Repeat yourself and you're begging for assent. Chausson said he felt like a child every time he sat down to write. His music sounds like he is imitating his father's seriousness. Yet as true as it is that a consistently present sense of humor generally reveals a character fairly committed to recognizing reality for what it is, the ability to reflect seriously on the actuality of one's situation without relying too heavily on irony can assist the associative process- i.e., the "chain of signifiers," ie:: "phrases of the mind unite, you have nothing to lose but your chains of association."
