Everybody laughs the same in every language because laughter is a universal connection.
No one is laughable who laughs at himself.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
The laughs mean more to me than the adoration. If two girls walk up to me and one says 'you're cute', I'll say thank you, but I appreciate it much more when the other one says 'you make me laugh so much'.
Michael J. Fox
He who laughs has not yet heard the bad news.
If you tell a joke in the forest, but nobody laughs, was it a joke?
The difference between a man of sense and a fop is that the fop values himself upon his dress; and the man of sense laughs at it, at the same time he knows he must not neglect it.
Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield
Nothing shows a man's character more than what he laughs at.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
We are all here for a spell, get all the good laughs you can.
Excessive sorrow laughs. Excessive joy weeps.
Faith, mighty faith, the promise sees, And looks to God alone; Laughs at impossibilities, And cries it shall be done.
When a man bleeds inwardly, it is a dangerous thing for himself; but when he laughs inwardly, it bodes no good to other people.
Man is the only animal that laughs and weeps; for he is the only animal that is struck with the difference between what things are, and what they ought to be.
The only honest art form is laughter, comedy. You can't fake it... try to fake three laughs in an hour - ha ha ha ha ha - they'll take you away, man. You can't.
I like to think 'The God Delusion' is a humorous book. I think, actually, it's full of laughs. And people who describe it as a polarizing book or as an aggressive book, it's just that very often they haven't read it.
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.
What starts the process, really, are laughs and slights and snubs when you are a kid. If your anger is deep enough and strong enough, you learn that you can change those attitudes by excellence, personal gut performance.
Richard M. Nixon
There isn't a single human being who hasn't plenty to cry over, and the trick is to make the laughs outweigh the tears.
I won't do something unless I can get at least two or three good laughs out of it. If I can't, it's not gonna make the team.
A lot of times, you could play me just the laughs from my set, and I could tell you, from the laugh, what the joke was. Because they match.
All that we know is nothing, we are merely crammed wastepaper baskets, unless we are in touch with that which laughs at all our knowing.
D. H. Lawrence
She likes herself, yet others hates, For that which in herself she prizes; And while she laughs at them, forgets She is the thing that she despises.
I am persuaded that every time a man smiles - but much more so when he laughs - it adds something to this fragment of life.

Everybody always laughs because I feel so much more comfortable with, like, a giant paper bag on my whole body and paint on my face. Sometimes I try really hard to take it all off. But inevitably what's underneath is still not a straight edge. And I don't think it ever will be.
I think there should be laughs in everything. Sometimes, it's a slammed door, a pie in the face or just a recognition of our frailties.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
