To suffer morally and then to learn afterwards that this kind of suffering was founded upon an error shocks us.  For there is a unique consolation in acknowledging by our suffering a "profounder world of truth" than any other world and we would much rather suffer and feel ourselves above reality by doing so (through the feeling that in this way we approach nearer to that "profounder world of truth ") than live without suffering and hence without this feeling that one is exalted.  Thus it is pride and the habitual fashion of satisfying it which opposes this new interpretation of morality.  What power then must we employ if this brake is to be removed?  Greater pride?  A new pride?
