the horrible and the miserable

Woody Allen said in Annie Hall,

I feel that life is divided into the horrible and the miserable. That’s the two categories. The horrible are like, I don’t know, terminal cases, you know, and blind people, crippled. I don’t know how they get through life. It’s amazing to me. And the miserable is everyone else. So you should be thankful that you’re miserable, because that’s very lucky, to be miserable.

As I said, I think of him often because I feel miserable…I decide not to make it horrible though.


One thought on “the horrible and the miserable

  1. As I study sociology this semester, I start wondering how many stimuli and agents on earth we made for ourselves, just for going through life. Reading your notes reminds me of this raw truth again.
