Yes, I do agree with the statement that “without contraries is no progression. Attraction and Repulsion, Reason and Energy, Love and Hate are necessary to Human existence.” I deeply believe that without the bitter, you will never appreciate the sweetness. The same is true in all aspects of life. Take another contrary, Working Hard and Spoiled Rotten. There is the parable of the child who was given everything and the child who had to work hard for everything he was given. In the end, the happier child was the one who had to work hard for everything they were given. They appreciated everything they worked so hard for. To the contrary, the child who was given everything always longed for more and never appreciated or valued his possessions, as they weren’t achieved but instead handed to him. He was left feeling empty and unfulfilled, while the other child was left feeling satisfied and accomplished. This parable holds a very powerful and valuable life lesson and one that Blake most likely was trying to convey in his comparison of contraries.
