...of laughter

'Watch out! The night, eh...'
He didn't hear his companion's advice. His hands in his pockets, his head thrown back, he thought of the clouds and the mountains, the rivers and the seas, and he broke into a silent laugh. A faint laugh which ran through him, like a breeze through a tree, and which thrilled him to the core. A faint laugh, but so much stronger than those clouds and mountains, those seas and rivers.

[Night Flight, Saint-Exupery, A. d.]
