Quotes and Sayings about Pain

I am yet to meet a person who haven't felt pain in his or her life and I believe almost everyone have felt it at least once. But some famous people see pain as a good sign, they see it as a teacher and learn from it in their lives. There is a lot you can learn from the pains you suffer from.
