The quotation does make sense, and it communicates a point of view regarding suffering. Whether you agree or disagree with that point of view depends largely on your acceptance or rejection of the implied "either/or" thinking the quotation contains.
According to the quotation, a person can either resign himself or herself to the reality of suffering and then do nothing about it, or they can reject passivity and choose to do something about it. That "something" involves seeking ways to lessen its deleterious effects on the human spirit.
Resignation and repudiation are by implication the implied opposites in the quotation. To resign oneself to suffering is to accept it as inevitable and, by implication, to suffer in silence. On the other hand, to repudiate suffering is to reject passivity and seek for ways to ameliorate it.
