Man suffers only because he takes seriously what the gods made for fun.
- Alan Watts
The word ‘happiness’ would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.
- Carl Gustav Jung
The root of all our miseries is not being mentally prepared for a situation. I cannot
understand, why don't you accept that what happens to others, can always
happen to you as well!
- Deep Trivedi
To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering.
- Friedrich Nietzsche
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
Behold the man who shields his family from all suffering. Has not his body become a willing vessel for affliction? Without good men to hold it up, the family house will fall when misfortune descends.
All sacrifice and suffering is redemptive. It is used to either teach the individual or to help others. Nothing is by chance.
- Arthur J. Russell
Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worse kind of suffering.
- Paulo Coelho
True realisation of the actual nature of this material world, its perishable, transitory and illusory aspects best dawns on a person in suffering.
- A Spiritual Leader
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
