Suffering is but another name for the teaching of experience which is the parent of instruction and the schoolmaster of life.
The reward of suffering is experience.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened ambition inspired and success achieved.
There has been enough suffering in our country there has been enough of children whose dreams die before they have a chance to grow and there has been enough of our elders who having served their nation are forced into indignity in their old age.
I've just been growing right along. It's painful but it's a great pain and I like suffering for great results. It's like going to the gym. It hurts really bad at first but after a couple of months and after that diet you're looking so hot.
There's nothing wrong in suffering if you suffer for a purpose. Our revolution didn't abolish danger or death. It simply made danger and death worthwhile.
All violence consists in some people forcing others under threat of suffering or death to do what they do not want to do.
Absence and death are the same - only that in death there is no suffering.
I postpone death by living by suffering by error by risking by giving by losing.
Without health life is not life it is only a state of langour and suffering - an image of death.
With faith and courage generations of Armenians have overcome great suffering and proudly preserved their culture traditions and religion and have told the story of the genocide to an often indifferent world.
Courage! I have shown it for years think you I shall lose it at the moment when my sufferings are to end?
Suffering! We owe to it all that is good in us all that gives value to life we owe to it pity we owe to it courage we owe to it all the virtues.
I don't think the Palestinian people or Afghan children or some other things I'm concerned about are at the top of other people's agendas - not right now when America is going through such a recession and people are suffering across the board financially. But I think all that will change.
The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four Americans is suffering from some form of mental illness. Think of your three best friends. If they're okay then it's you.
Beauty is the still birth of suffering every woman knows that.
I still believe that capitalism is too harsh and I believe that even within that there is a lot of satisfaction and beauty if you happen to be one of the lucky ones although that doesn't eradicate the reality of the suffering. It's all true at once kind of humming and sublime.
I didn't appreciate the young woman that I was or my young beauty because I was so obsessed with the fact that I felt fat. It's never good to add to anybody else's suffering. It's an important topic to really get the gravity and the importance of - dealing with dignity.
My denial and irresponsible attitude about asthma put me at great risk and caused me so much needless suffering. My hope is that the kids I talk to learn to open up about their asthma become educated about their condition and seek help.
And we know there has been horrendous loss of life and suffering and we know that there is anger. Anyone who came anywhere near the general election in constituencies with a substantial Muslim population knows that.

I think the idea that you can go this alone is - was a huge mistake. And unfortunately there was a price paid in terms of suffering and pain for people in New Orleans.
Wisdom comes alone through suffering.
I do not believe that sheer suffering teaches. If suffering alone taught all the world would be wise since everyone suffers. To suffering must be added mourning understanding patience love openness and the willingness to remain vulnerable.
