Sympathy Vampires

There is a certain kind of person that feeds on your pity. They never stop.

“If there was less sympathy in the world, there would be less trouble in the world. It is much more easy to have sympathy with suffering than it is to have sympathy with thought. There is something very morbid about modern sympathy with pain.” — Oscar Wilde
