Suffering, Hope and Transcendence

Carol Pearson.jpg

“Suffering is the leveler that reminds us of our common mortality, that none of us is exempt from the difficulties of human life. When suffering and despair come together, they provide us with the opportunity to affirm hope, love ourselves, and to say, against all odds, ‘And yet I will love, and yet I will hope.’ It is then that we learn transcendence; it is then that we know the beauty of oneness, of being part of the network of connectedness.”

–Carol Pearson (American Director of the James MacGregor Burns Academy of Leadership, a Professor of Leadership Studies at the University of Maryland and Coauthor of the Pearson-Marr Archetype Indicator, 1944-)
