"Wisdom Comes" as written by Joseph Duplantier, Mario Duplantier, Christian Andreu and Jean-michel Labadie....
"He who learns must suffer
And even in our sleep
Pain that cannot forget
Falls drop by drop upon the heart

And in our own despair
Against our will
Comes wisdom to us
By the awful grace of god"

Ease your pain
I cannot
With suffering
I don't

He who learns must suffer
And even in our sleep
Pain falls drop by drop
Upon the heart

Against our will
Wisdom comes

    Song FactThe chorus in Agamemnon, a famous play by the Greek playwright Aeschylus (circa 525/524 BC—circa 456-455 BC) makes the following statement (English translation):

    “He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain, which cannot forget, falls drop by drop upon the heart, until, in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom through the awful grace of God.”
