Excerpt

;O rir, porem, do animal philosopho não é a casquinada saloia do bipede implume de Platão que vaga á toa e á tuna, sem casta de philosophia nenhuma.

«Ha ahi um gargalhar que a sciencia denomina spasmo cynico, ou de cão, um exhibir das arcadas dentarias até aos condylos. É o caracter bestial da canalha. É o que os inglezes chamão rir de cavallo--horse laugh.

«Ha tambem o rir chamado sardonico, o rir d'uns que comeram o fabuloso rainunculo da Sardenha. Ora entre nós os que d'esta arte destampam gargalhadas não comeram rainunculos, é gente imbuchada de feijão branco e orelha de cevado. Essa hedionda deformidade caracterisa estupidez quasi sempre malevola; corresponde ao espojar-se, se o rir é meramente bruto e ao escoucear, quando é bruto e mau.

«Não riram assim Democrito, Aristophanes, Esopo, Petronio, Aretino, Gil Vicente, Erasm
