Suffering quotes

Affliction is a treasure, and scarce any man hath enough of it.

- Donne, John

Never to suffer would never to have been blessed.

- Edgar Allan Poe

I felt despair. Though it seems to me now there's two kinds of it: the sort that causes a person to surrender and then the sort I had which made me take risks and make plans.

- Erica Eisdorfer

I have found that it don't really matter if you're brought up fine or rough, but that it helps to have someone to spill your sorrows to.

- Erica Eisdorfer

The salvation of the world is in man's suffering.

- Faulkner, William

One writes of scars healed, a loose parallel to the pathology of the skin, but there is no such thing in the life of an individual. There are open wounds, shrunk sometimes to the size of a pin-prick but wounds still. The marks of suffering are more comparable to the loss of a finger, or the sight of an eye. We may not miss them, either, for one minute in a year, but if we should there is nothing to be done about it.

- Fitzgerald, F. Scott

To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering.

- Flack, Roberta

We are threatened with suffering from three directions: from our own body, which is doomed to decay and dissolution and which cannot even do without pain and anxiety as warning signals; from the external world, which may rage against us with overwhelming and merciless forces of destruction; and finally from our relations to other men. The suffering which comes from this last source is perhaps more painful than any other.

- Freud, Sigmund

But a somewhat more liberal and sympathetic examination of mankind will convince us that the cross is even older than the gibbet, that voluntary suffering was before and independent of compulsory; and in short that in most important matters a man has always been free to ruin himself if he chose.

- G. K. Chesterton

Great artists suffer for the people.

- Gaye, Marvin

A man will renounce any pleasures you like but he will not give up his suffering.

- Gurdjieff, George

Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it.

- Helen Keller

You desire to know the art of living, my friend? It is contained in one phrase: make use of suffering.

- Henri-FrÚdÚric Amiel

The worst part a man can suffer is to have insight into much and power over nothing.

- Herodotus

Every age, every culture, every custom and tradition has its own character, its own weakness and its own strength, its beauties and cruelties; it accepts certain sufferings as matters of course, puts up patiently with certain evils. Human life is reduced to real suffering, to hell, only when two ages, two cultures and religions overlap.

- Hesse, Hermann

If you suffer, thank God! It is a sure sign that you are alive.

- Hubbard, Elbert

So long as little children are allowed to suffer, there is no true love in this world.

- Isodore Duncan

Man has to suffer. When he has no real afflictions, he invents some.

- Jose Marti

A misery is not to be measured from the nature of the evil, but from the temper of the sufferer.

- Joseph Addison

You can hold yourself back from the sufferings of the world, that is something you are free to do and it accords with your nature, but perhaps this very holding back is the one suffering you could avoid.

- Kafka, Franz
