    Suffering quotes by:    

Difficulty excites the mind to the dignity which sustains and finally conquers misfortunes, and the ordeal refines while it chastens.

    Author: James H. Aughey

God brings men into deep waters not to drown them, but to cleanse them.

    Author: James H. Aughey

God makes crosses of great variety; He makes some of iron and lead, that look as if they must crush; some of straw, that seem so light, and yet are no less difficult to carry; some He makes of precious stones and gold, that dazzle the eye and excite the envy of spectators, but in reality are as well able to crucify as those which are so much dreaded.

    Author: James H. Aughey

Sorrow comes soon enough without despondency. It does a man no good to carry around a lightning-rod to attract trouble.

    Author: James H. Aughey

The chief secret of comfort lies in not suffering trifles to vex us, and in prudently cultivating an undergrowth of small pleasures, since very few great ones are let on long leases.

    Author: James H. Aughey

This is one of the sad conditions of life, that experience is not transmissible. No man will learn from the suffering of another; he must suffer himself.

    Author: James H. Aughey

Duty does not consist in suffering everything, but in suffering everything for duty. Sometimes, indeed, it is our duty not to suffer.

    Author: Alexandre Vinet

If you bear the cross unwillingly, you make it a burden, and load yourself more heavily; but you must bear it.

    Author: Thomas a Kempis

Suffering times are sealing times. The primitive Christians found them so, and the suffering saints in Mary's days found them so. When the furnace is seven times hotter than ordinary, the Spirit of the Lord comes and seals up a man's pardon in his bosom, his peace with God, and his title to heaven. Blessed Bradford looked upon his sufferings as an evidence to him that he was on the right way to heaven.

    Author: Thomas Brooks

The godly have some good in them, therefore the devil afflicts them; and some evil in them, therefore God afflicts them.

    Author: Thomas Watson

The truth that many people never understand, until it is too late, is that the more you try to avoid suffering the more you suffer because smaller and more insignificant things begin to torture you in proportion to your fear of being hurt.

    Author: Thomas Merton

When you suffer and lose, that does not mean you are being disobedient to God. In fact, it might mean you're right in the centre of His will. The path of obedience is often marked by times of suffering and loss.
