“An optimist laughs to forget, a pessimist forgets to laugh.”
“Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”
“As a general rule, the freedom of any people can be judged by the volume of their laughter”
“Try as much as possible to be wholly alive, with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell and when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.”
“Laughter is the spark of the soul."
“You can turn painful situations around through laughter. If you can find humor in anything, even poverty, you can survive it.”
“Laugh at yourself, but don't ever aim your doubt at yourself. Be bold. When you embark for strange places, don't leave any of yourself safely on shore. Have the nerve to go into unexplored territory.”
“A smile starts on the lips, A grin spreads to the eyes, A chuckle comes from the belly; But a good laugh bursts forth from the soul, Overflows, and bubbles all around”
The importance of laughter is so true. It can totally change the vibes in a situation. My friends and I experienced this firsthand recently. We were all pissed off and in a bad mood, but we started to joke around and we ended up laughing so hard that we were crying for twenty minutes straight. I stopped being pissed at people who weren't worth being pissed at and realized how lucky I am to have the amazing friends I was with. Life is too short to be caught being in bad moods. Next time you're in a bad mood, call up some of your friends and have a dance party. Do something spontaneous and crazy. Eat ice cream. And most importantly, LAUGH.
