There is a secret wisdom-of-the-ages
that holds the key to breaking our
cycle of self-imposed suffering.

life was "supposed" to be "fair,"
and all the trouble started -
expectation, disappointment, resentment, anger -
a whole cycle of suffering that began
with the belief that life is "supposed" to be "fair."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
