He who learns must suffer

I don’t know why I  felt attracted towards a  quote from ancient Greek poet Aeschylus,  used by  Robert Kennedy on death of Martin Luther King. Here is the quote

He who learns must suffer

And even in our sleep,

the pain we cannot forget

falls drop by drop upon our heart,

and in our own despair,

against our will,

comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.
