"It is not time for mirth and laughter, the cold, gray dawn of the morning after."
"I love such mirth as does not make friends ashamed to look upon one another next morning."
"Scotsmen are metaphisical and emotional, they are sceptical and mystical, they are romantic and ironic, they are cruel and tender, and full of mirth and despair."
"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."
