Suffering Heart


Tell your heart that the fear of
suffering is worse than the
suffering itself. And that no
heart has ever suffered when it
goes in search of a dream.
-The Alchemist-

  4. Well, my human is not so sure about the last part! She's suffered lots in pursuit of her dreams. Although perhaps not as much as if she hadn't followed them.

  5. I actually don't agree with this one, the actually suffering can be much, much worse. Or so has been my experience.

  7. This is an interesting one. It holds true for some things -- like worry over sick kitties who may not be as sick as they look -- but not others. We'll have to ponder it. Good food for thought!

  8. That's a wonderful quote! Mom gets herself all worked up about things that, very often, don't amount to anything.

  10. "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when ... it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear

  13. Lovely! We hope your heart is not suffering, and truly fear of reality is more painful than reality itself.

  14. Usually true, but sometimes the suffering is far worse than the fear of it.
