If you have a suggestion for a quote, or a weekly theme, please let me know in a comment below.

It is easier to find men who will volunteer to die, than to find those who are willing to endure pain with patience. Julius Caesar

This seems a no brainer: who would willingly accept pain? However, we should ask ourselves how far do we go to avoid possible pain, real or imagined? Are we stopping ourselves from trying new experiences? Are we so scared to be hurt that we close up to the outside world or build a formidable wall to keep everyone away? (no political commentary intended)

Would you wish you never felt pain, at least physical pain? You may want to rethink that: there is actually a very rare disease called CIP(A) that makes it impossible to feel pain, and it can be life threatening, as discussed in this article
