Quote of the Day: Jean Cocteau

From The Difficulty of Being:

The ability to burst out laughing is proof of a fine character. I mistrust those who avoid laughter and refuse its overtures. They are afraid to shake the tree, mindful of the fruits and birds, afraid that someone might notice that nothing comes off their branches.

Like the heart and like sex, laughter functions by erection. Nothing swells it that does not excite it. It does not rise of its own accord.
