The above quote is, of course, from Jedi Master Yoda.
It occurred to me how this contrasts with a passage from the book of Romans:
"Suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope."
And for extra credit, even more crazy philosophical contrast. Consider the Buddha's Four Noble Truths:
1. Everything is suffering.
2. Suffering is caused by attachment.
3. Suffering can end (the achievement of Nirvana).
4. The true path is Dharma (following the Eight-Fold Path of correct living).
