The Art of Laughter
Meet the challenge of life with the art of laughter . . . Take a tip from Will Rogers who observed people with laughter in his eyes and love in his heart declared: “I never met a man I didn’t like.”
Learn laughter from little children by thinking their thoughts, dreaming their dreams and playing their games.
Develop a playful attitude toward problems; toss them around; handle them with a light touch.
Practice the advice of the psychiatrist who gives his normal patients this prescription; “Don’t take yourself so damned seriously.”
Use laughter as a safety valve to keep yourself sane and relaxed. Enerson said it well: “The perception of the Comic is a tie of sympathy with other men, a pledge of sanity. We must learn by laughter as well as by tears and terror.”
~ Wilferd A. Peterson, The Art of Living (1961)
