“The most lost of all days, is that in which we have not laughed

-Probably Nicolas Chamfort, from his original quote of “La plus perdue de toutes les journées est celle où l’on n’a pas ri.”
Often accredited to Charlie Chaplin, Steve Martin, or Groucho Marx

    There are therapy classes were people go to just to laugh. The therapist begins and all quickly follow. I think it’s easy as laughter is infectious – I guess that’s why the tv comedies have canned laughter.

    Hearing a child’s laughter is the best there is. It’s the purest form of happiness. 🙂

      ❤❤ How right you are. Do you get to hear children’s laughter often?

      I need to look into its history then. We often pull quotes from the middle of a bigger picture.

    One of the keys to our marriage is that my wife and I enjoy laughing together. We both can laugh at ourselves and the absurdities of life. Laughter makes every day a little better

  6. True story, a man was quite ill. He told his assistant to go and find all types of comedy movies, etc.,
    The assistant did so, the ill man watched them and he laughed his way to better health.
    I first read this story in Reader’s Digest back in the 80’s.
    King David wrote, ” a merry heart doeth good like a medicine, but a contrite spirit drieth the bones”
