A Collection of Funny Quotes

Why do I have a page full of funny quotes on a web site about brainpower? Because humor is essentially a lateral thinking process, and can be a form of brain exercise. You are lead in one direction and then surprised by a sudden turn, or you are shown a different way to look at something. In addition to encouraging creative thought, humor causes a release of endorphins that makes you feel good, and wakes up your brain.
