It is healthy to laugh
when you are happy, people will want to be around you and share your happiness, but when you are sad, people will avoid you.
au mois d'avril, la chèvre rit
celui qui rit, qu'il craigne de pleurer
c'est jean qui pleure et jean qui rit
c'est se rendre complice d'une impertinence que d'en rire
bien dire fait rire, bien faire fait taire
chaumière où l'on rit vaut mieux que palais où l'on pleure
