Without pain, how could we know joy?

' This is an old argument in


the field of thinking about suffering and its stupidity and lack of
sophistication could be plumbed for centuries but suffice it to say that
the existence of broccoli does not, in any way, affect the taste of
chocolate.
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering
itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of
its dreams, because every second of the search is a second's
encounter with God and with eternity.
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

Pain is the feeling. Suffering is the effect the pain inflicts. If one can
endure pain, one can live without suffering. If one can withstand pain,
one can withstand anything. If one can learn to control pain, one can
learn to control oneself.
James Frey, My Friend Leonard

Time is not the great teacher. Experience is. A man may live a whole
life, but if he never leaves his home to experience that life, he dies
knowing nothing. A mere child who has suffered and lived can be the
wiser of the two.
Lynsay Sands, Love Bites

But pain's like water. It finds a way to push through any seal. There's
no way to stop it. Sometimes you have to let yourself sink inside of it
before you can learn how to swim to the surface.

When a person screams in pain, the actual pain is only half the
noise they make. The other half is the terror at being forced to accept
that they exist.
