Bitter Work

“A mugger’s blow may restore an amnesiac’s memory, a lover’s betrayal turn a person toward a saintly life of good works. The consequences do not alter the nature of the actions themselves.”
-Paul W. Schroeder, The Transformation of European Politics 1763-1848

Euphrosynē (n., Greek) - "mirth, merriment"
