In a poem written by Imam Shafi', he states some very true facts about life!
Taken from a talk delivered by Shaykh Sulaiman Mulla.
"When they see me happy, it Hurts them! Today people are not sad over their issues. They are sad over the hapiness of others"
"Aaj log apne dukh se dukhi nahin hai, dusro ke sukh se dukhi hai"
(Apologies for the half hearted translation, in the lecture, the poem started in Arabic then swiftly moved to English and then went into fully Urdu. I guess it was more powerful in Urdu than in English)
