Resilience

In some ways, suffering ceases to be suffering the moment it finds meaning

∗*∗*∗

Life is never made unbearable by circumstances, but only by lack of meaning and purpose.

∗*∗*∗

What is to give light must first endure burning.

∗*∗*∗

Between stimulus and reaction there is a space. In that space  is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

∗*∗*∗

What man actually needs is not a tensionless state but rather the striving and struggling for a worthwhile goal, a freely chosen task.
