  • Today just two quotes because the Wikipedia is better on this than the Vicipedia which will also be getting some new entries in the next month.
  • Pain is always new to the sufferer, but loses its originality for those around him.
  • Alphonse Daudet, La doulou: (la douleur), 1887-1895 (Paris: Librairie de France, 1930) p. 16; Julian Barnes (ed. and trans.) In the Land of Pain (New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2002) p. 19.
    There is no detachment where there is no pain. And there is no pain endured without hatred or lying unless detachment is present too.

  • Simone Weil (1910-1943) French Philosopher
