“A sense of humour

“A person without a sense of humour is like a wagon
without springs – jolted by every pebble in the road.”
— Henry Ward Beecher

Henry Ward Beecher (June 24, 1813 – March 8, 1887) was a prominent Congregationalist clergyman, social reformer, abolitionist, and speaker in the mid to late 19th century. An 1875 adultery trial in which he was accused of having an affair with a married woman was one of the most notorious American trials of the 19th century.
