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.”

ā€” Terry Lindvall, Surprised By Laughter: The Comic World of C. S. Lewis (Thomas Nelson, 1996), p. 131.
