Kontextus: Human life is basically a comedy. Even its tragedies often seem comic to the spectator, and not infrequently they actually have comic touches to the victim. Happiness probably consists largely in the capacity to detect and relish them. A man who can laugh, if only at himself, is never really miserable.

We may be certain that they will always be amateur musicians, failures in business, and beaten politicians.

The choice of a career must not be left to chance.
