Pade­cer and Pas­sion

Pade­cer (Span­ish for “to suf­fer”) comes from the Latin pati, mean­ing, “to suf­fer.” From that same root, we get the Eng­lish… pas­sion.

Yes, by de­f­i­n­i­tion, pas­sion nec­es­sar­i­ly en­tails suf­fer­ing.  Does­n’t that tell you every­thing you need to know about love?
