A Quote by Henry van Dyke on grief, laughter, life, music, quiet, rest, silence, songs, soul, and world

If all the skies were sunshine Our faces would be fain To feel once more upon them The cooling splash of rain. If all the world were music, Our hearts would often long For one sweet strain of silence, To break the endless song If life were always merry, Our souls would seek relief, And rest from weary laughter In the quiet arms of grief.

You were intended not only to work, but to rest, laugh, play, and have proper leisure and enjoyment. To develop an all-around personality you must have interest outside of your regular vocation that will serve to balance your business responsibilities.

A Quote by Greg Webster on bitterness, cynicism, laughter, past, and time

A couple months ago I noticed that I hadn't really laughed for a long time. . . . That's come back quite well, I'm enjoying more things. . . . I'd say that I've almost completely recovered from the past few years, still cynical, but not really bitter.
