“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.” 

~Helen Keller


No one wants to suffer or expose themselves to pain or sorrow.  However, it is a reality of life that these will be part of your array of experiences.  The key is to know that we will have both joy and sorrow and revel and fully experiences all the joy life has to offer, as well as recognize when you are suffering that you will get through it with new learning and the ability to find joy even more readily with a stronger character.
