“Success: To laugh often and much, to win the respect

of intelligent people and the affection of children, to

earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the

 betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find

the best in others, to leave the world a bit better,

whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a

redeemed social condition; to know even one life has

breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have



- Ralph Waldo Emerson


Laughing just gets better, isn’t it? When I thought I have covered every possible benefit of laughing as I wrote on this post, I found this quote from the legendary writer Ralph Waldo Emerson. It speaks volume.

So, why keep on frowning?

Successful people laugh more often. They work hard, play hard and also laugh hard!

Do as they do it.

Besides, Botox is expensive – but smile is natural and more pleasing.

Keep on laughing – and spread happiness with it!



  1. Hello, Thank you for the ‘like’ Emmerson is certainly someone I will read more. On happiness it seems he was more of a social creature than I..I think the ultimate is inner peace..though the situations he offers are certainly fun..I feel they are enjoyed most when my mind has no expectations or demands..Nice..Peace Tony

  5. Laughing and smiling actually relaxes your facial muscles. When you frown or look angry you use so many more muscles and not in a good way ;-)

    Thanks for keeping us happy

  6. The quote you used above is one of my favorite one about success. I used it in a blog post here >>

    Love this post! Sums up success for me! I recently wrote about the same, how success shouldn’t be measured by a monetary figure, but by how much good you have done and fulfillment you received!
    Funny that you mention laughter today.. Last night my 3-yr-old-son and I watched THE SANTA CLAUSE while everyone else at home was busy doing something else. I literally laughed out loud so many times during the movie and he just watched me and laughed right along. It was a good 2 hours, taking a break from the world. :)

    P.S. I liked your FB page, like mine back :) Thanks for all the likes on my posts!
