Motto for the Day: Nietzsche

I know it's desperately unfashionable (is it? right now? who knows?) to admit enjoying reading Nietzsche, but on the mention of it from a student of mine in the context of inspiring some of our more dour fellow human beings to lighten up a little, I offer this little pearl:
And we should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once. And we should call every truth false which was not accompanied by at least one laugh.
I must check the source of this quote, otherwise I will feel myself to be a VBB (very bad blogger).

Or alternatively, I may be thought of as an accolyte of Marx with his citation of Hegel (just a little bit of history repeating).
