Sometimes crying or laughing are the only options left, and laughing feels better right now.

Veronica Roth, Divergent

O, to be sure, we laugh less and play less and wear uncomfortable disguises like adults, but beneath the costume is the child we always are, whose needs are simple, whose daily life is still best described by fairy tales.

Leo Rosten

Let us have wine and women, mirth and laughter, sermons and soda water the day after.

George Gordon Byron

Anything with the power to make you laugh over thirty years later isn’t a waste of time. I think something like that is very close to immortality.

Stephen King, Hearts In Atlantis

A tragedy is a tragedy, and at the bottom, all tragedies are stupid. Give me a choice and I’ll take A Midsummer Night’s Dream over Hamlet every time. Any fool with steady hands and a working set of lungs can build up a house of cards and then blow it down, but it takes a genius to make people laugh.

Stephen King

You can’t deny laughter; when it comes, it plops down in your favorite chair and stays as long as it wants.

Stephen King

When you’re young and healthy you can plan on Monday to commit suicide, and by Wednesday you’re laughing again.

Marilyn Monroe

If you can make a girl laugh, you can make her do anything.

Marilyn Monroe

Chuck Palahniuk, Stranger Than Fiction

Hysteria is impossible without an audience. Panicking by yourself is the same as laughing alone in an empty room. You feel really silly.

Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters
