"There is, as will appear later, an element of undergoing, 

of suffering, in its large sense, in every experience. 

Otherwise there could be no taking in of what preceded. 

For "taking in" in any vital experience, 

is something more than placing something 

on top of consciousness over what was previously known. 

It involves reconstruction which may be painful." 

John Dewey
