“God is the refuge of the poor and the comforter of the needy. His compassion encompasses men when troubles weigh heavily upon them. Yet, tribulation and adversity, sorrow and suffering are not to be thought of as needless burdens imposed upon the difficulties inseparable from earthy life. They are things of value, which open the eyes to Truth. Tempering the spirit, as iron is tempered in the flame.”
The Kolbrin, Book of Gleanings (GLN:2:28)
