There's nothing wrong in suffering, if you suffer for a purpose. Our revolution didn't abolish danger or death. It simply made danger and death worthwhile.

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.

Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.

Sometimes absence of suffering is almost equal to happiness… Though whether martyr or sinner, suffering is inevitable, alas.

Even though danger and death might be worthwhile depending on circumstances, they should be avoided at all costs for the benefit of mankind at large.

As a kid my older sister kicked me in the you know whats, my suffering, her joy. It was a moment of bliss when the searing pain finally eased.

Purpose?

This sounds like from a politician. Suffering is wrong, to be avoided at all cost. There is no purpose in suffering. We bear the pain for a purpose. We try to avoid the suffering if we can even we have purpose.

Applause You didn't fear to say it all. I am with you H.G. Wells!

Many slickers should experience suffering!
