And why are you so firmly, so triumphantly, convinced that only the normal and the positive - in other words, only what is conductive to welfare - is for the advantage of man? Is not reason in error as regards advantage? Does not man, perhaps, love something besides well- being? Perhaps he is just as fond of suffering? Perhaps suffering is just as great a benefit to him as well-being? Man is sometimes extraordinarily, passionately, in love with suffering, and that is a fact.
