Speak not harshly to anyone. Those thus addressed will retort. Painful, indeed, is vindictive speech. Blows in exchange may bruise you.
The aim of the wise is not to secure pleasure, but to avoid pain.

Pain and beauty, our constant bedfellows.
- Nick Bantock
Isn't it funny that we never look into the lives of the great people whom we
worship, to dispel the miseries from our life and see, how much pain they have
endured in their life. The truth is, we fail to understand one simple and basic
fact that as long as there is life, there will be pain; no matter however great the
person may be... Their greatness is not in having a life without hardship but
because of their ability to remain cheerful even when surrounded by miseries.
