My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept love in return. [Maya Angelou]
My great hope is to laugh way more than I cry. To DO something each day that makes a difference. And to love with an open heart. Sometimes there may BE love in return, but I will choose to love anyway.
But when you're in front of an audience and you make them laugh at a new idea, you're guiding the whole being for the moment. No one is ever more him/herself than when they really laugh. Their defenses are down. It's very Zen-like, that moment. They are completely open, completely themselves when that message hits the brain and the laugh begins. That's when new ideas can be implanted. If a new idea slips in at that moment, it has a chance to grow. [George Carlin, Last Words]
Years ago I saw George Carlin. I was sick and I went anyway. I felt horrible, but he just kept making me laugh. Laughing times seem to stand taller than the others I remember.
There's nothing more contagious than the laughter of young children; it doesn't even have to matter what they're laughing about. [Criss Jami]
I love you, Currie
