Thought For The Day

Today’s quotes surround the subject of pain and suffering and how sometimes those things can be a good thing…

“Without pain, there would be no suffering, without suffering we would never learn from our mistakes. To make it right, pain and suffering is the key to all windows, without it there is no way of life.” (Angelina Jolie)

“In order to have great happiness you have to have great pain and unhappiness – otherwise how would you know when you’re happy?” (Leslie Caron)

“Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty…I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.” (Theodore Roosevelt)

“Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers, but to be fearless in facing them. Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but for the heart to conquer it.” (Rabindranath Tagore)

Peace, love, light, and joy,
