This quote suggests that some individuals fail to recognize that beauty and happiness are integral to goodness. When contemplating acts of cruelty, it is essential to consider the underlying factors that contribute to them, such as stupidity, envy, and frustration. By acknowledging these root causes, we can better comprehend how negative actions arise and work towards cultivating a world rooted in kindness and positivity.
