“A tragedy is a tragedy, and at the bottom, all tragedies are stupid.

 

Give me a choice and I’ll take A Midsummer Night’s Dream over Hamlet every time.

 

Any fool with steady hands and a working set of lungs can build up a house of cards and then blow it down,

 

but it takes a genius to make people laugh.”

“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory.

 

If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy,

don’t we consider it his duty to escape?

 

. . .If we value the freedom of mind and soul,

if we’re partisans of liberty,

then it’s our plain duty to escape,

 

and to take as many people with us as we can!”

 

[ J. R. R. Tolkien ]

“I think the only way to get through this life is laughing hard and constantly,
