Calamities Quotations

Suffering becomes beautiful when anyone bears great calamities with cheerfulness, not through insensibility but through greatness of mind.
Aristotle

Albert Schweitzer

A high heart ought to bear calamities and not flee them, since in bearing them appears the grandeur of the mind and in fleeing them the cowardice of the heart.
Pietro Aretino

What region of the earth is not full of our calamities?
Virgil

A host is like a general: calamities often reveal his genius.
Horace
