It is impossible to suffer without making someone pay for it; every complaint already contains revenge.
- Friedrich Nietzsche
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.
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
The root cause of all miseries lie hidden in "Me and Mine". If it is my wealth, then
the pain of losing it, if it is my body, then the affliction of sickness... Whereas in
reality, there is nothing yours other than the feeling of your "Being".
- Deep Trivedi
The more the diamond is cut, the brighter it sparkles; and in what seems hard dealing, there God has no end in view but to perfect His people.
- Thomas Guthrie
If there is meaning in life at all, then there must be meaning in suffering.
- Viktor Frankl
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.
- Helen Keller
God is in all men, but all men are not in God; that is why we suffer.
- Ramakrishna Paramahamsa
Man suffers only because he takes seriously what the gods made for fun.
- Alan Watts
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
