"In some ways suffering ceases to be suffering at the moment it finds a meaning, such as the meaning of a sacrifice... Life is never made unbearable by circumstances, but only by lack of meaning and purpose... Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom." (Viktor Emil Frankl -- an Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist and Holocaust survivor)
