It is a fair, even-handed, noble adjustment of things, that while there is infection in disease and sorrow, there is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour.

A Christmas Carol
The most completely lost of all days is that on which one has not laughed
He who laughs on Friday will weep on Sunday
I have always believed that a good laugh was good for both the mental and physical digestion
Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face
The human race has one really effective weapon, and that is laughter
If we may believe our logicians, man is distinguished from all other creatures by the faculty of laughter
No man heartily hates him at who he can laugh
He who laughs best today, will also laughs last

On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
