Florence Nightingale Quote

Give us back our suffering, we cry to Heaven in our hearts — suffering rather than indifferentism; for out of nothing comes nothing. But out of suffering may come the cure.

But rather, ten times rather, die in the surf, heralding the way to that new world, than stand idly on the shore!


Cassandra (1860)
