Marginalia, no.47

Look for the ridiculous in everything and you will find it.

~ Jules Renard, Journal

This is both a caution, I think, and a comfort.  On the one hand, it’s not advisable to wear googly-eye glasses when you want a clear look at something serious or threatening.  On the other hand, when surrounded by angry accusers you can always imagine them in their underwear.
