Definition
fun and laughter
  • His temper, therefore, must be well observed: Chide him for faults, and do it reverently, When you perceive his blood inclined to mirth; But, being moody, give him line and scope, Till that his passions, like a whale on ground, Confound themselves with working.
    4.4 — Act 4 Scene 4 — Westminster. The Jerusalem Chamber (30% in)
