God creates us free, free to be selfish, but He adds a mechanism that will penetrate our selfishness and wake us up to the presence of others in this world, and that mechanism is called suffering.
- William Nicholson
The word ‘happiness’ would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.
- Carl Gustav Jung
Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worse kind of suffering.
- Paulo Coelho
It requires more courage to suffer than to die.
- Napoleon Bonaparte
It is impossible to suffer without making someone pay for it; every complaint already contains revenge.
- Friedrich Nietzsche
The reward of suffering is experience.
- Harry S. Truman
Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dream.
- Paulo Coelho
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
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
It's easy to look at people and make quick judgements about them, their present and their pasts, but you'd be amazed at the pain and tears a single smile hides. What a person shows to the world is only one tiny facet of the iceburg hidden from sight. And more often then not, it's lined with cracks and scars that go all the way to the foundation of their soul.
- Sherrilyn Kenyon
