The Ones who Walk Away from Omelas - Ursula K. LeGuin

This quote was added by louistern34
The trouble is that we have a bad habit, encouraged by pedants and sophisticates, for considering happiness as something rather stupid. Only pain is intellectual, only evil interesting. This is the treason of the artist; a refusal to admit the banality of evil and the terrible boredom of pain.
