Not till I was shut up to prayer and to the study of God's word by the loss of earthly joys--sickness destroying the flavor of them all--did I begin to penetrate the mystery that is learned under the cross. And wondrous as it is, how simple is that mystery! To love Christ, and to know that I love Him--this is all.
      - Mrs. Elizabeth Payson Prentiss

Some of His children must go into the furnace to testify that the Son of God is there with them.
      - Mrs. Elizabeth Payson Prentiss

Those whose suffering is due to love are, as we say of certain invalids, their own physicians.
      - Marcel Proust

We are healed of a suffering only by experiencing it to the full.
      - Marcel Proust

Suffering is my gain; I bow
  To my heavenly Father's will,
    And receive it hushed and still:
      Suffering is my worship now.
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)

We have suffered lightly, if we have suffered what we should weep for.
  [Lat., Levia perpessi sumus
    Si flenda patimur.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca), Agamemnon
         (665)

Mirth cannot move a soul in agony.
      - William Shakespeare

If there be more, more woeful, hold it in,
  For I am almost ready to dissolve,
    Hearing of this.
      - William Shakespeare, King Lear
         (Albany at V, iii)

Oh, I have suffered
  With those that I saw suffer!
      - William Shakespeare, The Tempest
         (Miranda at I, ii)

Those who inflict must suffer, for they see
  The work of their own hearts, and that must be
    Our chastisement or recompense.
      - Percy Bysshe Shelley, Julian and Maddalo
         (l. 494)

For there are deeds
  Which have no form, sufferings which have no tongue.
      - Percy Bysshe Shelley, The Cenci
         (act III, sc. 1)

The cross of Christ is the pledge to us that the deepest suffering may be the condition of the highest blessing; the sign, not of God's displeasure, but of His widest and most compassionate face.
      - Dean Arthur Penrhyn Stanley

Can it be, O Christ in heaven, that the holiest suffer most,
  That the strongest wander furthest, and more hopelessly are lost?
      - Sarah Williams ("Saidie"),
        Is it so, O Christ in Heaven? (st. 3)

Don't look forward to the day when you stop suffering, because
  when it comes you'll know that you're dead.
      - Tennessee Williams

He could afford to suffer
  With those whom he saw suffer.
      - William Wordsworth, Excursion (I, 370)
