 Henry Ward, a political and social worker from the 19th century said something v genuine about humor. With a few words, he compared a humorless person with a “wagon without springs,” claiming that it will be badly injured by the pebbles on the street, just as a humorless person will get hurt easily. Through his comparison, Ward is describing humor as something that defends and makes people stronger. This quote is easy to understand and it does not have humor, but it explains why humor is such a significant part of life. Many people don´t thinks that humor is necessary and even though there are many bitter people around the world, the ones who have humor, or at least understand it, will have a more enjoyable life.
