A Thought for Thursday

H.L. Mencken (1880-1956) was a pretty astute observer of human affairs. Here's a good example of that:

"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."
