The Lighter Side of Melancholy

“The more one suffers, the more sense, I believe, one gains for the comic.  Only by the most profound suffering, does one gain real competence in the comic.”  – Soren Kierkegaard, Stages on Life’s Way

“Instead of sorrow, you choose a joy that is sorrow’s changeling.  This joy you have now chosen, the laughter of despair.” – Soren Kierkegaard’s Judge William
