He who learns must suffer
And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget
Falls drop by drop upon the heart,
And in our own despair, against our will,
Comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.
- Aeschylus (Greek 525 to 456 B.C.) (Quoted by Bobby Kennedy in a
speech written on the spot from a flatbed truck in Indianapolis on the
night Martin Luther King was assassinated).
