    "... acknowledged by the ancient maxim mathein pathein , which can be rendered either as 'to learn is to suffer' or 'to suffer is to learn.' So daunting is the suffering attached to serious learning that many people choose not to pursue it beyond what is strictly necessary for citizenship. Yet ignorance can also bring on suffering of a different kind, as a lack of learning disables a person from full participation in society. The pain of learning to read is real but positive; the pain of illiteracy is real and completely negative. Suffering in the first instance is temporary, but in the second instance it is lifelong. Mental growth also frequently involves pain, a form of suffering. The disequilibrium in this case is caused by the effort to assimilate new ideas, or even more, new paradigms of thought. Breaking out of former frameworks and stretching to grow into new insights involves a kind of mental pain that is acknowledged"
