"Now step aside, look upon life as a disinterested spectator: many a drama will turn into a comedy. It is enough for us to stop our ears to the sound of music in a room, where dancing is going on, for the dancers at once to appear ridiculous. How many human actions would stand a similar test?"~ Henri Bergson
"In ancient drama, the one who pays is always the one who is right – Prometheus, Oedipus, Orestes, etc. But that’s not important. Anyway they all end in Hades, right or wrong. There is neither reward nor punishment. This explains, to our eyes clouded over by centuries of Christian perversion, the gratuitous nature of those dramas – and the pathos of such plays"
— Albert Camus - Notebooks 1942-1951
