“The human mind seems to work exactly this way:
Whenever one sees a person at a seemingly better position than himself, he does not think, ‘Ah, I too must go there.’
Instead, he contemplates, ‘Come down to this abyss. Come down and join me.’
Sorry, but I won’t go to the abyss you dwell in.
Lowering myself to live in a hell of jealousy and hatred—I won’t do that.
So stop gesturing for me to go down.”
– Cheon Song-yi in My Love from the Star
