Thought For The Day

Today’s quotes focus on the subject of suffering and might help to bring some comfort to those who presently are going through deep trials and tribulations…

“Now that I’m suffering, I feel closer to people who suffer more than I ever did before. The other night, on TV, I saw people in Bosnia running across the street, getting fired upon, killed, innocent victims…and I just started to cry. I feel their anguish as if it were my own. I don’t know any of these people. But – how can I put this? I’m almost…drawn to them.” (Morrie Schwartz)

“The real problem is not why some pious, humble, believing people suffer, but why some do not.” (C.S. Lewis)

“The worst thing in the world is watching someone you love suffer in pain when there is nothing you can do to stop it.” (Vanessa Wilhoit)

“Suffering is part of our training program for becoming wise.” (Ram Dass)

If you have suffered more than your fair share of difficulties in life, perhaps you are being prepared to serve some greater purpose that will require you to be equipped with the wisdom you have acquired through your trials.” (Robin S. Sharma)

Peace, love, light, and joy,
