yoma 74

passive waiting as a form of suffering

(the command to "afflicit one's soul" on Yom Kippur is about not eating, drinking etc. not actively making one suffer. manna is also discussed as miracle food that appeared in the wilderness, also caused hunger and suffering, as it could not be stored overnight. so one would have to just wait and hope that there would be food)
