Apt musings from The Mysterious Benedict Society:
“It’s true,” Sticky said. “Everything has been bittersweet.”
“Maybe we should acquire a taste for bittersweet,” said Reynie with a grin. “Then everything would feel wonderful.”
“That’s stupid,” Constance snipped. “If it felt wonderful then it wouldn’t be bittersweet, would it?”
Reynie only shrugged. He wasn’t at all sure about that.
