“There ought to be behind the door of every happy, contented man
some one standing with a hammer continually reminding him with a
tap that there are unhappy people; that however happy he may be,
life will show him her laws sooner or later, trouble will come
for him — disease, poverty, losses, and no one will see or hear,
just as now he neither sees nor hears others.”

- Anton Chekhov, in “Gooseberries”.
