Quote du Jour: Don't Leave 'em Laughin'

What is funny about us is precisely that we take ourselves too seriously. We are rather insignificant little bundles of energy and vitality in a vast organization of life. But we pretend that we are the very center of this organization. This pretension is ludicrous; and its absurdity increases with our lack of awarness of it. The less we are able to laugh at ourselves the more it becomes necessary for others to laugh at us. ~ Reinhold Niebuhr

I'm certainly not laughing at you, Lynne. I'm trying to remind myself not to cause others to laugh at me.
