#1 - Misery
I'd like to think that misery is something we could live without, but, frankly, too much of our world strives on it. Without conflict, we wouldn't have "heroes." Some people dedicate their entire life to a specific cause, whose life, otherwise, would have little meaning.__________________
Is life more about the struggle for goodness or the actual attainment of the goal? Is misery, thus, "good" in itself?
"He had lived through an age when men and women with energy and ruthlessness but without much ability or persistence excelled. And even though most of them had gone under, their ignorance had confused Roy, making him wonder whether the things he had striven to learn, and thought of as 'culture,' were irrelevant. Everything was supposed to be the same: commercials, Beethoven's late quartets, pop records, shopfronts, Freud, multi-coloured hair. Greatness, comparison, value, depth: gone, gone, gone. Anything could give some pleasure; he saw that. But not everything provided the sustenance of a deeper understanding." - Hanif Kureishi, Love in a Blue Time
