“Never sad,” Bert interrupted.
“Well, yes. What’s wrong with that?”
“I suppose you also want up without down, soft without hard, cold without hot, and good without bad? Don’t you see Buzz? Everything is relative, the instant you define one condition, you’ve created its opposite. How can you have cold unless you know what hot is? How can you have up without down?
How can you bee happy without knowing what sad is?”
