“When danger or pain press too nearly, they are incapable of giving any delight, and are simply terrible; but at certain distances, and with certain modifications, they may be, and they are delightful, as we every day experience. The cause of this i shall endeavour to investigate hereafter.”

Edmund Burke (1757).
