".. it should be noted that emotional distress and unhappiness have their origin in excessive love toward a thing subject to considerable instability, a thing which we can never completely possess. For nobody is disturbed or anxious about any thing unless he loves it, nor do wrongs, suspicions, enmities, etc. arise except from love toward things which nobody can truly possess."
- Baruch Spinoza, Ethics, Book V Proposition 20, Scholium (via tiredshoes)
