Drawn to Many Things, To These We Are Not

Many and various are the things to which a man may feel himself drawn, but one thing there is to which no man ever felt himself drawn in any way, that is, to suffering and humiliation.  This we men think we ought to shun as far as possible, and in any case that we must be compelled to it.

– Soren Kierkegaard

as quoted by Tchividjian, Tullian; Glorious Ruin: How Suffering Sets You Free; David C Cook Publishers, Copyright 2013, Kindle Edition, page 84
