Pain and Life

To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain and play with it.  (Charlie Chaplin) 

Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.  (Joseph Campbell)

Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life.  I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have — life itself.  (Walter Anderson)
