„We are suffering. We have suffered, and we are not afraid to suffer in order to win our cause.“

—  Cesar Chavez American farm worker, labor leader, and civil rights activist 1927 - 1993
The Plan of Delano (1965), Context: We are suffering. We have suffered, and we are not afraid to suffer in order to win our cause. We have suffered unnumbered ills and crimes in the name of the Law of the Land. Our men, women, and children have suffered not only the basic brutality of stoop labor, and the most obvious injustices of the system; they have also suffered the desperation of knowing that the system caters to the greed of callous men and not to our needs. Now we will suffer for the purpose of ending the poverty, the misery, and the injustice, with the hope that our children will not be exploited as we have been. They have imposed hunger on us, and now we hunger for justice. We draw our strength from the very despair in which we have been forced to live. We shall endure.

„Give us back our suffering, we cry to Heaven in our hearts — suffering rather than indifferentism; for out of nothing comes nothing. But out of suffering may come the cure. Better have pain than paralysis!“

—  Florence Nightingale English social reformer and statistician, and the founder of modern nursing 1820 - 1910
Cassandra (1860), Context: Give us back our suffering, we cry to Heaven in our hearts — suffering rather than indifferentism; for out of nothing comes nothing. But out of suffering may come the cure. Better have pain than paralysis! A hundred struggle and drown in the breakers. One discovers the new world. But rather, ten times rather, die in the surf, heralding the way to that new world, than stand idly on the shore!

„My final belief is suffering. And I begin to believe that I do not suffer.“

—  Antonio Porchia Italian Argentinian poet 1885 - 1968
Voces (1943), Mi última creencia es sufrir. Y comienzo a creer que no sufro.
