Hmmm...still tryna digest that quote from Johnny Combat-Zen
just above (great name for a punky band, BTW).
Here's one from another philosophicist, Umberto Eco:
"Perhaps the mission of those who love humanity is to make ppl laugh at the truth
...b/c the truth lies in learning to free ourselves from insane passion for the truth."
In an entirely diff realm, I like the contrast in the 20th C's most exemplary artist team: John Lennon & Sir Paulie McCartney.
[Not only would they never likely offered JL a knighthood, but he'd already sent back his earlier MBE award]
Macca: "I gotta admit it's gettin' better---"
Lennon cuts him short: "---Couldn't get no worse !"
Mac: "I've got a feeling, a feeling deep inside, Oh Yeah!"
Lennon: "I've got an itchy bum..."
Somehow it sorta makes sense
that those 2, despite all their diffs in temperament, wound up together, eh ?
