From John Shirley, On Suffering
From John Shirley's blog entry called "Splinters from going against the grain: a certain mystery":
"It's the vastness of our capacity for suffering that I think is one of the great mysteries of human existence. (Our capacity for joy is, it seems to me, more limited than our capacity for suffering, though we can experience a great deal of joy--it's limited because if you feel too much, the brain has to compensate, and people tend to feel a corresponding 'down' afterwards, to some extent.)"
