The Humility of Laughter

"Laughter is a divine gift to the human who is humble. A proud man cannot laugh because he must watch his dignity; he cannot give himself over to the rocking and rolling of his belly. But a poor and happy man laughs heartily because he gives no serious attention to his ego."

- Terry Lindvall, Surprised by Laughter: The Comic World of C.S. Lewis
