Suffering

A truth that many people never understand is that the more you try to avoid suffering the more you suffer, because smaller and more insignificant things begin to torture you in proportion to your fear of being hurt.
__Thomas Merton



There is suffering in life, and there are defeats. No one can avoid them. But it’s better to lose some of the battles in the struggles for your dreams, than to be defeated without ever knowing what you’re fighting for.
__Paulo Coelho



Ignorance about who we really are, is the origin of all human suffering.

__Buddha
