Cheerfulness is always to be kept up if a man is out of pain; but mirth, to a prudent man, should always be accidental. It should naturally arise out of the occasion, and the occasion seldom be laid for it.
      - Sir Richard Steele

The way to cheerfulness is to keep our bodies in exercise and our minds at ease.
      - Sir Richard Steele

I live in a constant endeavor to fence against the infirmities of ill health, and other evils of life, by mirth; being firmly persuaded that every time a man smiles, but much more when he laughs, it adds some thing to his fragment of life.
      - Laurence Sterne

Such a man, truly wise, creams off Nature leaving the sour and the dregs for philosophy and reason to lap up.
      - Jonathan Swift

Not by constraint or severity shall you have access to true wisdom, but by abandonment and childlike mirthfulness.
      - Henry David Thoreau

If good people would but make their goodness agreeable, and smile instead of frowning in their virtue, how many would they win to the good cause!
      - James Usher

A cloudy day is no match for a sunny disposition.
      - William Arthur Ward

As long as there is a chance of the world getting through its troubles, I hold that a reasonable man must behave as though he were sure of it. If at the end your cheerfulness was not justified, at any rate you will have been cheerful.
      - H.G. Wells (Herbert George Wells)

God is glorified, not by our groans, but our thanksgivings; and all good thought and good action claim a natural alliance with good cheer.
      - Edwin Percy Whipple

The inborn geniality of some people amounts to genius.
      - Edwin Percy Whipple

There seem to be some persons, the favorites of fortune and darlings of nature, who are born cheerful. "A of star danced" at their birth. It is no superficial visibility, but a bountiful ands beneficent soul that sparkles in the4r eyes and smiles on their lips. Their inborn geniality amounts to genius,--the rare and difficult genius which creates sweet and wholesome character, and radiates cheer.
      - Edwin Percy Whipple

A cheerful life is what the Muses love,
  A soaring spirit is their prime delight.
      - William Wordsworth, From the Dark Chambers
