About suffering they were never wrong, The Old Masters: how well they understood Its human position; how it takes place While someone else is eating or opening a window or just walking dully along
W. H. Auden
And now I depart hence condemned by you to suffer the penalty of death, and they, too, go their ways condemned by the truth to suffer the penalty of villainy and wrong; and I must abide by my award - let them abide by theirs.
Plato
Anything, anything would be better than this agony of mind, this creeping pain that gnaws and fumbles and caresses one and never hurts quite enough
Jean-Paul Sartre
Every individual acts and suffers in accordance with his peculiar teleology, which has all the inevitability of fate, so long as he does not understand it.
Alfred Adler
He jests at scars that never felt a wound
William Shakespeare
I can sympathize with everything, except suffering.
Oscar Wilde
If you suffer, thank God! -- it is a sure sign that you are alive.
Elbert Hubbard
Know how sublime a thing it is To suffer and be strong
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
Thomas Jefferson
Now it seems to me that love of some kind is the only possible explanation of the extraordinary amount of suffering that there is in the world.
Oscar Wilde
One of life's best coping mechanisms is to know the difference between an inconvenience and a problem. If you break your neck, if you have nothing to eat, if your house is on fire, then you've got a problem. Everything else is an inconvenience. Life is inconvenient. Life is lumpy. A lump in the oatmeal, a lump in the throat and a lump in the breast are not the same kind of lump. One needs to learn the difference.
Robert Fulghum
Suffering becomes beautiful when anyone bears great calamities with cheerfulness, not through insensibility but through greatness of mind.
Aristotle
Suffering is but another name for the teaching of experience, which is the parent of instruction and the schoolmaster of life.
Horace
Suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope (Romans 5:3-4).
Bible
The heart was made to be broken
Oscar Wilde
The only tyrannies from which men, women and children are suffering in real life are the tyrannies of minorities
Theodore Roosevelt
The person who grieves suffers his passion to grow upon him; he indulges it, he loves it; but this never happens in the case of actual pain, which no man ever willingly endured for any considerable time.
Edmund Burke
The superior man is distressed by the limitations of his ability; he is not distressed by the fact that men do not recognize the ability that he has.
Confucius
There would be far less suffering in the world if human beings-God knows why they are made like this-did not use their imaginations so busily in recalling the memories of past misfortunes, instead of trying to bear an indifferent present.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Those whose suffering is due to love are, as we say of certain invalids, their own physicians
Marcel Proust
