Eclipse

Solar eclipse

If you are really aware of things, of how tragic life is, then there is restraint in your enjoyment. Joy is another thing. One can possess a great sense of inner joy and elation, but enjoying the outer aspects of life with the awareness of so many people suffering … is something which I find difficult. Archbishop Anthony Bloom, ‘God and Man’

A somewhat unpopular sentiment. But not always inappropriate, I think.
