“Man is the only animal that laughs and weeps for he is the only animal that is struck with the difference between what things are and what they ought to be” is a quote from William Hazlitt, a British essayist. Being uncomfortable with our present situation and taking steps to make our environment suit us, is the unique characteristic of humans. Quite often, however, we don’t use it. We wallow in our disappointment and lick our wounds but do nothing to make our lives better. It’s okay to cry, if when you’re done crying, you change something to make the situation better. Its more than okay to laugh and congratulate yourself for creating the right environment. When you’re done patting yourself on the back, though, take another step and make it even better.
What did you weep or laugh for today?
