Pain Plus Suffering Equals Growth
“Anyone who cannot cope with life while he is alive needs one hand to ward off a little his despair over his fate...but with his other hand he can jot down what he sees among the ruins, for he sees different and more things than the others; after all, he is dead in his own lifetime and the real survivor.” Franz Kafka
I cannot experience growth without pain and suffering. I cannot fight what the universe wants to teach me. I want to get my lessons in life. I have lived and I have died in my lifetime, but out of this comes growth. This is what I see in the broken pieces around me.
