“A playful path is the shortest road to happiness.”-
Bernard de Koven
"Fun is a spiritual thing. It is often a healing thing. It changes our perspective: on ourselves, our bodies, our relationships, our community. It changes our energy, our mood, our worldview. It brings us moments of happiness, of peace, freedom. It frees us even from ourselves.
- Bernard De Koven
“Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.”― Victor Borge

“Sometimes crying or laughing are the only options left, and laughing feels better right now.” ― Veronica Roth, Divergent
Laughter fills your lungs and body with oxygen, deep-clears your breathing passages and exercises your lungs. You can breath far more easily after a laughter session, it opens the sinuses. This is really important for people who don't get regular aerobic exercise.
"If we're destroying our trees and destroying our environment and hurting animals and hurting one another and all that stuff, there's got to be a very powerful energy to fight that. I think we need more love in the world. We need more kindness, more compassion, more joy, more laughter. I definitely want to contribute to that."
"When you are playful, when you are feeling, being playful, you are walking a playful path. When you are having fun, when you are graceful, when you are in harmony with your self in the world, when you feel alive, when you are delighted and delightful, surprised and surprising, loving, caring; you are dancing on a playful path.
When you are playing, when you are at play, in play,when you are fully playing, when you are playing playfully, you are creating a playful path.When you stop playing, stop being playful, when you become inflexible,unresponsive, insensitive, humorless, fearful, frenzied, you are on some other path entirely.
"The most wasted of all days is one without laughter". e. e. cummings
