Agnes Repplier – Quoted

We cannot really love anybody with whom we never laugh.

–Agnes Repplier, US essayist (1855 – 1950)


“My moments of greatest joy come when my wife laughs, and makes me laugh, at my idiosyncrasies. It’s a treasure to have someone love you enough to make the extra effort to have you laugh at your foibles.”

–David ‘checkerhead’ Aiken

It’s easy to look at someone else’s faults and criticize and put down, but it’s usually more effective to point things out in a way that makes the person realize that they live in a self-made world full of the oddest behaviors, then have them laugh about it.
