Inspiring Quotes Wednesday

Bella and her BFF Jilli


Norman Cousins

Hearty laughter is a good way to jog internally without having to go outdoors.

Cat Stevens

I always knew looking back on my tears would bring me laughter, but I never knew looking back on my laughter would make me cry.

Woody Allen

I am thankful for laughter, except when milk comes out of my nose.

Robert Fulghum

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.

Yakov Smirnoff

I believe that laughter is a language of God and that we can all live happily ever laughter.

Linda Ellerbee

I have always felt that laughter in the face of reality is probably the finest sound there is and will last until the day when the game is called on account of darkness. In this world, a good time to laugh is any time you can.
