Words are a defense against the attacks of life. It says to life you can't deceive me. I know your habits, I foresee and enjoy watching your reactions, and steal your secrets by involving you in cunning obstructions that halt your normal flow."

The thing most feared in secret always happens… All it needs is a little courage. The more the pain grows clear and definite, the more the instinct for life asserts itself and the thought of suicide recedes. It seemed easy when I thought of it. Those we view as weak have done it. It needs humility not pride, I am sickened by all this. Not words actions I shall say no more.

The other defense against things in general is silence as we muster strength for a fresh leap forward. But we must impose that silence on ourselves not have it imposed on us, not even by death. To choose hardship for ourselves is our only defense against that hardship. This is what is meant by accepting suffering. Not being resigned to it, but using it as a springboard. Controlling the effect of the blow those who, by their very nature can suffer completely utterly have an advantage. That is how we can disarm the power of suffering, make it our own creation,our own choice submit to it. A justification for suicide, charity has no place in all this. Unless, perhaps, this act of violence is in itself the truest form of charity.
