Random quote of the day: 

“Pain is the most individualizing thing on earth. It is true that it is the great common bond as well but that realization only comes when it is over. To suffer is to be alone; to watch another suffer is to know the barrier that shuts each of us away by himself. Only individuals can suffer and only individuals have a place in tragedy.”

—Edith Hamilton, The Greek Way
