We have to endure this ever-changing, unstable, and undependable characteristic of the world just as others do, but at least we are not taken by surprise and at most we can keep a kind of peace above it all. We have to face the brutal fact that life on this earth is not intended to afford lasting satisfaction or continuous pleasure--as so many used to think before the war--but our philosophical studies have prepared us to cope with it. Thus detachment becomes a part of our daily experience.
