Take pride in your pain; you are stronger than those who have none.
-Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry

  1. I take issue with her use of the word "than." Sure, the way we react to pain can sometimes make us stronger (sometimes not), but why do we need to compare ourselves to others in our capacity to draw strength from suffering? Besides, others' pain almost always seems paltry compared our own.
