Life would be dull, and gloomy if people did not have a sense of humour, if there were no laughter. It is through humour, and laughter, that we soften some of life’s demand on us. And once we can find laughter, no matter how painful the situation might be, we can survive it.
Cultivate, and develop your sense of humour because it is when things are not going well that we need our humour most.
Enjoy today's selection of quips. They are humorous, and at the same time, there is a lot of truth in them. I hope it brings on a smile at least.
