Merry Quotations

When the green woods laugh with the voice of joy, And the dimpling stream runs laughing by; When the air does laugh with our merry wit, And the green hill laughs with the noise of it.
William Blake

I had rather have a fool to make me merry than experience to make me sad and to travel for it too!
William Shakespeare

A merry heart doeth good like medicine.
King Solomon

In the 21st century, white America got a wake-up call after 9/11/01. White America and the western world came to realize that people of color had not gone away, faded into the woodwork or just 'disappeared' as the Great White West kept on its merry way of ignoring black concerns.
Jeremiah Wright

A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance.
King Solomon
