Previous Section   62. FELLOWSHIP IN JOY   Next Section

Fellowship in Joy.  The snake that stings us means to hurt us and rejoices in so doing: the lowest animal can picture to itself the pain of others.  But to picture to oneself the joy of others and to rejoice thereat is the highest privilege of the highest animals, and again, amongst them, is the property only of the most select specimens — accordingly a rare "human thing”.  Hence there have been philosophers who denied fellowship in joy.
