You don't stop laughing because you grow older . You grow older because you stop laughing- Maurice Chevalier
Laughter is termed the best medicine in the world next to an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Laughter is really good, there are times when you come across a person laughing and their mirth just rubs off on you that you unconsciously laugh along not minding what the joke is all about.
That’s a good laugh, and people should always find occasions to laugh, make them up and laugh. It cheers you up and makes you feel good, it makes everything thing around you seem trivial whereas before your laughter it looked like a huge mountain. It helps ease tension and helps you view things in a different light. Suddenly the world seems a better place and the people actually very lovable.
