A Miserere Sung in Common

The holiest attribute of a temple is that it is a place where men weep in common. A Miserere sung in common by a multitude flailed by destiny is worth a whole philosophy. To cure the plague is not enough, it must also be lamented with bitter tears. Yes, we must learn to weep! Perhaps that is the supreme wisdom.

– Miguel de Unamuno, The Tragic Sense of Life
