GAIETY
[ Also see Cheerfulness Good Humor Happiness Laughter Merriment Mirth Moroseness Smiles Vivacity ]

Gaiety is often the reckless ripple over depths of despair.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

Leaves seem light and useless, and idle and wavering, and changeable--they even dance; yet God has made them part of the oak. In so doing, He has given us a lesson, not to deny the stout-heartedness within because we see the lightsomeness without.
      - Leigh Hunt (James Henry Leigh Hunt)

Gaiety is to good-humor as animal perfumes to vegetable fragrance. The one overpowers weak spirits, the other recreates and revives them. Gaiety seldom fails to give some pain; good-humor boasts no faculties which every one does not believe in his own power, and pleases principally by not offending.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Some people are commended for a giddy kind of good-humor, which is as much a virtue as drunkenness.
      - Alexander Pope

Is there anything in life so lovely and poetical as the laugh and merriment of a young girl, who, still in harmony with all her powers, sports with you in luxuriant freedom, and in her mirthfulness neither despises nor dislikes? Her gravity is seldom as innocent as her playfulness; still less that haughty discontent which converts the youthful Psyche into a dull thick, buzzing, wing-drooping nightmoth.
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)

Gaiety pleases more when we are assured that it does not cover carelessness.
      - Madame de Stael (Baronne Anne Louise Germaine de Stael-Holstein)

Gaiety is the soul's health; sadness is its poison.
      - Leszczynski Stanislaus ("Stanislaus I")
