The iron crown of suffering precedes the golden crown of glory.
Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.
— Helen Keller
Either He will shield you from suffering or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace, then, and put aside all anxious thoughts.
— St. Francis de Sales
Suffering and success go together. If you are succeeding without suffering, it is because others before you have suffered; if you are suffering without succeeding, it is that others after you may succeed.
— Edward Judson
