A Curse or Blessing

“Humanity has the curse (or blessing) that all human beings are interconnected. As long as any one of them is suffering, none of them will be completely happy. Nothing in the world is unknown to us, neither its pain nor its joy, because ours is a world that still suffers even though there is bliss, which is still joyful even though there is pain. The more we know our suffering, the more we will enjoy our happiness.”

– A.G. Roemmers, “The Return of the Young Prince”
