In the words of Will Durst, who has made a remark using contempt, “Comedy is defiance. It is a sort of contempt in the face of fear and anxiety; and it’s the laughter that allows hope to creep back on the inhale.” Contempt if allowed to grow can turn into a very deadly and fatal feeling. Such a feeling of contempt can arouse extremely ill feelings of enmity and quarrel. To save yourself from suffering contempt from others, do well and act with grace. Be a noble person with noble intentions.
