Laughter – Actually Good for You

19 Jun

Me and Mr Wibbs, we’ve been having a lot of laughs lately 🙂


Remember, men need laughter sometimes more than food.
(Anna Fellows Johnston)

A good, real, unrestrained, hearty laugh is a sort of glorified internal massage, performed rapidly and automatically. It manipulates and revitalizes corners and unexplored crannies of the system that are unresponsive to most other exercise methods.
(Author unknown, from an editorial in New York Tribune, quoted in Quotations for Special Occasions by Maud van Buren)

Laughter is a tranquilizer with no side effects. (Arnold Glasow)

At the height of laughter, the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities.
(Jean Houston)

Mirth is God’s medicine. Everybody ought to bathe in it.
(Henry Ward Beecher)

So many tangles in life are ultimately hopeless that we have no appropriate sword other than laughter.
(Gordon W. Allport)

Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.
(Victor Hugo)

Laughter is the shock absorber that eases the blows of life.

Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand.
(Mark Twain)
