The Perverted World of Tears.  The manifold discomforts which the demands of higher culture cause to man finally pervert his nature to such an extent that he usually keeps himself stoical and unbending.  Thus he has tears in reserve only for rare occasions of happiness, so that many must weep even at the enjoyment of painlessness — only when happy does his heart still beat.
