“Too much thinking is a terrible disease. It brings on awfully chronic symptoms such as seriousness. I don’t mind arrogance and self-indulgence, as I’m arrogant and self-indulgent sometimes, and I don’t mind stupidity, as I’ve done loads of stupid things in this life, but seriousness bothers me. I flee from serious people as fast as my chubby little legs will carry me. I find seriousness close to revolting.
This life isn’t serious. It’s a comedy. It’s an awesomely beautiful journey, but it certainly isn’t serious. You can always tell serious people a mile off—they walk funny. The cheeks of their bum are puckered like they’re holding on to a carrot. I think they feel selected by God to hold a carrot up their rear until death.
If you’re too serious, start to laugh a lot; play, hang out with children, put on silly clothes, do light-hearted things and cut people a lot of slack, including yourself. Become big in your feelings, and seriousness melts in the light of your heart’s new found goodness.”
Stuart Wilde, in “Infinite Self”
