Suffering Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #4

The race of man is suffering
And I can hear the moan, (30-31)

Don't worry – we're all in this suffering together. Feel better? You probably shouldn't. After all, it takes our speaker to point out that we're all suffering. We probably wouldn't even know if not for her.
