"The Buddhist definition of the kingdom of God is not a place of no suffering. It's a place where people understand their suffering to create happiness. We need mud in order to grow lotus flowers. Therefore we need suffering in order to understand our own happiness and compassion." 

- Thich Nhat Hanh
