughter. #Quote by Rumi
Laughter quotes by Rumi
#58. I eliminated duality with joyous laughter
Saw the unity of here and the hereafter
Unity is what I sing, unity is what I speak
Unity is what I know, unity is what I seek #Quote by Rumi
Laughter quotes by Twyla Tharp
#59. I learned very early that an audience would relax and look at things differently if they felt they could laugh with you from time to time. There's an energy that comes through the release of tension that is laughter. #Quote by Twyla Tharp
Laughter quotes by Colleen Hoover
#60. Dear Ellen,
"Just keep swimming."
Recognize that quote, Ellen? It's what Dory says to Marlin in Finding Nemo.
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
I'm not a huge fan of cartoons, but I'll give you props for that one. I like cartoons that can make you laughter, but also make you feel something. After today, think that's my favorite cartoon. Because I've been feeling like drowning lately, and sometimes people need a reminder that they just need to keep swimming. #Quote by Colleen Hoover
Laughter quotes by Elle Aycart
#61. Where are you going?"
"You didn't ... "
"No, I didn't, but I'm in heaven deep in you. I want to stay like this. Let's talk."
She burst into laughter. "Talk? Are you nuts? I can't talk while lying on top of you with your cock shoved deep inside me."
He grabbed her by her waist and, without pulling out, he rose to lean on the wall, rearranging her to straddle him. "There you have it, no more lying. #Quote by Elle Aycart
Laughter quotes by Aurora Rose Reynolds
#62. I vow to love you unconditionally, without hesitation. I will encourage you, trust you, and respect you. As a family, we will create a home filled with learning, laughter, and compassion. I promise to be your biggest fan, your partner in crime, and the person you can always depend on. From the moment we met, you have owned me, and I will love you until I take my last breath. I will work every day to make now into always. With these words, and all the love in my heart, I marry you and bind your life to mine. #Quote by Aurora Rose Reynolds
Laughter quotes by Pablo Neruda
#63. Of everything I have seen, it's you I want to go on seeing: of everything I've touched, it's your flesh I want to go on touching. I love your orange laughter. I am moved by the sight of you sleeping. What am I to do, love, loved one? I don't know how others love or how people loved in the past. I live, watching you, loving you. Being in love is my nature. #Quote by Pablo Neruda
Laughter quotes by Brenda Pandos
#64. A crack of a tree limb and falling foliage forced me to open my eyes. A tree fell right above my head, frightened birds flew out of the leaves and a cackle of laughter echoed across the ravine – extreme happiness mingled with the loathing hate. Selfishly, I prayed the fight would end in my favor and quickly.
But then suddenly I heard something that sounded like a sizzling firework and felt someone's surprise turned into fear… then nothing. The evil vanished. I breathed a sigh of relief too soon as the branch shifted in the earth next to me.
"Hurry!" I cried, but it was too late.
I screamed as I fell, knowing I was about to die. #Quote by Brenda Pandos
Laughter quotes by Siri Mitchell
#65. But if you've always wanted to travel, then why don't you?" I very nearly shrugged before I remembered not to. "I can't." "Why not?' "Because . . . because . . . it's just not done. How would I do it? What would I say?" He grinned. "Bon voyage - I'm off to the Continent. That seemed to work for me." "But you're a man." "Yes. Yes, I am." "You can do whatever you want. But I'm a girl - " "Yes, indeed you are!" I frowned. He was teasing me. "Forgive me. As you were saying?" "I cannot just go wherever I want whenever I please. I have to be escorted. And who would escort me abroad?" "I would." I laughed. "I would!" His protest was tinged by his own laughter. "You can't." "And why not?" "Because we aren't - " I was going to say married, but that would have been presumptuous. "Because you can't. It wouldn't be proper." "Far be it from me to know polite from improper, but I believe you just danced your first waltz properly. With your eyes open. #Quote by Siri Mitchell
Laughter quotes by T.B. LaBerge
#66. A soulmate is not someone who shares your interests and is attractive to you. A soulmate is someone who is willing to grow with you, who chooses to be with you until the end, and will love you through good and bad. It's not about sunshine and laughter, it's about mundane moments filled with unknowns. Love is so much more than a spark you have, or passions shared, it's working for something deeper and lasting. I think that at the end of all things, we'll see what really matters, and I think the things we produced with love and grace will be what we have to show. So love with purpose, love beyond yourself, and love knowing that what you are growing is beautiful and good. #Quote by T.B. LaBerge
Laughter quotes by Edward Abbey
#67. The distrust of wit is the beginning of tyranny. #Quote by Edward Abbey
Laughter quotes by Heather McCoubrey
#68. For Dad. I miss you. Feel no guilt in laughter, he'd know how much you care. Feel no sorrow in a smile that he is not here to share. You cannot grieve forever; he would not want you to. He'd hope that you could carry on the way you always do. So, talk about the good times and the way you showed you cared, The days you spent together, all the happiness you shared. Let memories surround you, a word someone may say Will suddenly recapture a time, an hour, a day, That brings him back as clearly as though he were still here, And fills you with the feeling that he is always near. For if you keep those moments, you will never be apart And he will live forever locked safely within your heart. --Unknown #Quote by Heather McCoubrey
Laughter quotes by Claire Contreras
#69. Would it bother you if somebody asked me out on a date?" His laughter stopped instantly. "Why? Who asked you out? That asshole realtor?" That made me laugh. "No. You know there are more men in the world, right?" "Who asked you out? #Quote by Claire Contreras
Laughter quotes by L.A. Casey
#70. He turned then and dove on Kane who yelped, "I'm sick! You can't hit me."

I cackled as I watched Alec bring Kane to the ground and pin him.

"You fat bastard!" Kane snapped. "Get off me!"

Alec slapped Kane's face and the look of shock on his face sent me into a fit of laughter.

"You... you slapped me," Kane said.

He blinked at Alec in disbelief.

"You cock blocked me," Alec replied. "Be happy it's nothing harder."

Kane continued to blink, then a fleeting moment later his shock evaporated and rage twisted his handsome face. I felt my jaw drop open when Kane lifted his hands to Alec's arms and flipped him off his body. Kane quickly rolled to the side and slammed Alec onto his back and got in his face.

"Hit me now," he growled.

I was stunned to silence.

"How did you do that?" I asked Kane, but he was too busy to answer me.

Alec grunted in Kane's hold. "You motherfucker... sick my ass. #Quote by L.A. Casey
Laughter quotes by Georges Bataille
#71. Laughing at the universe liberated my life. I escape its weight by laughing. I refuse any intellectual translations of this laughter, since my slavery would commrnce from that point on. #Quote by Georges Bataille
Laughter quotes by Jaime Allison Parker
#72. He had not joined in on the laughter or even on the beating. Violence of any sort horrified him. Nevertheless, he stood by while Mike, their leader, drove a boot down on Joe's hand. The hideous cracking sound of breaking bones came into his mind and a helpless shudder ran through him. Joe, whose high piercing scream against the autumn skies of indifference, replayed in his memory with shrill agony. Several times, he had shouted: "He's had enough! Let up on him!" Which earned him looks of contempt from the others. They had left the kid there, screaming in that back alley. He remembered trying to drown those screams out of his mind. #Quote by Jaime Allison Parker
Laughter quotes by Arlie Russell Hochschild
#73. For many of us, work is the one place where we feel appreciated. The things that we long to experience at home - pride in our accomplishments, laughter and fun, relationships that aren't complex - we sometimes experience most often in the office. Bosses applaud us when we do a good job. Co-workers become a kind of family we feel we fit into. #Quote by Arlie Russell Hochschild
Laughter quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#74. Sincere and unspiteful laughter is mirth, but where is there any mirth in our time, and do people know how to be mirthful? ... A man's mirth is a feature that gives away the whole man, from head to foot. Someone's character won't be cracked for a long time then the man bursts out laughing somehow quite sincerely, and his whole character suddenly opens up as if on the flat of your hand. Only a man of the loftiest and happiest development knows how to be mirthful infectiously, that is, irresistibly and goodheartedly. I'm not speaking of his mental development, but of his character, of the whole man. And so, if you want to discern a man and know his soul, you must look, not at how he keeps silent, or how he speaks, or how we weeps, or even how he is stirred by the noblest ideas, but you had better look at him when he laughs. If a man has a good laugh, it means he's a good man. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Laughter quotes by Joan D. Chittister
#75. Humor and laughter are not necessarily the same thing. Humor permits us to see into life from a fresh and gracious perspective. We learn to take ourselves more lightly in the presence of good humor. Humor gives us the strength to bear what cannot be changed, and the sight to see the human under the pompous. #Quote by Joan D. Chittister
Laughter quotes by Sara Ahmed
#76. These ways we have to settle. Moving house. I hate packing: collecting myself up, pulling myself apart. Stripping the body of the house: the walls, the floors, the shelves. Then I arrive, an empty house. It looks like a shell. How I love unpacking. Taking things out, putting things around, arranging myself all over the walls. I move around, trying to distribute myself evenly around the rooms. I concentrate on the kitchen. The familiar smell of spices fills the air. I allow the cumin to spill, and then gather it up again. I feel flung back somewhere else. I am never sure where the smell of spices takes me, as it had followed me everywhere. Each smell that gathers returns me somewhere; I am not always sure where that somewhere is. Sometimes the return is welcome, sometimes not. Sometimes it is tears or laughter that makes me realize that I have been pulled to another place and another time. Such memories can involve a recognition of how one's body already feels, coming after the event. The surprise when we find ourselves moved in this way or that. So we ask the question, later, and it often seems too late: what is it that has led me away from the present, to another place and another time? How is it that I have arrived here or there? #Quote by Sara Ahmed
Laughter quotes by S.R. Ford
#77. Naomi giggled that same giggle with which Enoch had become infatuated. #Quote by S.R. Ford
Laughter quotes by Seanan McGuire
#78. There were realities the human mind was never meant to withstand, pressures it was never meant to survive. Knowledge is like the sea. Go too deep, and the crushing weight of it could kill you. #Quote by Seanan McGuire
Laughter quotes by Marquesate & Vashtan
#79. If I told you that I wanted to spend my days and nights with you, live with you, as my partner, because out there, in Hell, I realised that you mean the world to me? That you are my sanity, my laughter, my lust, my love, my comfort, my day and my night, my heat and cold and everything? If I told you that, would you think that translates to 'convenient'? #Quote by Marquesate & Vashtan
Laughter quotes by Jay Kristoff
#80. Speaking of shabby looks, we're going to have to give you a haircut soon.
... WHAT?
These feathers are getting messy.
LET ME UNDERSTAND THIS CORRECTLY. YOU WISH TO CUT MY MANE?
Thunder tigers grow manes?
OF COURSE! HOW ELSE WOULD YOU TELL MALES FROM FEMALES?
This is a trick question, right?
A MANE IS A SIGN A MALE ARASHITORA HAS REACHED MATURITY.
Her laughter rang out in his mind.
So it's going to be a few more decades growing, then?
HMPH. I'LL HAVE YOU KNOW MOST FEMALES FIND IT FETCHING. #Quote by Jay Kristoff
Laughter quotes by Henri Bergson
#81. In laughter we always find an unavowed intention to humiliate and consequently to correct our neighbour. #Quote by Henri Bergson
Laughter quotes by Winifred Holtby
#82. I find you in all small and lovely things; in the little fishes like flames in the green water, in the furred and stupid softness of bumble-bees fat as laughter, in all the chiming radiance of warmth and light and scent in the summer garden. #Quote by Winifred Holtby
Laughter quotes by Simon Pegg
#83. I hesitate to say I was the class clown, but that was kind of how I interacted with other kids in school, and I very much appreciated the responses I got. The validation of laughter is often a very heavy psychological balm. #Quote by Simon Pegg
Laughter quotes by Terry Pratchett
#84. Many bad things were done under the Evil Empire" she said. "The best we can do now is undo them. Will you assist in this endeavor?"
"In every way that I can" said Nutt.
"I would like you to teach them civilized behavior," said Ladyship coldly.
He appeared to consider this. "Yes, of course, I think, that would be quite possible," he said. "And who would you send to teach the humans?"
There was a brief outburst of laughter from Vetinari, who immediately cupped his hand over his mouth. "Oh I do beg your pardon," he said. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Laughter quotes by Weegee
#85. When you find yourself beginning to feel a bond between yourself and the people you photograph, when you laugh and cry with their laughter and tears, you will know you are on the right track. #Quote by Weegee
Laughter quotes by Joni Mitchell
#86. Inside your own self pity there you swim, in sinking down to drown her voice still haunts you, and only with your laughter can you win. #Quote by Joni Mitchell
Laughter quotes by Honore De Balzac
#87. To promote laughter without joining in it greatly heightens the effect. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Laughter quotes by Erin Fall Haskell
#88. If you're searching for something out in the world to bring you happiness, wealth or love, then you are in for a tough journey. The key to success is never out there, but rather within. It is merely a side effect of awakening the divine within! #Quote by Erin Fall Haskell
Laughter quotes by Stephenie Meyer
#89. Laughter was like a fresh breeze - it cleaned its way through the body making everything feel good. Did other species have such a simple healer? #Quote by Stephenie Meyer
Laughter quotes by Kevin Spacey
#90. You've got to trust the ground you're standing on and the work you've done in telling your story. The goal should be to bring those thousands of people - viewers - together and make them one. When you feel that happening, it's usually in silence, not applause or laughter. #Quote by Kevin Spacey
Laughter quotes by Lisa See
#91. Her house is the nest where she hides the joy, laughter, sorrows, and regrets of her life. #Quote by Lisa See
Laughter quotes by Mrs. Patrick Campbell
#92. Youth is harmed by having wisdom thrust upon it. Youth must gather wisdom slowly, in laughter and tears. #Quote by Mrs. Patrick Campbell
Laughter quotes by Jack Gilbert
#93. A Brief for the Defense

Sorrow everywhere. Slaughter everywhere. If babies
are not starving someplace, they are starving
somewhere else. With flies in their nostrils.
But we enjoy our lives because that's what God wants.
Otherwise the mornings before summer dawn would not
be made so fine. The Bengal tiger would not
be fashioned so miraculously well. The poor women
at the fountain are laughing together between
the suffering they have known and the awfulness
in their future, smiling and laughing while somebody
in the village is very sick. There is laughter
every day in the terrible streets of Calcutta,
and the women laugh in the cages of Bombay.
If we deny our happiness, resist our satisfaction,
we lessen the importance of their deprivation.
We must risk delight. We can do without pleasure,
but not delight. Not enjoyment. We must have
the stubbornness to accept our gladness in the ruthless
furnace of this world. To make injustice the only
measure of our attention is to praise the Devil.
If the locomotive of the Lord runs us down,
we should give thanks that the end had magnitude.
We must admit there will be music despite everything.
We stand at the prow again of a small ship
anchored late at night in the tiny port
looking over to the sleeping island: the waterfront
is three shuttered cafés and one naked light burni #Quote by Jack Gilbert
Laughter quotes by Anne Lamott
#94. Laughter is a bubbly, effervescent form of holiness #Quote by Anne Lamott
Laughter quotes by Pink Floyd
#95. Come on you target for faraway laughter. Come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine! #Quote by Pink Floyd
Laughter quotes by Milan Kundera
#96. The sound of laughter is like the vaulted dome of a temple of happiness, "that delectable trance of happiness, that ultimate peak of delight. Laughter of delight, delight of laughter." There is no doubt: this laughter goes "far beyond joking, jeering, and ridicule." The two sisters stretched out on their bed are not laughing at anything concrete, their laughter has no object; it is an expression of being rejoicing at being ... and in this ecstatic laughter he loses all memory, all desire, cries out to the immediate present of the world, and needs no other knowledge. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Laughter quotes by J. Thorn
#97. The cold November sun sent weak rays onto the floor of the old house. The floor beneath snickered, trying hard to hold back snaps of bawdy laughter. The temperature dropped with ease. #Quote by J. Thorn
Laughter quotes by T.R. Johnson
#98. The 8 Snippets feed hungry hearts with love, learning and laughter. #Quote by T.R. Johnson
Laughter quotes by Rose Wynters
#99. Ryker, you ride with Orlando," Ryker mocked in a snarky voice as he turned to the other man. He gestured toward the Pinto with a look of revulsion on his rugged face. "How the hell does he expect both of us to fit into that tiny metal trap? Even if we could squeeze in, the tires will probably pop. In fact, let's just carry it over. It'll be faster that way. #Quote by Rose Wynters
Laughter quotes by Joan Lunden
#100. Holding on to anger, resentment and hurt only gives you tense muscles, a headache and a sore jaw from clenching your teeth. Forgiveness gives you back the laughter and the lightness in your life. #Quote by Joan Lunden
Laughter quotes by Vera Jane Cook
#101. It was perfect. The birds and the sky and the yellow leaves of Autumn. This was what it was, this life. It was tenuous and frail and yet fraught with beauty, and with beauty comes sadness. If you opt in to loving then you opt in to being human, to having your heart break a million times over. It's a circle of sorts. The more you go round the more laughter you find, the more laughter, the more joy, the more sadness. That is what life is. I felt something warm in my heart and I reached for Angus' hand. #Quote by Vera Jane Cook
Laughter quotes by Sarah Rees Brennan
#102. The drab brown front of the house made it look as if it had been built from rusty spare parts. Someone always put lace curtains in the windows of dreary houses, and Nick was unsurprised to see the curtains making their attempts in every window of this place. There was a china garden gnome on the doorstep, wearing a desperate, crazy smile.
"It's not so bad," Alan said.
"You never take me nice places anymore, baby." said Nick, and was mildly gratified by Alan's ring of laughter, like a living bell that had been caught by surprise when it was struck. #Quote by Sarah Rees Brennan
Laughter quotes by Samantha Sotto
#103. A kiss can be dreadfully terrifying for the males of our species, I'm afraid." Rose said knowingly. "Sex is easy. All they really need is a few good thrusts. But when they kiss, they open themselves up and let you in. And that, my dear, makes some men's balls shrink to the size of raisins."
Shelley snorted with laughter.
Dex strode up to her. "Did someone say raisins? I'm starving."
"You might try asking Max for some," Shelley said. "I'm sure he has at least two. #Quote by Samantha Sotto
Laughter quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#104. Laughter is the only medicine, without side effects. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Laughter quotes by Rupert Brooke
#105. The War Sonnets: V. The Soldier
If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam,
A body of England's, breathing English air,
Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home.
And think, this heart, all evil shed away,
A pulse in the eternal mind, no less
Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given;
Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day;
And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness,
In hearts at peace, under an English heaven. #Quote by Rupert Brooke
Laughter quotes by Bill Gates
#106. I love nuclear. It does this radiation thing that's tricky (laughter). But they're good solutions. You know, it was interesting; recently, in Connecticut this natural gas plant blew up 11 guys. It just blew them up. #Quote by Bill Gates
Laughter quotes by Torey L. Hayden
#107. Perhaps the greatest magic of the human spirit is the ability to laugh, at ourselves, at each other, and at our sometimes hopeless situation. Laughter normalized our lives #Quote by Torey L. Hayden
Laughter quotes by N.M. Silber
#108. Okay," Adam began, "Now concentrate! This was a real person. White suit!"
"Colonel Sanders!" Lily replied quickly.
"Colonel Sanders? I said it was a real person, not a logo for a chicken joint!"
"He was a real person! If you don't believe me look it up!"
"Whatever! Not Colonel Sanders though. Humor!" he said urgently.
"Steve Martin!" She clapped her hands with joy, obviously believing that they had finally gotten one right.
"No, uh..." He searched for another clue.
"Wait! White suit and humor but not Steve Martin?" She looked crushed.
"I just said no!" He yelled! "Hannibal!"
"Um, uh, Dumbo..." she said with a deeply pensive expression.
"Dumbo?! What the fuck?!"
"Hannibal! Elephants! And before you say it he was real, too, you schmuck!"
"Guess again goddamnit!"
"Anthony Hopkins!" Adam threw down the card and looked like he was going to cry.
"Halley's Comet!" he growled.
"Halley's Comet?! What in the hell do you mean Halley's Comet!"
"Time!" Braden informed them gleefully, wiping tears of laughter out of his eyes.
"Mark Twain! You're an author Christ's sake!" Adam bit out.
"Oh, right! He was from Hannibal, Missouri! What in the hell did Halley's Comet have to do with Mark Twain?!"
"It appeared on the day he was born and the day he died! Duh huh!" Adam said.
"This isn't Trivial fucking Pursuit!" Lily shot back. "Why didn't you say Mississippi or riverboat or frog jumping contes #Quote by N.M. Silber
Laughter quotes by Ashlee North
#109. As I stand here before you, looking into your gorgeous blue eyes, I see all of the reasons I fell in love with you.
I find myself a bit lost for the right words to say...
but I know this... that above all, as I stand here, your wedding ring in my hand, that this moment in time makes me remember how very complete you make my life...
It's in every smile, all the laughter, every touch, every tear you've wiped from my face and everything you mean to me.
Right now I remember how blessed I really am, how I can't ever be thankful enough, that I have you in my life.
As I stand with you I remember every joy we've shared and every hard time we made it through together, and because of this I know that together we will enjoy and hold close to each other in all the moments there are to come. #Quote by Ashlee North
Laughter quotes by Andre Gide
#110. It was a momentary laughter, in which our souls united. But I think there comes a point in love, a unique moment which later on the soul seeks in vain to surpass, and that the effort to revive such happiness depletes it; that nothing thwarts happiness so much as the memory of happiness. #Quote by Andre Gide
Laughter quotes by Robert Darnton
#111. By seeing the way a joke worked in the horseplay of a printing shop two centuries ago, we may be able to recapture that missing element - laughter, sheer laughter, the thigh-slapping, rib-cracking Rabelaisian kind, rather than the Voltairian smirk with which we are familiar. #Quote by Robert Darnton
Laughter quotes by Srividya Srinivasan
#112. You talk of beauty, love, laughter and life like a precious memory. As if the sunshine of love and laughter shall never flow into your life again. You make it sound like your present and future shall promise you nothing but safety and comfort in a sort of dead, dull way. What killed the spirit of madness, the spark of adventure and the sense of delicious fun ? Your aliveness ? Is this what it is to get old ? #Quote by Srividya Srinivasan
Laughter quotes by Ruth Reichl
#113. You mean like you?" The old enmity had come roaring back, and she was no longer one of my bosses. She gave a shout of laughter. "Well, you're right, it's been a rotten time. I've been catering, which is just another way of saying that I've been in hell." "That bad?" Richard took a bite #Quote by Ruth Reichl
Laughter quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#114. There are many standards to measure if a person was successful including did they fill a niche role in society, invent something useful, attain professional distinction, or achieve great wealth. A person might also judge someone a success in life if they laughed frequently, were kind to children and animals, and were truthful, loved by their family, and respected by their friends. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Laughter quotes by Cormac McCarthy
#115. On Gay Street the traffic lights are stilled. The trolleyrails gleam in their beds and a late car passes with a long slish of tires. In the long arcade of the bus station footfalls come back like laughter. He marches darkly toward his darkly marching shape in the glass of the depot door. His fetch come up from life's other side like an autoscopic hallucination, Suttree and Antisuttree, hand reaching to the hand. #Quote by Cormac McCarthy
Laughter quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#116. And let that day be lost to us on which we did not dance once! And let that wisdom be false to us that brought no laughter with it! #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Laughter quotes by Aldous Huxley
#117. It is a scene of Satyrs and Nymphs, of pursuits and captures, provocative resistances followed by the enthusiastic surrender of lips to bearded lips, of panting bosoms to the impatience of rough hands, the whole accompanied by a babel of shouting, squealing and shrill laughter #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Laughter quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#118. laughter. "Glad to find you so merry, my girls," said a cheery #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
Laughter quotes by Christine Feehan
#119. Draden. Who knew there were men like him in the world? He made it exciting to wake up in the morning. She looked forward to the day. To their shared laughter. Their conversations. The intense attraction between them. Who wouldn't fall in love with him? #Quote by Christine Feehan
Laughter quotes by Michel Hazanavicius
#120. I chose the American ones, more or less the last five years of the silent era, because those are the ones that aged the best in the way they tell the story. One, it's about human beings with context. It's a very classical story with feelings, with laughter, melodrama and it really works, the good ones - Murnau's American movies, John Ford's Four Sons, King Vidor's The Crowd, or the (Josef) von Sternberg movies. You can watch it now and it still works. I mean they are really, really good pieces so this is where I tried to work. #Quote by Michel Hazanavicius
Laughter quotes by Moliere
#121. She is laughing up her sleeve at you. #Quote by Moliere
Laughter quotes by L. Neil Smith
#122. Most of us agree that the United Nations is the vanguard of a foreign invasion and must be driven from our shores. Liberalism Progressivism all forms of left wing collectivism , are equally alien to the Founders ' America and must be extirpated, root and branch, laughter and derision being the most effective weapons. Look at the way they have reduced Hillary Clinton to an insignificant greasy spot on the pages of history, turned Albert Gore into an object of merriment, and are accomplishing the same for Barry and Micky Obama. #Quote by L. Neil Smith
Laughter quotes by Harry Chapin
#123. And I know you're frightened By my laughter But you're not afraid To hold my pain You see I'm never sure Just what you're after, Babe But it seems you only love me When it rains. How come you only love me when it rains? #Quote by Harry Chapin
Laughter quotes by David C. Coates
#124. Meanwhile, some people are dying of sad laughter at the absurdity of man, who kills so easily and so violently, and once a year sends out cards praying for "Peace on Earth." #Quote by David C. Coates
Laughter quotes by Staceyann Chin
#125. Every day I get better at knowing that it is not a choice to be an activist; rather, it is the only way to hold on to the better parts of my human self. It is the only way I can live and laugh without guilt. #Quote by Staceyann Chin
Laughter quotes by Paulette Jiles
#126. Falls. He saw her bright, fierce little face break into laughter when the crowd laughed. It was good. Laughter is good for the soul and all your interior works. THAT #Quote by Paulette Jiles
Laughter quotes by Alasdair Gray
#127. At last she interrupted with a harsh rattle of laughter. "Oh, yes, I like this book! Crazy hopes of a glamorous, rich, colorful life and then abduction, rape, slavery. That book, at least, is true."
"It is not true. It is a male sex fantasy."
"And life for most women is just that, a performance in a male sex fantasy. The stupid ones don't notice, they've been trained for it since they were babies, so they're happy. And of course the writer of that book made things obvious by speeding them up. What happens to the Blandish girl in a few weeks takes a lifetime for the rest of us. #Quote by Alasdair Gray
Laughter quotes by C.E. Murphy
#128. I opened my eyes to find Gary and my mother sitting cross-legged up against a half-fallen wall, both of them laughing so hard they had tears running down their faces. My mother had Gary's forearm in one hand as she wheezed, "She didn't, she didn't!" and wiped tears away with the other, and Gary nodded so merrily it appeared his head would go bobbling off.
It was so completely incongruous with the farewell I'd just experienced I just sat there, offended on general principles, and waited for them to notice I'd woken up. Instead my mother threw her head back and shrieked like a delighted banshee, laughter bouncing off the crumbling walls.
I looked upward. The surviving banshees still sat in the oak rafters, many of them with expressions of accusation. This was not how things were done, and it was clearly all my fault. #Quote by C.E. Murphy
Laughter quotes by Sonja Livingston
#129. How fickle it is, memory - preferring some days to others, granting first a blue sky, offering next the sound of laughter, swelling our remembrances until a largeness seeps into the grain of things and memory itself becomes billowed and flapping. #Quote by Sonja Livingston
Laughter quotes by Octavio Paz
#130. Kostas Papaioannou"

the wave of your laughter surged over the chatting and the rattle of
the cups and spoons,
it was the sound of spotted goats clambering in a rush over a land of
burnt hills,
the couple at the next table stopped talking and froze with blank
stares,
as if reality had become naked and nothing remained except the silent
spinning of atoms and molecules,
it was a flapping of wings over blue and white waves, a sparkle of
sun on the rocks,
we heard the sound of the footsteps of the nomadic waters on slabs
the color of embers,
we saw a butterfly land on the cashier's head, open its wings of flame
and shatter into reflections,
we touched the thoughts we thought and saw the words we said, and
then the clatter of the spoons returned, the tide swelled, the people came
and went,
but you were on the edge of the cliff, the bay was a broad smile, and
above, the light and the wind conspired : Psyche blew across your forehead. #Quote by Octavio Paz
Laughter quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#131. Life in These United States. Laughter Is the Best Medicine. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Laughter quotes by Mrs. Charles E. Cowman
#132. As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing (2 Corinthians 6:10).

Sorrow was beautiful, but her beauty was the beauty of the moonlight shining through the leafy branches of the trees in the wood, and making little pools of silver here and there on the soft green moss below. When Sorrow sang, her notes were like the low sweet call of the nightingale, and in her eyes was the unexpectant gaze of one who has ceased to look for coming gladness. She could weep in tender sympathy with those who weep, but to rejoice with those who rejoice was unknown to her.

Joy was beautiful, too, but his was the radiant beauty of the summer morning. His eyes still held the glad laughter of childhood, and his hair had the glint of the sunshine's kiss. When Joy sang his voice soared upward as the lark's, and his step was the step of a conqueror who has never known defeat. He could rejoice with all who rejoice, but to weep with those who weep was unknown to him.

"But we can never be united," said Sorrow wistfully. "No, never." And Joy's eyes shadowed as he spoke. "My path lies through the sunlit meadows, the sweetest roses bloom for my gathering, and the blackbirds and thrushes await my coming to pour forth their most joyous lays."

"My path," said Sorrow, turning slowly away, "leads through the darkening woods, with moon-flowers only shall my hands be filled. Yet the sweetest of all earth-songs--the love song of the night--shall be mine; farewell, Joy, farewell."
#Quote by Mrs. Charles E. Cowman
Laughter quotes by Taryn Elliott
#133. He stilled at her laughter. It was rich and sexy, dark and playful. Something he'd never heard out of her mouth. His vision blurred for a second when she dragged his shirt up enough for their skin to touch. Then she gave up on getting the shirt off and latched on to his mouth again. He groaned as the heat of her skin blazed against his. #Quote by Taryn Elliott
Laughter quotes by Joseph Barbera
#134. What the real world of 1941 needed most was the release and relief provided by laughter. #Quote by Joseph Barbera
Laughter quotes by Peter David
#135. That was when it was all made painfully clear to me. When you are a child, there is joy. There is laughter. And most of all, there is trust. Trust in your fellows. When you are an adult ... then comes suspicion, hatred, and fear. If children ran the world, it would be a place of eternal bliss and cheer. Adults run the world; and there is war, and enmity, and destruction unending. Adults who take charge of things muck them up, and then produce a new generation of children and say, "The children are the hope of the future." And they are right. Children are the hope of the future. But adults are the damnation of the present, and children become adults as surely as adults become worm food.
Adults are the death of hope. #Quote by Peter David
Laughter quotes by Joseph Conrad
#136. 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. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Laughter quotes by Tommy Wallach
#137. Red Rover, Red Rover, send Ardor right over," Eliza said. They laughed. The asteroid was a little bigger now, brighter, and still they went on laughing. Laughing in the face of what they couldn't predict or change or control. Would it be fire and brimstone? Would it be Armageddon? Or would it be a second chance? Eliza held tight to her friends, laughing, and a pair of hands land soft as feathers on her shoulders, like the hands of a ghost, laughing and laughing as Ardor swept along its fated course, laughing and through that laughter, praying. Praying for forgiveness. Praying for grace. Praying for mercy.

Laughter quotes by Mark Twain
#138. She clung to him, she poured out her terrors, her unavailing regrets, and the far echoes turned them all to jeering laughter. #Quote by Mark Twain
Laughter quotes by Antoine Laurain
#139. That was exactly what Tabucchi was suggesting with his title ("La Nostalgie du Possible") --that we can pass right by something very important: love, a job, moving to another city or another country. Or another life. 'Pass by' and at the same time be 'so close' that sometimes, while in that state of melancholy that is akin to hypnosis, we can, in spite of everything, manage to grab little fragments of what might have been. Like catching snatches of a far-off radio frequency. The message is obscure, yet by listening carefully you can still catch snippets of the soundtrack of the life that never was. You hear sentences that were never actually said, you hear footsteps echoing in places you've never been to, you can make out the surf on a beach whose sand you have never touched. You hear the laughter and loving words of a woman though nothing ever happened between you. The idea of an affiar with her had crossed your mind. Perhaps she would have liked that --probably, in fact-- but nothing every happened. For some unknown reason, we never gave in to the exquisite vertigo that you feel when you move those few centimeters towards the face of the other for the first kiss. #Quote by Antoine Laurain
Laughter quotes by Stephen King
#140. Those are the only to verbalizations usually that we make in movies - either to scream or to laugh - because those two reactions are rather close. Most things we laugh at are things that are really horrible, when you think about them. It's funny and you don't scream, as long as it's not you. If it's somebody else you can laugh. #Quote by Stephen King
Laughter quotes by Ernst Junger
#141. Today words like 'persevere' and 'hero's death' had been so ceaselessly bandied about that they had long since acquired an ironic sound - at least wherever there was actual fighting. . . . Once, before an attack, Sturm had heard an old sergeant say the following: 'Kids, we're going over there now to gobble up the Englishmen's rations.' It was the best battle address that he had ever heard. That was surely something good in the war - that it destroyed glorious-sounding phrases. Concepts that hung fleshless in the void were overcome by laughter. #Quote by Ernst Junger
Laughter quotes by Gloria Steinem
#142. Laughter is a rescue. p.204 #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Laughter quotes by Thomas Dekker
#143. To awaken each morning with a smile brightening my face; to greet the day with reverence for the opportunities it contains; to approach my work with a clean mind; to hold ever before me, even in the doing of little things, the Ultimate Purpose toward which I am working; to meet men and women with laughter on my lips and love in my heart; to be gentle, kind, and courteous through all the hours; to approach the night with weariness that ever woos sleep and the joy that comes from work well done
this is how I desire to waste wisely my days. #Quote by Thomas Dekker
Laughter quotes by Bill Hicks
#144. I left in love, in laughter, and in truth, and wherever truth, love and laughter abide, I am there in spirit. #Quote by Bill Hicks
Laughter quotes by Harriet Rochlin
#145. Laughter can be more satisfying than honor; more precious than money; more heart-cleansing than prayer. #Quote by Harriet Rochlin
Laughter quotes by Sierra DeMulder
#146. When I feel myself falling out of love with you,
I turn the record of your laughter over, reposition the needle.
I dust the dirty living room of your affection.

Laughter quotes by Leslie Charteris
#147. I am an absurd idealist. But I believe that all that must come true. For, unless it comes true, the world will be laid desolate. And I believe that it can come true. I believe that, by the grace of God, men will awake presently and be men again, and colour and laughter and splendid living will return to a grey civilisation. But that will only come true because a few men will believe in it, and fight for it, and fight in its name against everything that sneers and snarls at that ideal. #Quote by Leslie Charteris
Laughter quotes by Cindy Anstey
#148. Robert gestured Lydia ahead of him across the threshold of number nineteen. Once inside, the atmosphere was entirely different from his previous visits. Silent calm had been replaced by chatter, laughter, and scolding that bounced into the three-story entrance from various regions of the house. There was a smell of newly lit fires, and the accompanying puffs of smoke, as well as the enticing aroma of cooking wafting up from the kitchens. It was a bustling, busy household.
Shodster stepped into the hall and rushed toward Robert, hands outstretched ready to take Robert's hat and cane.
"Thank you, no. Miss Whitfield and I are going for a walk." Robert took a half step back. "We will be leaving shortly."
Looking to Lydia for confirmation, Shodster nodded. "I do beg your pardon, Miss Whitfield. I was not here for the door. It will not happen again."
"Worry not, Shodster." Lydia shrugged. "I learned how to open a door some time ago. The trick is to turn the handle."
The butler blinked at Lydia's lightheartedness. "Yes. That would, indeed, be the trick. #Quote by Cindy Anstey

Laughter quotes by Joseph Conrad
#153. He seemed to hasten the retreat of departing light by his very presence; the setting sun dipped sharply, as though fleeing before our nigger; a black mist emanated from him; a subtle and dismal influence; a something cold and gloomy that floated out and settled on all the faces like a mourning veil. The circle broke up. The joy of laughter died on stiffened lips. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Laughter quotes by Carol Channing
#154. Laughter is much more important than applause. Applause is almost a duty. Laughter is a reward. #Quote by Carol Channing
Laughter quotes by Ruta Sepetys
#155. The scent of Havana tobacco draped thick from the magnolia trees in the front yard. Ice cubes mingled and clinked against the sides of crystal tumblers. Patrick said hello to a group of men sitting on the veranda. I heard the pop of a champagne cork and laughter from inside. #Quote by Ruta Sepetys
Laughter quotes by Michael Dobbs
#156. Nothing lasts, not forever. Not laughter, not lust, not even life itself. Not forever. Which is why we make the most of what we have. #Quote by Michael Dobbs

Laughter quotes by Nely Cab
#160. Galen poked Eryx on the shoulder three times. "Brother, if you feed the cats, they'll keep coming back. Please. I beg you. Stop." Bill and Andy broke out in laughter. I bit my bottom lip to keep from smiling at Galen's rude, yet humorous remark. Jean and Marie took half a turn and walked away. #Quote by Nely Cab
Laughter quotes by Louise Penny
#161. Gabri and Myrna were very rich indeed, rich in the things that matter. In friendships and laughter, in kindness and company. People rich in money might belong at the Inn and Spa, but those rich in other ways belonged in the tiny village of Three Pines. Here, kindness was the real currency. #Quote by Louise Penny
Laughter quotes by Matt Chandler
#162. We think to question God when bridges fall but not to wonder at his grace that every bridge does not. Every fit of laughter, every delectable morsel of food, and every single smile is the result of his mercy and grace; he owes us none of it. Now let me tell you why this is so terrifying. If #Quote by Matt Chandler
Laughter quotes by Tamara Rendell
#163. Sea Hags*
Sea Hags are curious creatures, particularly as they have no need for us.
"Who needs a husband?" they ask in chiming voices.
"Who needs a mother? When we have Poseidon as mate and the great Ocean herself to hold us."
Cascades of laughter behind the sparkling scales of their hands in a manner to call to question both their good sense and their sincerity.
Sea Hags – one could study them for fifty years and find no answer.
(*Shamelessly inspired by Kafka's Sirens: another creature entirely.) #Quote by Tamara Rendell

Laughter quotes by Meng Wang
#166. Absurd laughter is a kind of protest against an absurd existence. #Quote by Meng Wang
Laughter quotes by Amy Gerstler
#167. People hit the sauce in a big way all winter. Amidst blizzards they wrestle unsuccessfully with the dark comedy of their lives, laughter trapped in their frigid gizzards. Meanwhile, the mercury just plummets, like a migrating duck blasted out of the sky by some hunter in a cap with fur earflaps. #Quote by Amy Gerstler
Laughter quotes by Tim Latham
#168. .. they look like they've escaped from a nursing home. Everywhere I turn I see puffy skin & radiant expressions, crinkles & pearls, broad smiles & high hair... Collectively they all lean forward, like bamboo in the wind. Their postures may be cruelled by age but their excitement is adolescent. Cackling & wheezing with laughter the elderly hordes squeeze into the waiting vans & shuffle about... #Quote by Tim Latham
Laughter quotes by Zac Young
#169. There is something curiously therapeutic about bars when everything has silenced: when the laughter halts, the glasses no longer clank together, pool balls stop rolling; when the cigarettes are all packed, and the regulars have dwindled away to beat the sunrise. #Quote by Zac Young
Laughter quotes by Liane Moriarty
#170. She'd found socializing with the school mums difficult enough when her life was in perfect order. The chat, chat, chat, the swirls of laughter, the warmth, the friendliness (most mums were so very nice) and the gentle hint of bitchiness that ran beneath it all. #Quote by Liane Moriarty
Laughter quotes by W. H. Auden
#171. The camera may do justice to laughter, but must degrade sorrow. #Quote by W. H. Auden
Laughter quotes by Angie Frazier
#172. I'm sorry," she said, wishing she could say something more meaningful.
"I'm not. If he'd been a good uncle, I'd have stayed in Boston. Never would have found my way to San Francisco," he said.
Camille knew where the rest of his story led and grinned.
"And you never would have rescued my father from a pickpocket," she added.
He started to laugh, a quiet, almost personal chuckle, like he was thinking about some funny memory. Camille caught the bug of laughter and wanted to join in.
"What is it?" she asked.
"Your father didn't need a rescuer. He caught the pickpocket himself," Oscar answered, a hand on his abdomen from all his laughter. "And then he invited him inside for dinner."
Her smile fell flat. She stared at him, trying to comprehend what he'd just said.
"You?" she asked, dumbfounded. "You were the pickpocket?"
Oscar nodded, scratching the back of his head. "Yeah. I wasn't very good at it."
Her father could have had him arrested or shooed him away without thinking twice. But he'd invited Oscar inside. He gave him work, food…a real chance.
"Why didn't he tell me?" she asked, feeling like she'd been duped once again. All the lies her father had woven to cover up his secrets had become so frayed, Camille wondered if she had truly known him at all.
"To give me a clean slate with everyone. Even you." Oscar moved toward her in cautious, deliberate steps. "We're alone. We should talk."
The pantry was cramped and d #Quote by Angie Frazier
Laughter quotes by Rachel Joyce
#173. They caught hands again, and walked toward the water's edge, two small figures against the black waves. Only halfway there, one of them must have remembered again and it passed like a fresh current of joy between them. They stood at the water's edge, not letting go, and rocked with laughter. #Quote by Rachel Joyce
Laughter quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#174. Breeze chuckled. "He was completely insane, you know. The worse things got, the more he'd joke. I
remember how chipper he was the very day after one of our worst defeats, when we lost most of our
skaa army to that fool Yeden. Kell walked in, a spring in his step, making one of his inane jokes."
"Sounds insensitive," Allrianne said.
Ham shook his head. "No. He was just determined. He always said that laughter was something the
Lord Ruler couldn't take from him. He planned and executed the overthrow of a thousand-year
empire - and he did it as a kind of ... penance for letting his wife die thinking that he hated her. But, he
did it all with a smirk on his lips. Like every joke was his way of slapping fate in the face."
"We need what he had," Elend said. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Laughter quotes by Avijeet Das
#175. Last night, I was a mad man searching for a whiff of your fragrance. The stars and the moon even laughed at me. #Quote by Avijeet Das
Laughter quotes by Julie Anne Long
#176. Do you think Kinkade is Welland-Dowd? she wondered
Chase burst into laughter so booming that every head on the street rotated, startled.
Oh,God. She'd just understood when she'd said it aloud.
Welland-Dowd.
Well-endowed. #Quote by Julie Anne Long
Laughter quotes by Blaine Harden
#177. I am evolving from being an animal,' he said. 'But it is going very, very slowly. Sometime I try to cry and laugh like other people, just to see if it feels like anything. Yet tears don't come. Laughter doesn't come. #Quote by Blaine Harden
Laughter quotes by Jim Valvano
#178. I just got one last thing, I urge all of you, all of you, to enjoy your life, the precious moments you have. To spend each day with some laughter and some thought, to get you're emotions going. #Quote by Jim Valvano
Laughter quotes by Diane Duane
#179. One of the creatures in the front circle shook itself all over and, still shaking, moved very, very slowly toward Spock. He didn't move a muscle. The creature put out a long slender pseudopod, gleaming in the sunshine like suddenly blown glass, and poked Spock's boot with it. Then it made the scratchy sound again, more laughter, and said a word: "Gotcha!" It jumped back into place. All the other creatures began to echo the scratch-laughter. Spock looked around him in mild bemusement. "Captain," he said, "I suspect we have found a kindergarten ... #Quote by Diane Duane
Laughter quotes by Wilkie Collins
#180. Miss Fairlie laughed with a ready good-humour, which broke out as brightly as if it had been part of the sunshine above us ... #Quote by Wilkie Collins
Laughter quotes by Julia Quinn
#181. Daphne Bridgerton, I don't - "
" - like my tone, I know." Daphne grinned. "But you love me."
Violet smiled warmly and wrapped an arm around Daphne's shoulder. "Heaven help me, I do."
Daphne gave her mother a quick peck on the cheek. "It's the curse of motherhood. You're required to love us even when we vex you."
Violet just sighed. "I hope that someday you have children - "
" - just like me, I know." Daphne smiled nostalgically and rested her head on her mother's shoulder. Her mother could be overly inquisitive, and her father had been more interested in hounds and hunting than he'd been in society affairs, but theirs had been a warm marriage, filled with love, laughter, and children. "I could do a great deal worse than follow your example, Mother," she murmured. #Quote by Julia Quinn
Laughter quotes by Jordan Silver
#182. First of all he might be a she we'll be finding that out tomorrow."
"Hold it, fuck no you didn't tell me about that, we need to discuss that shit. I've pretty much come to terms with the whole having a baby deal but no girls Kat that's where I draw the fucking line." Her mouth fell open and she actually shook her head at me before busting into laughter and turned around to leave the room.
"Get back here we're not finished. #Quote by Jordan Silver
Laughter quotes by Leyla Najma

Laughter quotes by Nikki Rowe
#185. I just want a life of happiness, laughter and possibility,
I want a passion that I call my job, to pay my bills.
I want to spend my time, eating good food & making unremarkable memories with the family I have left.
I want friends that can be honest enough to tell me, if I fuck up, so I can fix it & also beautiful enough to know when I'm lieing in my smile.
I want a lover who isn't afraid to love me with every inch of his heart but also fearless in keeping his individual voice as we grow together.
And I will have all of it, because I believe I am worthy of it. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Laughter quotes by Katie McGarry
#186. Think she could have told us we were going to fight the NFL?"
"Would that have stopped you?"
"No"
"Me either."

Laughter quotes by Oprah Winfrey
#187. Live free of regret and filled with as much joy, fun, and laughter as you can stand. You have a choice. Enjoy yourself. #Quote by Oprah Winfrey
Laughter quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#188. I write so others might contemplate things that are out of the ordinary. I write to make people feel - to cause laughter and tears and anger at injustice. I write so the world will imagine and wonder at crazy, incredible truths. I write to have a tiny bit of influence on a universal conscience. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Laughter quotes by Mikhail Bakhtin
#189. Laughter has the remarkable power of making an object come up close, of drawing it into a zone of crude contact where one can finger it familiarly on all sides, turn it upside down, inside out, peer at it from above and below, break open its external shell, look into its center, doubt it, take it apart, dismember it, lay it bare and expose it, examine it freely and experiment with it. Laughter demolishes fear and piety before an object, before a world, making of it an object of familiar contact and thus clearing the ground for an absolutely free investigation of it. Laughter is a vital factor in laying down that prerequisite for fearlessness without which it would be impossible to approach the world realistically. #Quote by Mikhail Bakhtin
Laughter quotes by Algernon Charles Swinburne
#190. I am tired of tears and laughter,
And men that laugh and weep
Of what may come hereafter
For men that sow to reap:
I am weary of days and hours,
Blown buds of barren flowers,
Desires and dreams and powers
And everything but sleep. #Quote by Algernon Charles Swinburne
Laughter quotes by Marjane Satrapi
#191. We can only feel sorry for ourselves when our misfortunes are still supportable. Once this limit is crossed, the only way to bear the unbearable is to laugh at it. #Quote by Marjane Satrapi

Laughter quotes by Miles Kington
#193. So far as good writing goes, the use of the exclamation mark is a sign of failure. It is the literary equivalent of a man holding up a card reading LAUGHTER to a studio audience. #Quote by Miles Kington

Laughter quotes by Cindee Snider Re
#198. God has graciously sewn laughter into our days, bright moments tucked among the shadows of illness and pain, and while those moments don't change our circumstances, they can lessen our pain and shift our hearts toward joy. #Quote by Cindee Snider Re
Laughter quotes by Nora Roberts
#199. It was a mistake to think of houses, old houses, as being empty. They were filled with memories, with the faded echoes of voices. Drops of tears, drops of blood, the ring of laughter, the edge of tempers that had ebbed and flowed between the walls, into the walls, over the years.
Wasn't it, after all, a kind of life?
And there were houses, he knew it, that breathed. They carried in their wood and stone, their brick and mortar a kind of ego that was nearly, very nearly, human. #Quote by Nora Roberts
Laughter quotes by Belle Aurora
#200. Max replies, "Why the fuck n- Oh man, are you gettin' lucky?"
I quickly do up Asher's jeans and stand. Max bursts into laughter when he sees my head ascend and chuckles, "Shit, guys. Warn a brother. Did you at least finish?"
Ash smiles big fluffling my hair, I tell Max, "I never start something I don't plan to finish."
Ash wraps his arm around me and Max shakes his head. He says, "Well if you two don't mind, I think I'm gonna make this a blowjob free zone from now on. #Quote by Belle Aurora
