Ungratefulness

9 febbraio 2016

We may be ungrateful, but not as a suicide giving up inalienable goods. The more one gives us, the more we don’t forgive the donor. We don’t greet him anymore, or even soil him. It’s like charity: he who receives it does not forgive who has made him feel inferior. There is a paradox: I should be grateful to the benevolent person; yet, as soon as he turns his back on me, I’m ready to insult him. The more we wonder, the less we can understand the motives of ungrateful people.
