...There is an art to suffering well...

"If we take care of the suffering inside us, we have more clarity, energy, and strength to help address the suffering violence, poverty, and inequality of our loved ones as well as the suffering in our community and the world. If, however, we are preoccupied with the fear and despair in us, we can't help remove the suffering of others. There is an art to suffering well. If we know how to take care of our suffering, we not only suffer much, much less, we also create more happiness around us and in the world."

- Thich Nhat Hanh (No Mud, No Lotus)
