Abderian – given to laughter, or inclined to incessant or foolish merriment

“I think she was able to bring out his Abderian nature, for when she teased him his eyes lit up and his cheeks puffed out, and it was not long before he was laughing uncontrollably, shaking like jello.”

Thought for the Day:

“… a loveless world is a dead world, and always there comes an hour when one is weary of prisons, of one’s work, and of devotion to duty, and all one craves for is a loved face, the warmth and wonder of a loving heart.”

– Albert Camus, “The Plague”

Thought for the Day:

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”

– Buddha
