Good Humor Man

Good humor is a philosophic state of mind; it seems to say to Nature that we take her no more seriously than she takes us.  I maintain that one should always talk of philosophy with a smile.  We owe it to the Eternal to be virtuous; but we have the right to add to this tribute our irony as a sort of personal reprisal.
