The discipline of suffering


[...]

Recommended Posts

“The discipline of suffering, of great suffering- do you not know that only this discipline has created all enhancements of man so far? That tension of the soul in unhappiness which cultivates its strength, its shudders face to face with great ruin, its inventiveness and courage in enduring, preserving, interpreting, and exploiting suffering, and whatever has been granted to it of profundity, secret, mask, spirit, cunning, greatness- was it not granted to it through suffering, through the discipline of great suffering?”

 

Friederich Nietzsche

The intellectual version of "no pain no gain".  ;)

 

Seriously though...thought provoking. I guess one can look at it that way once on the other side of the suffering. While in it, its hard to care about what it is producing for good.

 

Nice post:)

He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness… Live, then and be happy beloved children of my heart and never forget that until the day when God shall deign to reveal the future to man, all human wisdom is summed up in these two words – wait and hope.

-Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo
