Act! While in delirium I no longer know what I say or what I do! And yet, it’s necessary. Make an effort! Bah! Are you not a man? You are a clown. Put on your costume and powder your face. The people paid, and they expect to laugh. And even if Harlequin shall steal your Columbina Laugh, clown! So the crowd will cheer. Turn your distress and tears in to jest your pain and sobbing into a funny face. Laugh, clown laugh at your broken love. Laugh at the grief that poisons your heart!
