Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951)

Humor is not a mood but a way of looking at the world. So if it is correct to say that humor was stamped out in Nazi Germany, that does not mean that people were not in good spirits, or anything of that sort, but something much deeper and more important.

The mood of the humour, is cheerfulness and happiness.

Common sense...

This philosopher is still out of my grasp, due to his mathematical studies; Betrand Russell, one of his main promoters, is more accesible to me.
