„Can one be fully human without experiencing tragedy? The only tragedy there is in the world is ignorance; all evil comes from that.“

—  Anthony de Mello, Context: Can one be fully human without experiencing tragedy? The only tragedy there is in the world is ignorance; all evil comes from that. The only tragedy there is in the world is unwakefulness and unawareness. From them comes fear, and from fear comes comes everything else, but death is not a tragedy at all. Dying is wonderful; it's only horrible to people who have never understood life. It's only when you're afraid of life that you fear death. It's only dead people who fear death. "The Death of Me", p. 150
