“ Life is a mystery to be lived, rather than a problem to be solved .”
“Laughter has meditative power and medicinal powers. It certainly changes your very chemistry; it changes your brain waves, it changes your intelligence—you become more intelligent. The parts of your mind that have been asleep suddenly wake up. The laughter reaches to the innermost part of your brain, to your heart. A man of laughter cannot have a heart attack. A man of laughter cannot commit suicide. A man of laughter automatically comes to know the world of silence, because when laughter cease suddenly there is silence. And each time laughter becomes deeper it is followed by deeper silence.”
