"If life's not beautiful without the pain, well I'd just rather never ever even see beauty again."
--Modest Mouse The View

well, as far as child birth goes, i'd gladly go through the pain again... even 10 times the pain i had would be completely worth it. i actually look forward to that pain again in a weird deep grown-up kind of way. seriously

He says that without any conception of what life without beauty would exist without ever being able to enjoy a sunset, a face, a perfect spring day...that would be ultimately tragic. Pain isn't fun, but it is vital. Physical pain lets us know something is wrong. Mental pain bears fruit by forcing a resolution of issues. Emotional pain leads to personal development. Pain is a motivation to change. I agree with Andie, the end results are worth any temporary anguish.
