Joy and Sorrow

"…for the Christian, joy is the central feature of life, and sorrow is peripheral because the fundamental questions of life are answered and the perifpheral ones are relatively unanswered.  For the antithesist, sorrow is central and joy peripheral because only the peripheral questions are answered and the central ones remain unanswered." – Ravi Zacharias, referring to a presentation by English philosopher G.K. Chesterton
