Life can be so much more enjoyable with humor in it. Humor lightens our hearts and helps us see things from a different perspective.
I believe it was Carl Jung who said that you could learn a lot about yourself by seeing what your favorite jokes are. By asking ourselves what kind of humor we find funny and reflecting on how that affects how we are in life can be very insightful.
Inspirational humor can open our minds and our hearts while showing us how to look at our humanity in ways we may not have thought of before.
One Christmas my very perceptive daughter, Debbie, gave each of us humorous posters that seemed to fit us perfectly. The one she gave her very serious sister was a poster by Elbert Hubbard that read, “Don’t take life to seriously, you will never get out alive.”
At times we all take life too seriously and humor helps lighten the burden. The following quotes are my favorite inspirational humor quotes that have helped me reflect but not take life too seriously. I do hope you enjoy them as much as I have!
Love and Peace,
Laughter is a weapon of mass construction.
Honest criticism is hard to take, particularly from a relative, a friend, an acquaintance, or a stranger.

God, so far today, I’ve done all right. I haven’t gossiped, and I haven’t lost my temper. I haven’t been grumpy, nasty or selfish, and I’m really glad of that! But in a few minutes, God, I’m going to get out of bed, and from then on, I’m probably going to need a lot of help. Thank you! Amen

Resentment is like taking poison and hoping the other person dies.
You must learn from the mistakes of others. You can't possibly live long enough to make them all yourself.
I know worrying works, because none of the stuff I worried about ever happened.
You should not take prayer too seriously. There is something playful about God. You only have to look at a penguin… to realize that He likes to play little jokes on creatures.

Life really does begin at forty, up until then you are just doing research.
If you are afraid of being lonely, don't try to be right.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?
My doctor took one look at my gut and refused to believe that I work out. So I listed the exercises I do every day: Jump to conclusions, climb the walls, drag my heels, push my luck, make mountains out of molehills, bend over backward, run around in circles, put my foot in my mouth, go over the edge, and beat around the bush.
