How sweetly you do minister to love,
That know love's grief by his complexion!
William Shakespeare Claudio, in Much Ado About Nothing

Where there is anger, there is always pain underneath.
All our knowledge merely helps us to die a more painful death than animals that know nothing.

We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey.
I'm feeling a lot of pain -- a lot of hurt.
I just got to keep going at it. Just ignore the pain and let it heal up.
