Pity always brought me back to earth. Echoes of cries of pain reverbrate in my heart. Children in famine, victims tortured by oppressors, helpless old people a hated burden to their sons, and the whole world of loneliness, poverty and pain make a mockery of what human life should be.

I long to alleviate the evil, but I cannot, and I too suffer...

--- Bertrand Russell
