“One cannot know beauty without pain. For without pain, there is no inspiration.” – Yash
With logical opposites, a statement like the above is usually untrue. One can almost certainly know happiness without tasting suffering and vice versa. It is also likely that one can know ‘good’ without experiencing ‘bad.’ But, this is different. ‘Pain’ and ‘beauty’ do not strike me as contraries. I get the feeling that I agree with the relationship expressed between them above. Though, I’m not yet sure why.
