"No burden is so heavy for a man to bear as a succession of happy days"

- Max Planck

About this Quote

In this quote, Max Planck is revealing the concept that having a constant string of pleased days can actually be a burden for a guy. In the beginning look, one may think that having a succession of pleased days would be a dream become a reality. However, Planck suggests that this can actually be overwhelming and hard to deal with. This might be due to the fact that constantly experiencing happiness can produce a sense of pressure to preserve that level of happiness, causing stress and fatigue. In addition, having a succession of happy days may also make it harder to appreciate and completely appreciate each private happy moment. Overall, Planck's quote reminds us that balance and variety in life are necessary, and that even too much of a good thing can end up being a burden.
