    Evil being the root of mystery, pain is the root of knowledge.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)

    Evil is neither suffering nor sin; it is both at the same time, it is something common to them both. For they are linked together; sin makes us suffer and suffering makes us evil, and this indissoluble complex of suffering and sin is the evil in which we are submerged against our will, and to our horror.
    —Simone Weil (1909–1943)
