Famous quotes containing the word afflicted:

    We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be made visible in our bodies.
    Bible: New Testament, 2 Corinthians 4:8-10.

    The afflicted are not listened to. They are like someone whose tongue has been cut out and who occasionally forgets the fact. When they move their lips no ear perceives any sound. And they themselves soon sink into impotence in the use of language, because of the certainty of not being heard.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)

    And, re-assembling our afflicted powers,
    Consult how we may henceforth most offend.
    John Milton (1608–1674)
