Pursuit of Happiness and Otherwise Quotes on Life


“To me, there are three things we all should do every day. We should do this every day of our lives.

1- Number one is laugh. You should laugh every day.

2- Number two is think. You should spend some time in thought.

3- And number three is, you should have your emotions moved to tears, could be happiness or joy.

But think about it. If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special.”
