"THE MEANING OF PAIN" / Quotations

Prefiguring this concept is the idea that the only meaning anyone could derive from pain is pleasure. So, these are quotations meant to inspire pleasure, which began with difficult, 'painful' concepts, including the concept of pain itself.

"The world is full of the highest honors. Most of these honors are a sham, because the only reason they were made was to serve some obscure petty interest. Nonetheless, the honors exist, spiritually and immaterially, but they exist." ---Nathan Coppedge, Aphorisms (unpublished work)

"There are some beliefs that sometimes no one believes." ---Nathan Coppedge, Aphorisms (unpublished work).

"If paradoxes are the greatest problem, then even practicality is visionary." ---Nathan Coppedge, Aphorisms (unpublished work)

"The soul, whatever we know to the contrary, is the ultimate critique of the universal."---Nathan Coppedge, The Dimensional Universalist's Toolkit (unpublished work).

"[P]ain...This principle is represented by Pragmatism." ---Nathan Coppedge, Dimensional Ethics (paper)

"Cleverness is a moral more base than pain. It is a way of escaping morality as it is commonly understood, in favor of the most difficult principles, principles which only come at a price." ---Nathan Coppedge, Dimensional Ethics (paper)

"It may be that the only step available besides soft justice is moral evolution, a process which some say has not yet occurred." ---Nathan Coppedge, Interactions Between Psychology and the Justice System (paper)
