to suffer is to seek away out of such suffering for your self as well as for others. I personally  learn from mistakes and when suffering I certainly seek to find a way to relieve such suffering, which in in turn  betters my state of existence.

I've always wanted to respond to Nietzsche. I guess my opportunity is now: Whatever else it may provide, it should also be said that great suffering produces, well ... great suffering.

Friedrich Nietzsche   

I have given a name to my pain, and call it "dog".

Friedrich Nietzsche 

The discipline of suffering, of great suffering - do you not know that it is this discipline alone that has produced all the elevations of humanity so far?
Comment by Dustin Mark Rogers on April 13, 2011 at 1:45am

 Friedrich Nietzsche   

The Christian resolve to find the world ugly and bad, has made the world ugly and bad.

'Rules are made to the poor and indecisive, nothing great can be achieved without imagination. "

More or less:

 

' The payments are made for the poor ones and the undecided ones; nothing large is done without imagination.'

 

So says the babelfish, so shall it be!
