To be playful and serious at the same time is possible, in fact it defines the ideal mental condition
John Dewey

True humor…is love. The essence of humor is sensibility;

warm, tender fellow-feeling with all forms of existence.

Carlyle
Men of humor are always in some degree men of genius.
Coleridge
It is important to educate ourselves in humor because it does not tolerate anger, hopelessness, and helplessness.
Höfner & Schachtner
Humor is not a feeling but a philosophy of life.
Wittgenstein
1. Humor is one of the most important things in our lives. For example, the undesirability of having wealth and love without humor would seem to make them secondary to the value of humor. 2. Humor may be used as a powerful method of inquiry. 3. Humor is a significant form of therapy. 4. Humor is an aesthetic form. 5. Humor may be used to humanize.

Warren Shibles

Humor may be seen as an aesthetic emotion or form of beauty.
