intrinsic ridicule / tolerating existence /flaubert visited

"What stops me from taking myself seriously, even though I am essentially a serious person, is that I find myself extremely ridiculous, not in the sense of the small-scale ridiculousness of slap-stick comedy, but rather in the sense of ridiculousness that seems intrinsic to human life and that manifests itself in the simplest actions and the most extraordinary gestures. "


"The one way of tolerating existence is to lose oneself in literature as in a perpetual orgy."
Gustave Flaubert
