“Taken to its logical conclusion, every story is sad, because at the end everyone dies. Birth, copulation, and death. No exceptions.

… The picture is of happiness, the story not. Happiness is a garden walled with galss: there’s no way in or out. In Paradise there are no stories, because there are no journeys. It’s loss and regret and misery and yearning that drive the story forward, along its twisted road.”

– Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin
