the feelings that hurt most, the emotions that sting most, are those that are absurd,...

...the longing for impossible things, precisely because they are impossible;
nostalgia for what never was; the desire for what could have been;
regret over not being someone else;
dissatisfaction with the world’s existence.
All these half-tones of the soul’s consciousness create in us a painful landscape,
an eternal sunset of what we are.
(Fernando Pessoa)
