Quite Quotable Quotes: Rorschach

I’m starting a series of short posts from people (real or imaginary) I admire or those that interest me and have affected me in one way or another.
First off is a journal entry from Rorschach‘s journal, Watchmen issue #2 by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons:

“I heard a joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he’s depressed. Says life is harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world. Doctor says, “Treatment is simple. The great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go see him. That should pick you up.” Man bursts into tears. Says, “But doctor… I am Pagliacci.” Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. Curtains.”

This quote is also mentioned by Rorschach in the Watchmen movie.
