Life is a comedy to those who think, a tragedy to those who feel.” ― Jean Racine?
What is the mean of this quote?

It means people that use logic to address the things of life realize that most things aren't worth taking too seriously, while those that react out of emotion are negatively affected by those very same things.

If a person is thoughtful about life, he can see the absurdity in much of life's circumstances. If a person is sensitive, he will often get his feelings hurt or feel sorrowful. An example may be if a boy asks a girl out and she declines. A thoughtful man may think she had a conflict in her schedule and that there are other girls to ask out. He moves on to the next girl. A sensitive man may feel rejected, and may feel like he is deficient in someway. His crushed feelings cause him to retreat into his room, afraid to ask another girl out because he would be hurt again.
