"Do you know why a vague sadness sometimes weighs upon your hearts and makes you find life so bitter?
It is your spirit, which aspires to happiness and freedom, and which, bound to the body that serves as its prison, exhausts itself in vain efforts to escape. However, seeing that such efforts are useless, it falls into despondency, and the body, bearing the spirit’s influence, sluggishness, dejection and a kind of apathy, seizes you and you find yourself unhappy. (...)
If during the course of this trial, and while performing your task, you see worries, troubles and vexations fall upon you, be strong and courageous in order to bear them."
“The Gospel According to Spiritism" by Allan Kardec
