"Many of us are born, only to spend years moving through this life asleep. And it must be said that often it is suffering that wakes us up. And so, we cannot make a long-term enemy of our suffering; if it is the very thing which leads the way to our liberation."
"Love the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love."
The Brothers Karamazov
