Laughing out loud

We all need to laugh. Recent studies have shown that he or she who laughs lasts. Norman Cousins, who used laughter to conquer a debilitating disease, writes "Illness is not a laughing matter. Perhaps it ought to be. Laughter moves your internal organs around. It enhances respiration. It is an igniter of great expectation . . . . It has always seemed to me that hearty laughter is a good way to jog internally without having to go outdoors."

-- Richard Lederer, author and Verbivore from an essay titled "He Who Laughs, Lasts"
