“O ye gods, ye gods!  Must I endure all this?” – Julius Caesar

I have always hated – and I mean hated – the saying that “whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”  And now, apparently, I’ve been vindicated by recent research.  A new study, tracking a group of people over a decade, finds that heartache and stress just wears a person down; it doesn’t bolster them up.  What Neitzsche was thinking I have no idea.  Hadn’t he ever been deeply burned or cut?  It leaves a thin delicate scar, vulnerable and pink.  Heartache is heartache pure and simple, there is nothing good about it.
