“Laughing was considered vulgar, because the mouth is opened wide and the teeth become visible. For sure laughing has its origin in the pleasure of a sure catch or a sure meal. A person who falls reminds us of an animal that one was trying to catch and managed to bring down.”

-Elias Canetti about the genesis of laughing.

“Laughing praises the change, not that which it brings. It demonstrates that stability and balance are not norms but the exceptions that will willingly fall back into obscurity at any moment.”

-taken from 'Das Lachen im Lichte Batailles' by Rita Bischoff
