“Affliction is a treasure, and scarce any man hath enough of it.”
“Although affliction cometh not forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground; / Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward.”
“No one could be more happy than a man who has never known affliction”
“I have known no man of genius who had not to pay, in some affliction or defect either physical or spiritual, for what the gods had given him”
“I AM the man that hath seen affliction by the rod of his wrath.”
“Affliction is not sent in vain, young man, from that good God, who chastens whom he loves.”
“Comfort the afflicted, and afflict the comfortable.”
Finley Peter Dunne
