Human misery quotes

For at least two thirds of our miseries spring from human stupidity, human malice and those great motivators and justifiers of malice and stupidity, idealism, dogmatism and proselytizing zeal on behalf of religious or political idols.
Aldous Huxley

We are apt to measure the happiness or misery of the world by that portion of either which has fallen to our lot.
NORMAN MACDONALD, Maxims and Moral Reflection

At a certain stage of misery, you'll try anything to explain what's going on with you, even if you know it doesn't explain a thing and it's one failed explanation after another.
PHILIP ROTH, The Humbling
