Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. 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.
—  Ernest Hemingway


Why Do We Laugh?

Chuckles, chortles, giggles, or guffaws… let’s face it. Laughing is really weird. Why do we do it?

It’s one of the few universal human behaviors that reaches beyond borders of language and culture. While laughter is usually associated with humor, scientists have found that most laughter has little to do with funny business and more about bringing people together.

Also, I would apologize for all the bad jokes in this video, but the truth is that I’m not sorry, not even a little bit 😎

You know how you’re really in love?
When they make cliché’s not feel cliché anymore.
When they run on to your train just to tell you they love you, when they look deep into your eyes and tell you how beautiful you are, when they take you to their special places, kiss you on the forehead to wake you up in the morning, drive to you at a stupid time of night just to see you. When all the clichés you laughed at in movies finally become a reality, that’s when you know you’ve found someone who will always make you feel like you’re in your own love story.

Laughter is Self Love

Learn to laugh. Seriousness is a sin, and it is a disease. Laughter has tremendous beauty, a lightness. It will bring lightness to you, and it will give you wings to fly. And life is so full of opportunities. You just need the sensitivity. And create chances for other people to laugh. Laughter should be one of the most valued, cherished qualities of human beings - because only man can laugh, no animals are capable of it. Because it is human, it must be of the highest order. To repress it is to destroy a human quality.
