Laugh, and the world laughs with you; weep, and you weep alone.” –Ella Wheeler Wilcox, from her poem SOLITUDE (1883)

Well, I don’t know about the world, but if you consider this post of mine ‘laughable,’ it’s a start. So let’s get started.

Life has changed a bit since the above song was recorded in 1925, but much of life is still no laughing matter….which is why many of us can relate to this Audrey Hepburn quote:

I love people who make me laughIt’s probably the most important thing in a person.” I love you too, Audrey — but you make me blush.

Moving on (modest fellow that I am), let us not dwell on me, because nothing is “on me” — at my dwelling, you pay to stay, just like my ever-lovin’ wife.

Speaking of life and love….

….and then there’s Billie Holiday’s take:

“Lose all your blues laughing at life”? Nice work if you can get it — but that’s another song for another day.
