On Creativity - John Cleese

This quote was added by malevolarky
But solemnity? It serves pomposity, and the self-important always know with some level of their consciousness that their egotism is going to be punctured by humor - that's why they see it as a threat. And so they dishonestly pretend that their deficiency makes their views more substantial, when it only makes them feel bigger.
