There’s method in the madness

It struck me this morning that whoever designed this crazy world we live in was very wise indeed.

If labour weren’t so painful; if those early months weren’t so emotionally and physically exhausting; if the years after were full of just pure joy..well, there’d be no stopping us would there? We’d procreate til our bits fell off. And subsequently the world would’ve run out of fuel and space and ground to a halt a long time ago.
