Twists of Passion
Passion is expressive. But there is a suffering moment to it.
Passion is not what you do actively. It grabs you and hold you in its spell. It shapes the world, all-centered around the object of passion.
Stoicism and other philosophies taught that the happiest life is one that avoids passion and other extreme states of emotion. They are currently out of favor, but always worth to look at for their amazing insight into human nature.
