A Saturday Quote

This is from the great Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard  (1813-1855):

"A fire broke out backstage in a theatre. The clown came out to warn the public; they thought it was a joke and applauded. He repeated it; the acclaim was even greater. I think that's just how the world will come to an end: to general applause from wits who believe it's a joke."
