The pains of childbirth come to the mother in spasms which strain heart, womb, and lung but which, coming between intervals of rest, are rendered more bearable. So the sufferings and troubles of a whole lifetime most often come in cycles and alternations which give rest from them or afford actual pleasure, and are rendered more bearable also.
