A little girl can be sweeter and badder oftener than anyone else in the world.

A girl is Innocence playing in the mud, Beauty standing on its head, and Motherhood dragging a doll by the foot.
There is nothing funny about Halloween. This sarcastic festival reflects, rather, an infernal demand for revenge by children on the adult world.
It is not funny that anything else should fall down only that a man should fall down. Why do we laugh Because it is a gravely religious matter it is the Fall of Man. Only man can be absurd for only man can be dignified.

It is funny about life: if you refuse to accept anything but the very best you will very often get it.
