Practice makes perfect, and so practice smiling as you die in little bits and pieces: when incarcerated in a traffic jam, required to wait endlessly in a doctor's office, upon hearing some scandalous gossip about yourself, accidentally losing hours of work on your computer, and any one of life's deadly array of difficulties. Practice, practice, and practice smiling, and you will develop the habit of a happy death.

Edward Hays in Chasing Joy
