  1. Emeasoba George:

    Laughter and happiness are priceless gifts. That is to say, we all can effortlessly give or offer both of them to ourselves. Or better still, we can individually decide whether to laugh or not, whether to be happy or not. Therefore, do laugh and remain happy everyday. I mean, be happy and laugh as long as you live. For, it pays to be happy rather than to be unhappy. It's equally better off to laugh than to frown. In case you don't know, denying yourself any of the above priceless gifts (happiness and laughter) is cheating your own self unknowingly. Oh! yes, that's just what you are doing to yourself, if you refuse to laugh and be happy always. -Emeasoba George

  2. Jim Kelly:

    I have no room to complain, if tomorrow the good Lord decides that's my last day, then I'm not going to go down with a frown. I'm going down with a smile on my face, knowing that I've gotten everything out of life.

  3. Charles Kingsley:

    The world goes up and the world goes down, the sunshine follows the rain; and yesterday's sneer and yesterday's frown can never come over again.

  4. Jamie Turner:

    There are conservative elements in Iran that would frown upon these images because they show young people in bikinis and others drinking alcohol. What I see are images of kids who are rebelling against the social norms that they grew up with.

  5. Jonathan Swift:

    Nor do they trust their tongue alone, but speak a language of their own; can read a nod, a shrug, a look, far better than a printed book; convey a libel in a frown, and wink a reputation down.
