God Laughs with Man

Light of truth

The comedy of God’s saving the most unlikely people when they least expect it, the joke in which God laughs with man and man with God […] this is what King Lear glimpses at the end of his tragic life when the world has done its worst, he says to the daughter he loves, Come, let’s away to prison,
We two alone…
So we’ll live
And pray, and sing, and tell old tales and laugh…”

King Lear Act V,
Scene III, lines 8-12
