Smile, though your heart is aching -

"Valve Wheel"

I've always somehow despised the lyrics of Chaplin's Smile. I believe in tears that don't demand a smile to get through.
The time to smile is when you feel happy. Tears are also allowed.

Maybe I'm humorless.

I wouldn't say that you're humorless at all, Susu. I believe in allowing for tears ... in fact, the quote from Albert Smith agrees with what you say.

Tears are good when you're happy and also when you're not. The quote is quite good. The picture goes with it. Or the other way round.
