#923 The art of living

Suffering is the sandpaper of our life. It does its work of shaping us for becoming wise.  ~Ram Dass

Perhaps the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave.  ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

The art of living lies less in eliminating our troubles than in growing with them.  ~ Bernard M. Baruch

The brook would lose its song if you removed the rocks.  ~ Fred Beck

If we will be quiet and ready enough, we shall find compensation in every disappointment.  ~ Henry David Thoreau

(quotes about suffering, hardship, overcoming, life)

- How much have you been shaped by suffering?
- How much have you grown?
- How quiet and ready are you?
