“A wise man sat in an audience and cracked a joke. Everybody laughs like crazy. After a moment, he cracked the same joke again. This time less people laughed. He then cracked the same joke again and again. When there was no laughter in the crowd he smiled and said: You can't laugh at the same joke again and again, but why do you keep crying over the same thing over and over again?”
