To truly live, you have to think and feel

“Life is a comedy for those who think and a tragedy for those who feel.” Horace Walpole

In order to truly enjoy life, you have to think. If you can think, then you can laugh. Without laughter your life becomes a miserable existence.

In order for you to love and to be loved, you have to feel, but be careful. Once you begin to feel, one of the feelings you’ll become acquainted with is heartbreak. Being able to feel means loving, and sometimes loving those who don’t or can’t love you back. That is the tragedy of life.

That is why you also need to be able to think. Use your thinking abilities to laugh at these tragedies, to know there will be other opportunities to love, and to know that one day, you will find the right person who you will truly love, and who will truly love you back.

Make sure the person you find can think, as well as feel. If they can’t think, they can’t laugh with you. If you can’t laugh together, then that really will be a tragedy.
