While the laughter of joy is in full harmony with our deeper life, the laughter of amusement should be kept apart from it. The danger is too great of thus learning to look at solemn things in a spirit of mockery, and to seek in them opportunities for exercising wit. – Lewis Carroll
Today’s quote is a little jab at humor. Thanks Charles Schulz for giving us a moment of levity. Today’s grind is such that we might miss a few things throughout the day. So, when the answer hits you, take a moment and declare it.
I know the answer! The answer lies within the heart of all mankind! The answer is twelve? I think I’m in the wrong building. – Charles Monroe Schulz
Today’s quote, a little levity for Friday. Sometimes, when we’re in the thick of this thing called life, we forget to laugh a little. So, take a moment, find something that you find humourous and have a giggle; it’ll do your soul good.
To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first, and whatever you hit, call it the target. – Ashleigh Brilliant

I’m a big fan of Mr. Gibran, his words soothed a really rough patch in my life. I still go back and read some of his passages when I need a little extra “oophf.” I’d quote him everyday, but, you’d get bored.
In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed. – Kahlil Gibran
I met some new friends yesterday, or rather, I met them in person.
It’s amazing to me, something so simple as connecting with others can bring so much joy to your day. Yesterday, I got to connect with people I met on the internet, yet, it felt like I’d known them for years. Fast-friendship, made possible though the speed of light (and wires,) solidified in person.
Close friends contribute to our personal growth. They also contribute to our personal pleasure, making the music sound sweeter, the wine taste richer, the laughter ring louder because they are there. – Judith Viorst
This quote reminded me that there’s always something coming or going. Just depends on which end you’re looking at. I’m a very anticipatory person, I constantly over-engineer/over-process things. I’m analytical by nature. I can’t help it.
No mind is much employed upon the present: Recollection and anticipation fill up almost all our moments. – Samuel Johnson

Today is going to be a long, hot day in Portland, Oregon. Try as I might, I cannot shake my case of the “sleeps.” But, we press on, still giving 100% and smiling the whole way. Remember, naps are cheating.
Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough. – William Saroyan
It’s Mother’s day around here and while I’m lucky to have my mother, I’m keenly aware of those who have lost theirs. So, in that, I wish all mother’s out there, with us and no longer, a happy mother’s day. May your day be filled with love and laughter.
When mothers talk about the depression of the empty nest, they’re not mourning the passing of all those wet towels on the floor, or the music that numbs your teeth, or even the bottle of capless shampoo dribbling down the shower drain. They’re upset because they’ve gone from supervisor of a child’s life to a spectator. It’s like being the vice president of the United States. – Erma Bombeck
Heh. Today is Carol Burnett’s birthday! Not only is she groundbreaking, she’s downright hilarious. Laughter, what we need more of, in abundance. So, this reminder that you’ve got to stand back up after eating some pavement should be taken with a grain of salt.
You have to go through the falling down in order to learn to walk. It helps to know that you can survive it. That’s an education in itself. – Carol Burnett
