"Pain is the root of knowledge and happiness."

Simone Weil

"Pain is the root of knowledge and happiness."

“A science which does not bring us nearer to God is worthless.”

“Two prisoners whose cells adjoin communicate with each other by knocking on the wall. The wall is the thing which separates them but is also their means of communication. It is the same with us and God. Every separation is a link.”

“The intelligent man who is proud of his intelligence is like the condemned man who is proud of his large cell”

“The poet produces the beautiful by fixing his attention on something real”

Charity. To love human beings in so far as they are nothing. That is to love them as God does.”

“The highest ecstasy is the attention at its fullest.”

“Difficult as it is really to listen to someone in affliction, it is just as difficult for him to know that compassion is listening to him.”

“The love of our neighbor in all its fullness simply means being able to say to him, "What are you going through?"”

“In Switzerland they had brotherly love, five hundred years of democracy and peace, and what did they produce? The cuckoo clock!”

“To be a hero or a heroine, one must give an order to oneself.”

the pain ...

A friend is someone who, upon seeing another friend in immense pain, would rather be the one experiencing the pain than to have to watch their friend suffer.

Don't hold to anger, hurt or pain. They steal your energy and keep you from love.

There is one pain I often feel, which you will never know. It is caused by the absence of you.

To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.

Let us talk sense to the American people. Let us tell them the truth, that there are no gains without pains.

Pleasure of love lasts but a moment, pain of love lasts a lifetime.

One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: that word is love.

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advise, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand

It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start.

Wisdom is nothing more than healed pain.

If men as individuals surrender to the call of their elementary instincts, avoiding pain and seeking satisfaction only for their own selves, the result for them all taken together must be a state of insecurity, of fear, and of promiscuous misery.

No gains without pains.

People in high life are hardened to the wants and distresses of mankind as surgeons are to their bodily pains.

“The greater your capacity to love, the greater your capacity to feel the pain.” Jenifer Aniston

MAX LUCADO "the deepest love is built not on passion and romance but on common mission and sacrifice"

“Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.”

ROMANI 5:3-5
3 Ba mai mult, ne bucurăm chiar şi în necazurile noastre; căci ştim că necazul aduce răbdare, 4 răbdarea aduce biruinţă în încercare, iar biruinţa aceasta aduce nădejdea. 5 Însă nădejdea aceasta nu înşală, pentrucă dragostea lui Dumnezeu a fost turnată în inimile noastre prin Duhul Sfînt, care ne -a fost dat.

(Romani 8:18".)Eu socotesc că
suferintele din vremea de acum nu sînt vrednice să fie puse alături de slava viitoare, care are să fie descoperită fată de voi"Adică suferintele de "acum" lucrează în viitor o slavă pe care Dumnezeu o va descoperi la timpul potrivit.
