Comic grace

The descent of grace, like the upwelling of passion, occurs in the lives of individuals as well as in the lives of polities, and though such occurrences are often fraught with significance, they can also be quite comical as well. There is something both marvelous and hilarious at watching the humdrum suddenly take flight.

—Lawrence Weschler, A Wanderer in the Perfect City
