Rudolf Steiner: "All real knowledge, all knowledge that can truly be called great, is born from pain, from inner travail. When with the means for the attainment of knowledge described in anthroposophical spiritual science one tries to tread the path into the higher worlds, the goal can be reached only by going through pain. Without having suffered, suffered intensely, and thereby having become free from the oppression of pain, no one can come to know the spiritual world."
|"Wisdom is crystallized pain." — Rudolf Steiner
