Feeling you need to have winter to make spring better is very, well almost religious.
I used to have this smart young engineer working for me. When he bought himself a candy bar he would not eat it until he had gone home and washed the windows
or cleaned the bathroom or whatever. To appreciate the good, or maybe to be deserving of the good, he had to do a little penance.
Of course, there's meant to be some humor in this...
