Humor can only exist when people are still capable of recognizing some border between the important and the unimportant. Nowadays, this border has become unrecognizable...

If we cannot accept the importance of the world, which considers itself important, if in the midst of that world our laughter can find no echo, we have but one choice: to take the world as a whole and make it the object of our game, to turn it into a toy...

The age of tragedy can be ended only with a revolt of frivolity. Tragedy will be driven from the world like a ludicrous old actress, clutching her heart and declaiming in a hoarse voice.

- Milan Kundera
