Suffering quotes

I have not yet met with a sorrow that could not be borne, nor with one who's passing did not leave me stronger.

- Kathryn L. Nelson

There is not much sense in suffering, since drugs can be given for pain, itching, and other discomforts. The belief has long died that suffering here on earth will be rewarded in heaven. Suffering has lost its meaning.

- KuBler-Ross, Elisabeth

Rather suffer than die is man's motto.

- La Fontaine, Jean De

Oh, fear not in a world like this, and thou shalt know erelong, know how sublime a thing it is to suffer and be strong.

- Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

It is a glorious thing to be indifferent to suffering, but only to one's own suffering.

- Lynd, Robert

Everything in life that we really accept undergoes a change. So suffering must become Love. That is the mystery.

- Mansfield, Katherine

It is not true that suffering ennobles the character; happiness does that sometimes, but suffering, for the most part, makes men petty and vindictive.

- Maugham, W. Somerset

How little it takes to make life unbearable: a pebble in the shoe, a cockroach in the spaghetti, a woman's laugh.

- Mencken, H. L.

Who feareth to suffer suffereth already, because he feareth.

- Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

One must really have suffered oneself to help others.

- Mother Teresa

Without out suffering, our work would just be social work, very good and helpful, but it would not be the work of Jesus Christ, not part of the Redemption. All the desolation of the poor people, not only their material poverty, but their spiritual destitution, must be redeemed. And we must share it, for only by being one with them can we redeem them by bringing God into their lives and bringing them to God.

- Mother Teresa

What really raises one's indignation against suffering is not suffering intrinsically, but the senselessness of suffering.

- Nietzsche, Friedrich

Most people get a fair amount of fun out of their lives, but on balance life is suffering, and only the very young or the very foolish imagine otherwise.

- Orwell, George

Crying is the refuge of plain women, but the ruin of pretty ones.

- Oscar Wilde

Suffering is by no means a privilege, a sign of nobility, a reminder of God. Suffering is a fierce, bestial thing, commonplace, uncalled for, natural as air. It is intangible; no one can grasp it or fight against it; it dwells in time -- is the same thing as time; if it comes in fits and starts, that is only so as to leave the sufferer more defenseless during the moments that follow, those long moments when one relives the last bout of torture and waits for the next.

- Pavese, Cesare

To choose a hardship for ourselves is our only defense against that hardship. This is what is meant by accepting suffering. Those who, by their very nature, can suffer completely, utterly, have an advantage. That is how we can disarm the power of suffering, make it our own creation, our own choice; submit to it. A justification for suicide.

- Pavese, Cesare

We are healed of a suffering only by experiencing it in full.

- Proust, Marcel

A cold in the head causes less suffering than an idea.

- Renard, Jules

I have suffered too much in this world not to hope for another.

- Rousseau, Jean Jacques

Suffering by nature or chance never seems so painful as suffering inflicted on us by the arbitrary will of another.

- Schopenhauer, Arthur
