Marc Faber on Christmas and humor

Christmas is a time for reflection. It must also be a time for humor and laughter. 

Bill Cosby opined that, “Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it,” 

Chamfort wrote that, “The most wasted day of all is that on which we have not laughed,” 

Seneca observed that, “It better befits a man to laugh at life than to lament it,” 

Ludwig Wittgenstein thought that, “Humor is not a mood but a way of looking at the world” whereas Ellen Glasgow pronounced that, “First I was an idealist (that was early - fools are born, not made...); next I was a realist; now I am a pessimist, and, by Jove! if things get much worse I'll become a humorist.”
