Harold D. Lasswell Quote

The Ordeal of Richard Feverel (1859)
In the Beauty of the Lilies (1996)
“Punning is an art of harmonious jingling upon words, which, passing in at the ears, excites a titillary motion in those parts; and this, being conveyed by the animal spirits into the muscles of the face, raises the cockles of the heart.”
The Works of the Rev. Jonathan Swift, D. D. Arranged by Thomas Sheridan (J. Johnson, 1803), p. 125, "The Art of Punning"
