THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

Suffering is the crucible in which the character is burnished.

SUFFERING QUOTATIONS

ABRAHAM JOSHUA HESCHEL
A religious man is one who holds God and man in one thought at one time, at all times, who suffers harm done to others, whose greatest passion is compassion, whose greatest strength is love, and defiance of despair.
New York Journal American, April 5, 1963

ALBERT CAMUS
In the depth of winter, I finally learned that that there was within me an invincible summer.

ALDOUS HUXLEY
At least two thirds of our miseries spring from human stupidity, human malice and those great motivators and justifiers of malice and stupidity, idealism, dogmatism and proselytizing zeal on behalf of religious or political idols..

CORITA KENT
Love the moment. Flowers grow out of dark moments. Therefore each moment is vital. It affects the whole. Life is a succession of such moments and to live each is to succeed

    Dear Mr. Butisingh,

    Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment on my blog. It really is a delight to find another kindred spirit who hopes for peace from unity, faith, and love among humanity and is saddened by the divisiveness present in this world. May God continue to grant you good health.

    Best,

    Chera
