Long and sad faces of Russians

I have bought and am currently reading a book in English about Russia and Russians. If it will remain as nice as in the beginning I will surely recommend it here later but now I wanna mention an interesting answer I found there.

The question is, why Russians always walk down the street or ride the public transport with such a serious and sad face. Nor Americans nor Europeans can understand that.

The answer or at least the attempt to find it is in the common Russian saying. Here you are.

"The laughter without reason is the sign of stupidity".
Hush! We try to seem clever ;)
