Puck

'Lord, what fools these mortals be'

This quote from Shakespeare's 'A midsummer Night's Dream' is spoken by Puck, a mischievous sprite, who, like a jester, plays tricks on people and then watches the foolish antics of the victims.  In some instances, of course, he is the fool himself because he plays his tricks on the wrong people and caused chaos by making the fairy queen fall in love with an ass.

Here, he looks down with amusement at the parade of folly in 'The Paradise of Fools'
