The trouble is that we have a bad habit, encouraged by pedants and sophisticates, of considering happiness as something rather stupid. Only pain is intellectual, only evil interesting. This is the treason of the artist; a refusal to admit the banality of evil and the terrible boredom of pain.Ursula K. Leguin
Evil. Anyone can be evil. And pain? Pain is all around us. It takes work to feel joyful, dedication to be happy.
