Would You Pity Or Envy Me?

"If the secret sorrows of everyone could be read on their forehead, how many who now cause envy would suddenly become the objects of pity?"

Italian proverb

We envy what we know often without knowing what we don't know.


  1. I hadn't thought of them as "secret sorrows", but now that I do, I suppose so. We all have them don't we? Is there anyone left to envy?

  2. I don't know about envy although I do know we do envy others. But there are certainly plenty of people to admire and emulate. Plenty of hero material out there.
