    “Because God is never cruel, there is a reason for all things.
    We must know the pain of loss; because if we never knew it, we would have no compassion for others,
    and we would become monsters of self-regard, creatures of unalloyed self-interest.
    The terrible pain of loss teaches humility to our prideful kind,
    has the power to soften uncaring hearts,
    to make a better person of a good one.”

    Dean Koontz, The Darkest Evening of the Year
