“Suffering equals hope destroyed, and suffering is more than pain: it is loss of control, it is despair, it is the loss of hope. However, if the loss of hope transforms pain into suffering, the return of hope transforms suffering back again into manageable pain. Suffering is the loss of autonomy; hope is its restoration.”
