Charles Baudelaire and hospitals


Came across a lovely comment by Charles Baudelaire, sort of variation on ‘The grass is greener…’

“This life is a hospital where every patient is possessed with the desire to change beds” – seems to capture the constant worry that we could be doing better, or worse, that others are better placed than us. Probably useful to place it alongside the observation that nobody understands another person’s problems.
