Fun

Fun is the enjoyment of pleasure and, according to Johan Huizinga, "an absolutely primary category of life, familiar to everybody at a glance right down to the animal level." Fun may be encountered in many human activities during work, social functions, recreation and play, and even seemingly mundane activities of daily living. Fun may often have little to no logical basis, and opinions on whether or not an activity is fun may differ. The distinction between enjoyment and fun is difficult to articulate but real, fun being a more spontaneous, playful, or active event. The perception of time is shortened when one is "having fun".

Famous quotes containing the word fun:

    Let those possess the land, and only those,
    Who love it with a love so strong and stupid
    That they may be abused and taken advantage of
    And made fun of by business, law, and art....
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    As artists they’re rot, but as providers they’re oil wells; they gush. Norris said she never wrote a story unless it was fun to do. I understand Ferber whistles at her typewriter. And there was that poor sucker Flaubert rolling around on his floor for three days looking for the right word.
    Dorothy Parker (1893–1967)

    People must not do things for fun. We are not here for fun. There is no reference to fun in any act of Parliament.
    —A.P. (Sir Alan Patrick)
