A Quote by Scott Raymond Adams on jokes, laughter, and energy

The amount of energy spent laughing at a joke should be directly proportional to the hierarchical status of the joke teller.

A Quote by Ruth Sentor on caring, feeling, justice, laughter, listening, secrets, time, and words

If I Really Cared . . . • Who you are would be more important to me than who I am. • Where you hurt would be more important than that I'm well. • What you feel would be more important than what I know. • I'd look you in the eyes when you talk to me; • I'd think about what you're saying rather than what I'm going to say next- • I'd hear your feelings as well as your words. • I'd listen without defending. • I'd hear without deciding whether you are right or wrong. • I'd ask you why and how, not just when and where. • I'd laugh with you but not at you. • I'd talk with you and not to you, and I'd know when it's time to do neither. • I wouldn't climb over your walls. • I'd wait until you let me in the gate. • I wouldn't unlock your secrets; • The performances would end. If I really cared about you, • I'd be myself with you • And give you the right to be the same.

Breathless, we flung us on a windy hill, Laughed in the sun, and kissed the lovely grass.

A Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson on business, cheerfulness, contentment, day, duty, gifts, kindness, laughter, play, prayer, and sleep

A Morning Prayer The day returns and brings us the petty round of irritating concerns and duties. Help us to play the man; help us to perform them with laughter and kind faces, let cheerfulness abound with industry. Give us to go blithely on our business all this day. Bring us to our resting beds weary and content and undishonored and grant us in the end the gift of sleep.

A Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson on appreciation, beauty, children, earth, failure, improvement, intelligence, laughter, life, love, men, poetry, respect, soul, success, and world

That a man is successful who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much, who has gained the respect of the intelligent men and the love of children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.

A Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson on achievement, appreciation, children, earth, failure, improvement, inspiration, intelligence, laughter, life, love, memory, men, poetry, respect, soul, success, and world

He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much; who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task, who has left the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who has never lacked appreciation of earth's beauties, nor failed to express it; who has always looked for the best in others and given the best he had; whose life is an inspiration; whose memory a benediction.

I've found out why people laugh. They laugh because it hurts-because it's the only thing that'll make it stop hurting.
