    This is a quote from song "Just the two of us" by Grover Washington Jr.

    [...]No time for tears
    Wasted water's all that is
    And it don't make no flowers grow[...]

    To me it just shows how useless stress, tears, sadness is. It's not doing nothing good to us. Same with anger and other negative emotions. No progress, not making us better.

    Long but very relevant here, BTW this is the book the movie Arrival (2016) is based on:

    “Think of cocaine. In its natural form, as coca leaves, it's appealing, but not to an extent that it usually becomes a problem. But refine it, purify it, and you get a compound that hits your pleasure receptors with an unnatural intensity. That's when it becomes addictive.

    Beauty has undergone a similar process, thanks to advertisers. Evolution gave us a circuit that responds to good looks - call it the pleasure receptor for our visual cortex - and in our natural environment, it was useful to have. But take a person with one-in-a-million skin and bone structure, add professional makeup and retouching, and you're no longer looking at beauty in its natural form. You've got pharmaceutical-grade beauty, the cocaine of good looks.

    Biologists call this "supernormal stimulus" [...] Our beauty receptors receive more stimulation than they were evolved to handle; we're seeing more beauty in one day than our ancestors did in a lifetime. And the result is that beauty is slowly ruining our lives.

    How? The way any drug becomes a problem: by interfering with our relationships with other people. We become dissatisfied with the way ordinary people look because they can't compare to supermodels.”
    ― Ted Chiang, Stories of Your Life and Others
