    " In the maintenance of health and the cure of disease cheerfulness is a most important factor," says Dr. A. J. Sanderson.

    " Its power to do good like a medicine is not an artificial stimulation of the tissues, to be followed by reaction and greater waste, as is the case with many drugs ; but the effect of cheerfulness is an actual life-giving influence through a normal channel, the results of which reach every part of the system.

    It brightens the eye, makes ruddy the countenance, brings elasticity to the step, and promotes all the inner forces by which life is sustained. The blood circulates more freely, the oxygen comes to its home in the tissues, health is promoted, and disease is banished."

    It is amazing how strong people can be when they can maintain that cheerfulness. In the long term, it's like a choice to be happy.

    By the way, Herbie, you've been digging up some wonderful quotes from some old doctors. While I'm a big fan of medical science, I think that some of the wisdom of those old physicians has been lost. Where are you finding all of these old books?
