National Fun At Work Day is observed on April 1 as a way to add a touch of humor as well as laughter to the otherwise cutthroat office culture.

The day encourages employees to put their wit to the best use, and make their colleagues share a few light moments together.

Many people believe work and play don't go hand-in-hand, but that's not the case for those who are joyful everywhere, even at the workplace.

National Fun At Work Day is for those people who never miss a chance to burst out into hearty laughter despite weeks' worth of workload stretching out before them.

To mark the occasion, here are some quotes that highlight the importance of fun at work. (Courtesy: Quotemaster)

  • "Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking, don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you will know when you find it."- Steve Jobs
  • "People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing."- Dale Carnegie
  • "I can say the willingness to get dirty has always defined us as a nation, and it's a hallmark of hard work and a hallmark of fun, and dirt isn't the enemy."- Mike Rowe
