Kärsimys ei jalosta, vaan rusentaa ja lopulta murtaa vahvankin.
The negative challenge word kärsimys (suggested by Rakkauslapsi) can be translated into English e.g. suffering, affliction, distress, pain. This week is the Holy (Passion) Week.
Suffering does not make anyone better. It rather crushes and finally breaks even the strongest person. More pictures of this theme can be browsed on Photo Thursday´s site.
