Quote of the Day (Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., on ‘Laughter and Tears’)

“Laughter and tears are meant to turn the wheels of the same machinery of sensibility; one is wind-power, and the other water-power; that is all.” —New England physician, poet and essayist Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (1809-1894), The Autocrat of the Breakfast Table (1858)
