Relaxing after a hard day’s work may take a little coffee, or maybe even a few rounds of beer! But what’s really interesting is how different people go through daily life when faced with vein-popping stress!
Is there room for people who actually smell the roses while on the move? There must be something to this “mind over matter” thing!
In fact, humor can be the best medicine sometimes. Plenty of people pay good money to listen to a comedian, so it must be worth something! And it can serve as a great form of stress relief.
One such comedian is Woody Allen. That’s one guy who gives you in-your-face bluntness without even trying. You can come up with any subject, and he’s bound to mock it, leaving you laughing instead of being upset.
Here are a few inspirational quotes from Woody Allen:
“Money is better than poverty, if only for financial reasons.”
“I believe there is something out there watching us. Unfortunately, it’s the government.”
“There are worse things in life than death. Have you ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman?”
“Basically my wife was immature. I’d be at home in the bath and she’d come in and sink my boats.”
“I am not afraid of death, I just don’t want to be there when it happens.”
“I am thankful for laughter, except when milk comes out of my nose.”
“If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans.”
Despite what may or may not happen to us in the next ten, twenty, or even thirty years, we have to look at it with a sense of humor. And whether you’re religious or not, it takes courage to accept your fears and learn how to deal with them with a smile on your face.
So to sum things up, here’s a final nugget of wisdom from Woody Allen.
“The talent for being happy is appreciating and liking what you have, instead of what you don’t have.”
