My dear,

Laughter, and a lot of it, is the right response to the things which drive us to tears!

For anything else but gives strength to them.

But if we laugh, and laugh a lot, how can that which pains us so stay? How does it hurt us if we care not?

… We must laugh, for every other response drives us deeper into the clenches of that which brought us here in the first place.

Falsely yours,
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
