Pleasure And Suffering Are One

"People have got to remember that our pleasure and our suffering are all one," said the wise old sage.

"They are two sides of one coin. You can't have one without the other. Suffering defines our pleasure, and pleasure defines our suffering."

"If you fall in love, you will know great pleasure. If your lover leaves you, you will know great suffering."

"If all you had was pleasure, pleasure would be meaningless, undefined by its opposite, until in its repetition, it would become suffering."

"If you hoped to win the lottery, but then you won every lottery, the lottery would lose its pleasure and eventually in its repetition would become suffering."

"To travel life's path will bring you pleasure and suffering, and knowing this, it is with wisdom that we greet each one if we are to attain inner peace, and find fulfillment in our journey."
