C.N. Douglas, comp. Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical. 1917.


To a young heart everything is fun.


Next to the virtue, the fun in this world is what we can least spare.

Agnes Strickland.

Fun is a sugar-coated physic.

H. W. Shaw.

Fun has no limits. It is like the human race and face; there is a family likeness among all the species, but they all differ.


There is nothing like fun, is there? I haven’t any myself, and I do like it in others. Oh, we need it!—we need all the counterweights we can muster to balance the sad relations of life. God has made sunny spots in the heart: why should we exclude the light from them?
