There is no labor a person does that is undignified; if they do it right.
Is suffering so very serious? I have come to doubt it.
It may be quite childish, a sort of undignified pastime -- I'm referring to the kind of suffering a man inflicts on a woman or a woman on a man. It's extremely painful. I agree that it's hardly bearable. But I very much fear that this sort of pain deserves no consideration at all. It's no more worthy of respect than old age or illness.
I've never been able to feel that there is anything undignified about making your living by the sweat of your brow.
