How to use laughter in a sentence?

  1. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    The dark side of personality It sounds a terrible lullaby of the dark side of the person, the music that lulls good in you is a terrible clown killer from horror films, the blind zone of your conscience, he with a bunch of weapons, each of which represents irony and sarcasm, shells of accumulated angry laughter of awareness. Your laugh is his laugh. In his smile are several thousand teeth and all of them are poisonous, corroding the psyche by the philosophy of personal experience. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich

  2. Eric Idle:

    At least one way of measuring the freedom of any society is the amount of comedy that is permitted, and clearly a healthy society permits more satirical comment than a repressive, so that if comedy is to function in some way as a safety release then it must obviously deal with these taboo areas. This is part of the responsibility we accord our licensed jesters, that nothing be excused the searching light of comedy. If anything can survive the probe of humour it is clearly of value, and conversely all groups who claim immunity from laughter are claiming special privileges which should not be granted.

  3. Victor Hugo:

    Separated lovers cheat absence by a thousand fancies which have their own reality. They are prevented from seeing one another and they cannot write nevertheless they find countless mysterious ways of corresponding, by sending each other the song of birds, the scent of flowers, the laughter of children, the light of the sun, the sighing of the wind, and the gleam of the stars-all the beauties of creation.

  4. The Talmud:

    Beware of too much laughter, for it deadens the mind and produces oblivion.

  5. Rosario Castellanos:

    Laughter is the first evidence of freedom.
