Simone Weil – The wounds of misfortune bleed

Share this quote:
Misfortunes leave wounds which bleed drop by drop even in sleep; thus little by little they train man by force and dispose him to wisdom in spite of himself. Man must learn to think of himself as a limited and dependent being; and only suffering teaches him this.

Simone Weil   (1909-1943)
