Quote of the Day (Larry David, on Why ‘Solemnity is Funny’)

“Solemnity is funny. It changes people’s behavior. You’re forced to talk a certain way, act a certain way. You’re not yourself. You can’t walk into a room where’s someone’s relative died and go [loud, gregarious voice] ‘Hey, how’s it going?’ You have to go [serious, low voice], ‘How’s it going?’ You have to act.”—Larry David quoted in Jason Zinoman, “Larry David Stays in Character,” The New York Times, February 22, 2015
