History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.
Pain and foolishness lead to great bliss and complete knowledge, for Eternal Wisdom created nothing under the sun in vain.
The good thing about pain is it lets you know you're still alive.
Let no failure, disappointments, death or despair bow down your head. When you experience any of these, take a rest, reflect and find a way around them. Draw strength from your pain and pursue your dreams until you reach glory and happiness.
Men may scoff, and men may pray, but they pay every pleasure with a pain.

What greater thing is there for two human souls,
than to feel that they are joined for life-

to be one with each other
in silent unspeakable memories ...

In silence lies the ability to listen; to listen to ourselves, to others and to God. Listening is a lost art. Without it we cannot communicate, we cannot relate to each other and so we cannot live life meaningfully. We need to learn to listen. Sitting in silence allows us to listen to ourselves and to understand. This silence can heal. The worries, the pain can be healed when we listen. Spiritual medicine is ever-present in the soul. Whenever we need it, to whatever extent we need it, we can find it within.
