Drop by drop upon the heart

Watching a documentary on the life of RFK, I came across what is now one of my favorite quotes. This one is from Aeschylus, and RFK used it as part of his speech that he gave upon hearing news of MLK's assasination.

“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.”
