Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.
Suffering has been stronger than all other teaching, and has taught me to understand what your heart used to be. I have been bent and broken, but - I hope - into a better shape.
- Charles Dickens
...when I think of you it's with tears, because no one else has such delicate hands that can reach into my soul and calm my fears...
- John Geddes
The end is the beginning of all things, suppressed and hidden, awaiting to be released through the rhythm of pain and pleasure… Pain itself destroys pain. Suffering itself frees man from suffering.
- J. Krishnamurti
It is the law of nature that when adversity strikes, nature invariably provides us with the strength to endure that pain. Look for yourself, we are not that disheartened with the pains of present...but are worried sick about the pains to come in future.
- Deep Trivedi
Nothing is more seductive for man than his freedom of conscience. But nothing is a greater cause of suffering.
- Fyodor M. Dostoevsky
I believe there are more urgent and honorable occupations than the incomparable waste of time we call suffering.
God had one son on earth without sin, but never one without suffering.
- Saint Augustine of Hippo
It is impossible to suffer without making someone pay for it; every complaint already contains revenge.
- Friedrich Nietzsche
If we stop considering ourselves special on the level of physicalities, half our sorrows will disappear by themselves. From sickness to death, events to accidents; what happens to others, can always happen to us and our beloved ones too... Then what's the point in grieving about them for so long?
- Deep Trivedi
