We never valued this poor seat of England,
  And therefore, living hence, did give ourself
    To barbarous license; as 'tis ever common
      That men are merriest when they are from home.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (King Henry at I, ii)

So the gods bless me,
  When all our offices have been oppressed
    With riotous feeders, when our vaults have wept
      With drunken spilth of wine, when every room
        Hath blazed with lights and brayed with minstrelsy,
          I have retired me to a wasteful cock
            And set mine eyes at flow.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life of Timon of Athens
         (Steward at II, ii)

With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come,
  And let my liver rather heat with wine
    Than my heart cool with mortifying groans.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Merchant of Venice
         (Gratiano at I, i)   BUY VARYING HARE USED BOOK  

Therefore they thought it good for hear a play
  And frame your mind to mirth and merriment,
    Which bars a thousand harms and lengthens life.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Taming of the Shrew
         (Messenger at induction, ii)

Merrily, merrily shall I live now
  Under the blossom that hangs on the bough.
      - William Shakespeare, The Tempest
         (Ariel at V, i)

Jog on, jog on, the foot-path way,
  And merrily hent the stile-a.
    A merry heart goes all the day,
      Your sad tires in a mile-a.
      - William Shakespeare, The Winter's Tale
         (Song at IV, iii)

Address yourself to entertain them sprightly,
  And let's be red with mirth.
      - William Shakespeare, The Winter's Tale
         (Florizel at IV, iv)

The glad circle round them yield their souls
  To festive mirth, and wit that knows no gall.
      - James Thomson (1), Seasons--Summer
         (l. 403)

'Tis merry in hall
  Where beards wag all.
      - Thomas Tusser,
        Five Hundred Points of Good Husbandry--August's Abstract
