Everything to lose

A poor person may suffer for the want of wealth. Yet, a rich person suffers more when they turn poor.

An oppressed person may suffer for the want of power. Yet, a powerful person suffers more when they are deprived of power.

An unsuccessful person may suffer because of wasted potential. Yet, a successful person suffers more when faced with failure.

A person in pain may suffer. Yet, an indulgent person suffers more when pain takes the place of their pleasure.

The larger the object of your fulfillment, the larger is the shadow it casts.
