do you quote quotes? sometimes i can't always remember quotes...the exact wording or phrasing. i don't necessarily recall who may have said the words either. seems my memory is lacking in that regard. but i love quotes anyway.

in fact, i love words and how they fit together; their make-up and syntax. the way they can float off our lips and tongues with ease. then, too, the way they can give us pause...the struggle with which we can engage with them fighting to say what we mean and mean what we say....when it is not so effortless. the battle that can ensue. still there is beauty in the language and the rhythm of our speaking.

i was thinking today about laughter and a few quotes that i like that came to mind. i thought it would be fun to share them. i feel that laughter is food for the soul and whenever possible we should feed our souls with as much laughing as we can; smiles, giggles, chuckles, guffaws, hearty snorts, laughing that makes you cry or makes milk squirt out your nose you know what i mean? where you feel really alive!

my laughter faves:

a good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor's book. ~irish proverb

the most wasted of all days is one without laughter. ~e.e. cummings

what soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul. ~yiddish proverb

what are your favorite quotes?

happy day.....
