Jerome K. Jerome (1859-1927): On Life, Sadness, and Joy


I can see the humorous side of things and enjoy the fun when it comes; but look where I will, there seems to me always more sadness than joy in life.

  1. It seems like a cliche that clowns are sad, but sometimes cliches speak the truth! I suppose that laughing makes the sadness a bit more bearable?


    • I guess you’re right. Even tears can hide the truth as tears of joy have the same chemical composition as those of sadness. So I guess one could feel better with a smile, rather than an expression of sadness on the face. One thing is fur sure true Jerome K Jerome, knew how to write a story so funny that one would shed tears while not being able to stop laughing (Three men in a boat). Thanks for commenting!
