"Laughing is a celebration of the good, and it's also how we deal
bad. Laughing, like crying, is a good way of eliminating toxins from
body. Since the mind and body are connected, you use an amazi
of muscles when you laugh."

"We are funny."
Ashlyn and Sara,
Queens, New York
"We laugh because we are happy. Without laughing, this world would be dark."
"Laughing is enjoyment. This is very strange. I have never seen this before. It looks like feathers."
"I don't know where the heck laughing comes from.
It's good for your health, I know that much. There's so much sadness in the world, it's a wonder you can even laugh at all.
Like when I lost my lady. I was 25 years with her. I cried plenty. I still wake in the morning and I think, 'Where is she?'
But life goes on. You can't go around being an old grump all the time."
