    Thus spake Zarathustra, by Friedrich Nietzsche: chapter 73.

  2. Radio Psychologist, Dr. Joy Browne always said, so correctly…

    A friend and I had a good laugh after she offered me a care package of toilet paper which had disappeared from all our supermarkets.
    At the end of a phone visit with another friend the other night, we sang a silly bedtime song together. May we all be united in foolishness

  4. Mieux est de rire que de larmes écrire.
    Parce que rire est le propre de l’homme. – Rabelais
    It is better to laugh than to write with tears.
    Because to laugh is the nature
    of man. – Rabelais
