Humans were shown the door from Eden a long time ago. Now, we live in imperfection and need correction. We need an adversary. We need setbacks. We need to push against something. Our muscles need to strain in opposition to some force—or else they wither. So do our characters and our minds. “Too much” is not a blessing; it is a curse. We benefit from scarcity, not from having too much.

We flourish when things are hard, not when they are easy.”
