Difficulties are meant to rouse, not discourage. The human spirit is to grow strong by conflict.
— William Ellery Channing

Pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our consciences, but shouts in our pains. It is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world.
C. S. Lewis rousing quote

You must rouse into people's consciousness their own prudence and strength, if you want to raise their character.
— Marquis De Vauvenargues

Novels so often provide an anodyne and not an antidote, glide one into torpid slumbers instead of rousing one with a burning brand.
— Virginia Woolf

You have not found your place until all your faculties are roused, and your whole nature consents and approves of the work you are doing.
— rousing quotation by Orison Swett Marden
