      - [Absurdity : Philosophy]

There is nothing so charming as the knowledge of literature; of that branch of literature, I mean, which enables us to discover the infinity of things, the immensity of Nature, the heavens, the earth, and the seas; this is that branch which has taught us religion, moderation, magnanimity, and that has rescued the soul from obscurity; to make her see all things above and below, first and last, and between both; it is this that furnishes us wherewith to live well and happily, and guides us to pass our lives without displeasure and without offence.
      - [Knowledge]

There is sufficient reward in the mere consciousness of a good action.

      - [Intuition]

Though laughter is allowable, a horse-laugh is abominable.
