SimchaMinute by Rabbi Avigdor Miller
We're put in this world to be formed into something beautiful. And so a pummel here... and a knock here.... and a punch here. We think it's all a waste. We would like to get along without it, but that's making us, it's rounding us out, it's smoothing us. It's making us into what we are supposed to become.
Part of our being in this world is involuntary perfection. — Evil of Confusion (#6)
