our own lives meaning and purpose,
free to redeem our suffering by making something of it.

life and the facts of nature prove his existence must
have led sheltered lives and closed their hearts to
the voice of their brothers' blood.
- Walter Kaufmann

that the Jews should be granted equal rights because

not on account of his ethnic origins or his religion.
- Walter Kaufmann

The only theism worthy of our respect believes in God
not because of the way the world is made but in spite of that.
The only theism that is no less profound than the Buddha's
atheism is that represented in the Bible by Job and Jeremiah.
- Walter Kaufmann

It was also Hegel who established the view that the
different philosophic systems that we find in history
are to be comprehended in terms of development and
that they are generally one-sided because they owe
their origins to a reaction against what has gone before.
- Walter Kaufmann

Job's forthright indictment of the injustice of this world is surely right.
The ways of the world are weird and much more unpredictable
than either scientists or theologians generally make things look.
- Walter Kaufmann

Thirdly, even if we assume that the world is governed by purpose,
we need only add that this purpose -
or,
if there are several, at least one of them -
is not especially intent on preventing suffering,
whether it is indifferent to suffering or actually rejoices in it.
- Walter Kaufmann

that all men sin does not basically affect the problem of suffering.
- Walter Kaufmann

in turning his pains to advantage,
in letting suffering deepens his understanding and sensibility,
in growing through his pains.
- Walter Kaufmann

It is widely assumed, contrary to fact,
that theism necessarily involves the two assumptions
which cannot be squared with the existence of so much suffering,
and that therefore, per impossibile,
they simply have to be squared with the existence of all this suffering,
somehow.
- Walter Kaufmann

It does not follow that the meaning must be given from above;
that life and suffering must come neatly labeled;
that nothing is worth while if the world is not governed by a purpose.
- Walter Kaufmann

In all three cases, and for most human beings,
the problem of suffering poses no difficult problem at all:
one has a world picture in which suffering has its place,
a world picture that takes suffering into account.
- Walter Kaufmann
