See that there is more

The problem, as I see it, is that we keep trying the same things over and over again. We assume that these are what the rest want. And if they don’t come, it’s not because they don’t like it, but because they are unwilling to give up their time. So we try to modify them, in an attempt to make them more enticing. Still no one, and we’re disappointed; we can’t figure out why it is that even after we had made such an effort, still so few turn up. And if someone suggested to try something different, we protest immediately in indignation: these things lie at the heart of our identity; how could one so easily discard them for something else? – if the rest do not like them, then they are leading the wrong sort of lives. My friends, who is to say what is wrong and what is right? Who is to say that these things are most commendable, and other things deleterious? If your King is indeed infinite in his kindness, then I see no reason for his purview to be so limited to a single sphere.
