Pain and the human heart!

“One person who has mastered life is better than a thousand persons who have mastered only the contents of books, but no one can get anything out of life without God. Logical reason enables us to adapt ourselves to circumstances, instead of seeking blindly to satisfy our impulses.”


The Greek Philosopher in 525 B.C. knew what pain really meant and articulated it with such in-depth knowledge with these heart-wrenching words; “Pain for which we cannot forget, falls drop by drop unto the heart, and in our despondency and against our will, come wisdom through the awesome Grace of God!”


And since the pain of the mind is worst than the pain of the body, we must go back a little way to the choice mercies of yesterday; and though all may be dark now, we must light up the lamps of the past; they shall glitter through the darkness and we must trust in the Lord, till the day break and the shadows flee away. It is not what happens to us in life that defines who we are, but how well we rise after we fall.


“What oxygen is to the lung, such is hope for the meaning of life.”
