The Awful Truth
- (Jennifer Lee)
I grew up very religious (I am agnostic now) and the story that stuck to me to this day is, the one where Eve, disobeyed god by eating from the Tree of The Knowledge of Good and Evil. I don't think what she had done was necessarily a sin, rather, an awakening of sorts. We all enter our lives as pure and spotless as she was, equipped with an innate sense of curiosity and the capacity to learn great things. Tragically, the more we come to learn, the more terrible everything surrounding us becomes. We learn that love is almost always conditional, that we are creatures of terrible habits, and nothing is ever as it seems. All the errors we commit over the course of a lifetime, we lament with the words "If only I knew then, what I know now. "
