Probably I’m not the first who thinks or says that. I was just thinking if I liked happiness enough to keep myself happy for a long time and I’m not sure. People don’t learn from happiness.They don’t like to suffer either of course. They only like the moments when the suffering stops. When they are painless for quite a while they start to worry about things which make them unhappy again. People need pain as well as happiness. They need both to make the circle complete.
And we need special people to suffer a lot because that’s what makes them create brilliant songs, films, books, pictures etc.
