Ten Commandments of Humor

Donna G

Recommended Posts

1. Life is too important to be taken seriously. (Oscar Wilde)

2. We rarely succeed at anything unless we have fun doing it. (Rev. John Naus)

3. You grow up the day you have your first real laugh at yourself. (Ethel Barrymore)

4. There is nothing funnier than the unintended humor of reality. (Steve Allen)

5. Laughter is an act of faith, a declaration of belief in a God who can be trusted...the outer sacrament of

God's life within us. (Tom Mullen, RobertKress)

6. Laughter is internal jogging...the jest medicine. (Norman Cousins, Joel Goodman)

7. When it comes to humor, the 'eyes' have it...the next best thing to solving a problem is seeing humor in it. (Joel Goodman,Frank Clark)

8. He who laughs, lasts! (Joel Goodman)

9. Laughter is the shortest distance between two people. (Victor Borge)

10. We are all here for a spell, get all the good laughs you can. (Will Rogers)

And one more for good measure....

The ability to laugh at life is right at the top, with love and communication, in the hierarchy of our needs. Humor has much to do with pain: it exaggerates the anxieties and absurdities we feel, so that we gain distance and through laughter, relief. (Sara Davidson)
