People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.

Dale Carnegie (1888-1955) American writer.

Horse-play, romping, frequent and loud fits of laughter, jokes, and indiscriminate familiarity, will sink both merit and knowledge into a degree of contempt. They compose at most a merry fellow; and a merry fellow was never yet a respectable man.

Lord Chesterfield (1694-1773) British statesman.

If you do not feel yourself growing in your work and your life broadening and deepening, if your task is not a perpetual tonic to you, you have not found your place.

Orison Swett Marden (1850-1924) American author and founder of Success magazine.

Fun is a good thing but only when it spoils nothing better.

George Santayana (1863-1952) American philosopher and poet.

Fun I love, but too much fun is of all things the most loathsome. Mirth is better than fun, and happiness is better than mirth.

William Blake (1757-1827) British poet and painter.

All animals, except man, know that the principal business of life is to enjoy it.

Samuel Butler (1612-1680) British poet and satirist.
