A Quote by Richard Jefferies on comedy, death, life, world, and path

Seldom do we realize that the world is practically no thicker to us than the print of our footsteps on the path. Upon that surface we walk and act our comedy of life, and what is beneath is nothing to us. But it is out from that under-world, from the dead and the unknown, from the cold moist ground, that these green blades have sprung.

Richard Jefferies

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on comedy, giving, honesty, jokes, performance, and time

The essence of all jokes, of all comedy, seems to be an honest or well intended halfness; a non performance of that which is pretended to be performed, at the same time that one is giving loud pledges of performance. The balking of the intellect, is comedy and it announces itself in the pleasant spasms we call laugther.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)

A Quote by John Dalberg, Lord Acton on comedy, glory, good, life, and universe

Looking outward to the blackness of space, sprinkled with the glory of a universe of lights, I saw majesty - but no welcome. Below was a welcoming planet. There, contained in the thin, moving, incredibly fragile shell of the biosphere is everything that is dear to you, all the human drama and comedy. That's where life is; that's where all the good stuff is.

Lord Acton Dalberg (1834 - 1902)
