Quote of the Day

"What stops me from taking myself seriously, even though I am essentially a serious person, is that I find myself extremely ridiculous, not in a the sense of the small scale ridiculousness of slap-stick comedy, but rather in the sense of ridiculousness that seems intrinsic to human life and that manifests itself in the simplest actions and the most extraordinary gestures. For example, I can never shave without starting to laugh; it seems so idiotic." 

-Flaubert to Louise Colet
