Quote: A Bedside Book of Saints

Fr. Aloysius Roche in A Bedside Book Of Saints:
To shrink from suffering is to suffer twofold. None feel the cold so much as those who go shivering at the very thought of the cold. "timidity and an overnourished imagination are real sources of suffering. To look our trials steadily in the face, to strip them of their false and exaggerated colors, is to diminish their torments by at least one-half. The saints were brave in this sense, and to this extent they suffered less than we; but they suffered.
