If you enjoy the fragrance of a rose, you must accept the thorns which it bears.
The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest.
The ideal man bears the accidents of life with dignity and grace, making the best of circumstances.
The measure of a man is the way he bears up under misfortune.
Just as the soul fills the body, so God fills the world. Just as the soul bears the body, so God endures the world. Just as the soul sees but is not seen, so God sees but is not seen. Just as the soul feeds the body, so God gives food to the world.
