To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering.            Nietzsche

If there is meaning in life at all, then there must be a meaning in suffering.  Suffering is an ineradicable part of life, even as fate and death.  Without suffering and death, human life cannot be complete.Frankel

Although life if full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.              Helen Keller

Be grateful for your pain and suffering, you will need these to grow.

It hurts when you go through something that kills you inside but you have to act like it doesn’t affect you at all.  That feeling when you’re not necessarily sad, but you just feel really empty.  When you feel somewhere between giving up and seeing how much more you can take.  When sometimes you say “I’m okay,” and you just want someone to look you in the eye, hug you tight, and say “I know you’re not.”

Perhaps watching someone you love suffer can teach you even more than suffering yourself can.

Many people are silent sufferers.  Many because they do not reach out and share, others because they have tried and found no one there to care and listen.

Buddha didn’t say life is suffering, just that there is suffering in life.

Life is full of misery, loneliness and suffering – and it’s over much too soon.       Woody Allen

Suffering is our psychological resistance to the pain that happens in our life.  Pain itself is a relatively objective, physical phenomenon.  In other words, events may create physical pain, but they do not in themselves create suffering.  Resistance creates suffering.  Stress happens when our mind resists what is.  Suffering is a basic problem in our life, as it is our mind’s resistance to life as if unfolds.

Suffering passes, while love is eternal.  That’s a gift from G-d.  Don’t waste it.
