What is the capital of Tunisia?

Is it pleonastic to say “Il ne suffit que de …” instead of “Il suffit de …”?

Il ne suffit que de peu…

might be heard and indeed serves as a pleonastic intensifier.

The sentence style is getting a little heavy in the process though, as compared to that of the simpler form.

Peu might be considered slightly formal so one might have heard instead:

Il suffit de peu de chose pour rendre un animal dépressif.

Il suffit de pas grand chose pour…

Il suffit d’un rien pour…

Un rien suffit à rendre un animal dépressif
