On Suffering

On Suffering

Carl Gustav Jung (1875 – 1961), “The healthy man does not torture others. Generally it is the tortured who turn into torturers.”

Euripides (480 – 406 BC), “When a good man is hurt, all who would be called good must suffer with him.”

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (1844 – 1900), “What really raises one’s indignation against suffering is not suffering intrinsically, but the senseless of suffering.”

Helen Keller (1880 – 1968), “The best and most beautiful things in life cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.”

Rose Kennedy (1890 – 1995), “Birds sing after a storm. Why shouldn’t people feel as free to delight in whatever sunlight remains to them?”
