Showing: 1 - 10 Sean O'Casey Quotes of 11
Laughter is wine for the soul-laughter soft, or loud and deep, tinged through with seriousness.
We couldn't live without comedy.
Oh Lord, give us a sense of humor with courage to manifest it forth, so that we may laugh to shame the pomps, the vanities, the sense of self-importance of the Big Fellows that the world sometimes sends among us, and who try to take our peace away.
Nothing seems too high or low for the humorist; he is above honor, above faith, preserving sense in religion and sanity in life.
You cannot put a rope around the neck of an idea; you cannot put an idea up against a barrack-square wall and riddle it with bullets; you cannot confine it in the strongest prison cell that your slaves could ever build.
A laugh is the loud echo of a sigh; a sigh the faint echo of a laugh.
Laughter tends to mock the pompous and the pretentious; all man's boastful gadding about, all his pretty pomps, his hoary customs, his wornout creeds, changing the glitter of them into the dullest hue of lead.
So let us all who pray ask for what most of them need badly, a sense of humor to lighten their way through life, making it merrier for themselves and easier for others.
Laughter is wine for the soul - laughter soft, or loud and deep, tinged through with seriousness ... the hilarious declaration made by man that life is worth living.
A lament in one ear, maybe, but always a song in the other.
