Life is Hard

Michel Dumontier recounted a scene he witnessed recently. (I think it was him, but no matter. I’m also probably mangling the story.) A parent was coping with a wailing, tantrumy child. The parent tried a variety of placating measures, all, predictably, which failed.

Finally, the parent grabbed the child and said, “Life is hard.”

It is indeed.

Unfortunately, recognition of that fact doesn’t really help.
