The Humor in Our Everyday Life

The world as they say is a harsh place to live in. I beg to differ with this conclusion though. I may be sometimes on a downward spiral toward depression but that does not make me resign to the fact that life is indeed unfair. All we have to do is maintain a positive mental attitude and always believe in the oft-repeated statement that laughter is the best medicine. I have collected some funny quotes about life. These quotes encompass life in general.

"If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side."

This one is for those who do not seem to see the bright side of life. Life may not always be peaches and cream but we have lots of things to be thankful for. Today may be not be your lucky day but for sure tomorrow will be better. You may not get the job you have been longing for but there's a reason for everything.

"Keep your sense of humor. There's enough stress in the rest of your life to let bad shots ruin a game you're supposed to enjoy."

I can't live a day without having a good laugh. This is one antidote to a wounded soul. Life is indeed short so why waste my precious time sulking and regretting the mistakes I have done from the past. A friend once told me, "No use crying over spilled milk." it will not change the situation you have gotten yourself into. Regrets will only make you feel all the more resentful of the situation. Laugh, live and move on.

"Life is a foreign language: all men mispronounce it."

Have you ever wondered why some people are successful and others are not? I really marveled at the fact that people who really succeed are those who were not born with the proverbial silver spoon in their mouth. They are the ones who were left in the cold, dark street with no place to roost in. It's their perseverance that made them successful. Life is full of complexities but if you are brave enough to decipher its intricacies there is no reason to go through your life with any regrets or misgivings.

"Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem."

There are lots of contributing factors why people commit suicide. One of which is when they lose their hope. It's really not easy to get rid of these morbid thoughts of suicide. Reassuring clich矇s will not even help in making the situation better. One question that I have in mind that lingers like a smoke hovering over the furnace is the question of why people are so afraid of living life? Problems are all but temporary. Death is permanent.

"May your life be like toilet paper... Long and useful."

This one really got me... in a funny way. The toilet paper is a blunt description of what life is supposed to be: long and useful. Life is not that short if we know how to live it.
