Another thing that people must sacrifice is their suffering. It is also very difficult to sacrifice one’s suffering. A man will renounce any pleasures you like, but he will not give up his suffering. Man is made in such a way that he is never so much attached to anything as he is to his suffering. And it is necessary to be free from suffering. No one who is not free from suffering, who has not sacrificed his suffering, can work. Later on, a great deal must be said about suffering. Nothing can be attained without suffering, but at the same time one must begin by sacrificing suffering. Now, decipher what this means.

—Georges Ivanovich Gurdjieff
