|"In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."|
Rudolf Steiner: "We should be clear about how much of our dissatisfaction fundamentally really depends on ourselves. Some people cannot do enough to dig up those things everywhere which make them dissatisfied. And we feel that it is not only happier natures but also better natures who are capable of ensuring that even if the worst things constantly approach us, we nevertheless have reasons to be happy about one thing or another. There are such reasons. And anyone who does not want to admit that they exist can only blame themselves. Satisfaction, particularly when it is caused by a better characteristic of our soul, strengthens the etheric body in respect of its vitality."
