I grok people. I am people…so now I can say it in people
talk. I’ve found out why people laugh. They laugh because it hurts…because it’s
the only thing that’ll make it stop hurting.[…]Jill, with us—us
humans—death is so sad that we must laugh at it. All those
religions—they contradict each other on every other point but each one is
filled with ways to help people be brave enough to laugh even though they
know they are dying.
Robert Heinlein, Stranger
in a Strange Land
saltem si qua mihi de te suscepta fuisset
ante fugam suboles, si quis mihi parvulus aula
luderet Aeneas, qui te tamen ore referret,
non equidem omnino capta ac deserta viderer.
