Pity

X tells me he pities human beings, he feels great pity in his heart for them! Children make him cry with their innocence of what awaits them. Teenagers make him sad with their confusion and affectations. And he pities the adults too, he says, he feels great pity for their stupidity and their painful lives, their arrogance and their terrible responsibilities. How do they do it, he says, how does anyone do it? He feels a great holy pity emanating from his person, flowing from his heart out to the whole world!
