What Belongs to Greatness.  Who can attain to anything great if he does not feel in himself the force and will to inflict great pain?  The ability to suffer is a small matter - weak women and even slaves can acheive virtuosity in that.  But not to perish from internal distress and doubt when one inflicts great suffering and hears the cry of suffering : that is great, that belongs to greatness.
