Life is sorrowful. How do you live with that?

Life is sorrowful. How do you live with that? You realize the eternal within yourself. You disengage, and yet, reengage. You–and here’s the beautiful formula–‘participate with joy in the sorrows of the world.’ You play the game. It hurts, but you know that you have found the place that is transcendent of injury and fulfillments. You are there, and that’s it.

-- Joseph Campbell
