I'm looking for quotes, aforisms, dialogues, pondering, tracts and other worthwhile texts on the subject of suffering.

I'm interested in getting a broad view on the nature of suffering. I know that the line between that and pain isn't all that clear, and the view on the role of suffering is quite different depending on if you're catholic or buddhist (both in what it is and what role it plays), but this is a general inquiry to find interesting texts which deal with the same word, and thereby hopefully a somewhat similar topic.
