10 Quotes To Make You Happy

How do most of us relax after a hard day’s work? It might take a little coffee or a few glasses of beer. But what is really interesting is to think about how people get through their day to day activities of life when faced with vein-popping stress. Of course, there are new age things like Zen or yoga and apparently they do actually work. But what if you don’t feel like sitting on a meditation cushion for an hour a day for the rest of your life?

Well, you could try humor. Humor is indeed the best medicine there is. Listen to a good comedian for a while, laugh at least 10 times a day and you will go a long way toward protecting yourself against depression and a lot of other modern ills. It’s always better to laugh in the face of trouble if you can.

Did you that we spend progressively less time laughing as we grow older? An adult only laughs half as often as a kid. An elderly person laughs even less. So if you want to make yourself healthier while watching TV, choose the comedy shows!

To start you off laughing right now, here are 10 quotes from Woody Allen, one of the great comedians of our time.

1. “Money is better than poverty, if only for financial reasons.”

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

3. “I do believe there is something out there watching over us. Unfortunately, it’s the government.”

4. “There are worse things in life than death. Have you ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman?”

5. “Love is the answer, but while you’re waiting for the answer, sex raises some pretty interesting questions.”

6. “A fast word about oral contraception. I asked a girl to go to bed with me, she said ‘no’.”

And when it comes to everyday life, he really knows how to make the best out of every possible scenario.

7. “Basically my wife was immature. I’d be at home in the bath and she’d come in and sink my boats.”

8. “I am not afraid of death, I just don’t want to be there when it happens.”

9. “If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans.”

So despite what may happen to all of us in the next ten, twenty, or even thirty years, I guess we all have to see things in a different light if we want to be happy. It takes more courage to accept your fears – but laughter certainly helps.

And finally, keep this in mind always:

10. “The talent for being happy is appreciating and liking what you have, instead of what you don’t have.”
