Acquiring a Taste for Bittersweet

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.
