Laughter connects you with people, its almost impossible to maintain any kind of distance or any sense of social hierarchy when your just howling with laughter. Laughter is a force for democracy.

-John Cleese

Gratitude, compassion, caring, love [are] spiritual emotions that make you think of things bigger than yourself. If you seek only your own happiness it can be kind of a selfish thing but once you move to the spiritual emotions and worry about the well-being of the world your life grows.

-Dr. Ed Diener  (Belic, Roko. Happy)
