"...and nobody laughs!" (Kierkegaard)

""In the magnificent cathedral, 
 the Honorable and Right Reverend, 
the elect favorite of the fashionable world, 
appears before an elect company
 and preaches with emotion upon the text he himself choose: 

'God hath chosen the base things of the world, and the things that are despised.' 

And nobody laughs."
-Kierkegaard, "Attack Upon Christendom"
