"What really raises one's indignation against suffering
is not suffering intrinsically, but the
senselessness of suffering."
"A sad soul can kill you quicker,
far quicker, than a germ."
"It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.'
I do not agree. The wounds remain.
In time, the mind, protecting its sanity,
covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens.
But it is never gone."
"When a good man is hurt, all who would be called good
must suffer with him."
"Although the world is full of suffering,
it is also full of overcoming it."
"The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create,
to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and
to be greater than our suffering."
"Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls;
the most massive characters are seared with scars."
