Well, everyone knows life is hard. And it's not just hard; it can be unbearably hard. And it's worse than hard because, sometimes, the hardship is inflicted upon you by yourself, or by someone close to you, or sometimes by an enemy, or sometimes by a friend—you get betrayed. And it's not just that it's hard, you're also subject to evil, you're subject to malevolence, and that makes it even worse—and everyone knows this. You need something to set against that. You need a noble way of being to set against that.
