Gratitude is a lesson hard to learn for those who look upon the world amiss. The most that they can do is see themselves as better off than others. And they try to be content because another seems to suffer more than they. How pitiful and deprecating are such thoughts! For who has cause for thanks while others have less cause? And who could suffer less because he sees another suffer more?
What can be expected from insane premises except an insane conclusion? The way to undo an insane conclusion is to consider the sanity of the premises on which it rests.

The Fool: The most who can do? What is your argument for this? (aka your support?) Doesnt just knowing this account enable to posibility to avoid it.. "check and mate"!

ATHOS: How pitiful and deprecating are such thoughts!

ATHOS:For who has cause for thanks while others have less cause?

The Fool: Thats load question. You haven;t demonstrated anything yet.

ATHOS: And who could suffer less because he sees another suffer more?

The Fool: Just ground you definitions and you have answers. For let say suffereing is a lack or opposite of positive affect. know you see how easy and not relative we can get this party started..
"The bud disappears when the blossom breaks through, and we might say that the former is refuted by the latter; in the same way when the fruit comes, the blossom may be explained to be a false form of the plant's existence, for the fruit appears as its true nature in place of the blossom. These stages are not merely differentiated; they supplant one another as being incompatible with one another." G. W. F. HEGEL

So should gratitude play an equal role across cultures?
