Pain quotes by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
#1. The only thing that [Amaranta] did not keep in mind in her fearsome plan was that in spite of her pleas to God she might die before Rebeca. That was, in fact, what happened. At the final moment, however, Amaranta did not feel frustrated, but, on the contrary, free of all bitterness because death had awarded her the privilege of announcing itself several years ahead of time. She saw it on one burning afternoon sewing with her on the porch a short time after Meme had left for school. She saw it because it was a woman dressed in blue with long hair, with a sort of antiquated look, and with a certain resemblance to Pilar Ternera during the time when she had helped with the chores in the kitchen. Fernanda was present several times and did not see her, in spite of the fact that she was so real – so human and on one occasion asked of Amaranta the favor of threading a needle. Death did not tell her when she was going to die or whether her hour was assigned before that of Rebeca, but ordered her to begin sewing her own shroud on the next sixth of April. She was authorized to make it as complicated and as fine as she wanted, but just as honestly executed as Rebeca's, and she was told that she would die without pain, fear, or bitterness at dusk on the day that she finished it. Trying to waste the most time possible, Amaranta ordered some rough flax and spun the thread herself. She did it so carefully that the work alone took four years. Then she started the sewing. As she got closer to #Quote by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Pain quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#2. Cauldron save me," she began whispering, her voice lovely and even-like music. "Mother hold me," she went on, reciting a prayer similar to one I'd heard once before, when Tamlin eased the passing of that lesser faerie who'd died in the foyer. Another of Amarantha's victims. "Guide me to you." I was unable to raise my dagger, unable to take the step that would close the distance between us. "Let me pass through the gates; let me smell that immortal land of milk and honey."

Silent tears slide down my face and neck, where they dampened the filthy collar of my tunic. As she spoke, I knew I would be forever barred from that immortal land. I knew that whatever Mother she meant would never embrace me. In saving Tamlin, I was to damn myself.

I couldn't do this-couldn't lift that dagger again.

"Let me fear no evil," she breathed, staring at me-into me, into the soul that was cleaving itself apart."Let me feel no pain."

A sob broke from my lips. "I'm sorry," I moaned.

"Let me enter eternity," She breathed.

I wept as I understood. Kill me now, she was saying. Do it fast. Don't make it hurt. Kill me now. Her bronze eyes were steady, if not sorrowful. Infinitely, infinitely worse than the pleading of the dead faerie beside her.

I couldn't do it.

But she held my gaze-held my gaze and nodded.

As I lifted the ash dagger, something inside me fractured so completely that there would be no hope of #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Pain quotes by Helen Oyeyemi
#3. Aya overflows with acheor power. When the accent is taken off it, achedescribes, in English, bone-deep pain. But otherwise acheis blood..fleeing and returning ... red momentum. Acheis, acheis is is, kin to fear
a frayed pause near the end of a thread where the clothe matters too much to fail. The kind of need that takes you across water on nothing but bare feet. Ache is energy, damage, it is constant, in Aya's mind all the time. She was born that way
powerful, half mad, but quiet about it. #Quote by Helen Oyeyemi
Pain quotes by Adele Rose
#4. PE! This word was comprised of two single letters, which would normally not cause anyone any trouble. They were two single letters that were usually associated with the further words of "health" and "extended life" and therefore, had a positive reputation. However, for me, the P and the E put together was the worst possible combination. Every time they were mentioned, I would sigh in displeasure, my heart rate would increase and I would feel lightheaded. After all, in my mind, PE = exercise and exercise = torture! #Quote by Adele Rose
Pain quotes by Veronica Roth
#5. Life is full of pain', I had told Akos, trying to draw him back from depression. 'Your capacity for bearing it is greater than you believe.' And I had been right. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Pain quotes by Lois McMaster Bujold
#6. (Watching her) was a little like watching water lilies; rather more like smelling a dinner he was not allowed to eat. Was it possible to be starved for so long as to forget the taste of food, for the pangs of hunger to burn out like ash? It seemed so. But both the pleasure and the pain were his heart's secret, here. He was put in mind, suddenly, of the soil at the edge of a recovering blight; the weedy bedraggled look of it, unlovely yet hopeful. Blight was a numb gray thing, without sensation. Did the return of green life hurt? Odd thought. #Quote by Lois McMaster Bujold
Pain quotes by Brendan Cowell
#7. But those eyes, those big green eyes of hers, they bore right into me with crippling force. She wanted it too much; the space Tommy had left in her, she wanted me to fill it. And I couldn't. She looked too young and too scared. almost like she didn't really want it either, she just needed it. I couldn't stick it in and fuck her pain away. I did not know how to fuck at all, let alone as therapy. #Quote by Brendan Cowell
Pain quotes by Melanie Joy
#8. Becoming aware of the intense suffering of billions of animals, and of our own participation in that suffering, can bring up painful emotions: sorrow and grief for the animals; anger at the injustice and deception of the system; despair at the enormity of the problem; fear that trusted authorities and institutions are, in fact, untrustworthy; and guilt for having contributed to the problem. Bearing witness means choosing to suffer. Indeed, empathy is literally 'feeling with.' Choosing to suffer is particularly difficult in a culture that is addicted to comfort
a culture that teaches that pain should be avoided whenever possible and that ignorance is bliss. We can reduce our resistance to witnessing by valuing authenticity over personal pleasure, and integration over ignorance. #Quote by Melanie Joy
Pain quotes by Project Itoh
#9. The instant the old folks had entered their codes and the Harmony program had begun to sing, suicide disappeared from human society. Nearly all battles ceased. The individual was no longer a unit. The entire social system was the unit. By losing its sense of self and self-awareness, society had been freed from the pain it suffered because its systems had relied on imperfect humans, arriving for the first time at a perfect bliss. I am a part of the system, as you are part of the system. No one felt any pain about that any longer. There was no "me" to feel pain. I had been replaced by a single... #Quote by Project Itoh
Pain quotes by Jane Hawking
#10. Live in the present, he said, and trust in God through darkness, pain and fear. Then, as he quoted the biblical passage from Corinthians "God will not suffer you to be tested more than you are able #Quote by Jane Hawking
Pain quotes by Christiane Northrup
#11. I want you to know that it is pleasure, not pain, that is your birthright. #Quote by Christiane Northrup
Pain quotes by John Keats

Pain quotes by Veronica Rossi
#13. Pain is such a pain, you know? It's very taxing. #Quote by Veronica Rossi
Pain quotes by Kim Stanley Robinson
#14. Why read on? Why pick up their book from the far wall where it has been thrown away in disgust and pain, and read on? Why submit to such cruelty, such bad karma, such bad plotting? The reason is simple: these things happened. #Quote by Kim Stanley Robinson
Pain quotes by Tony Parsons
#15. Sometimes the fog in his eyes would clear, that fog caused by the pain and the killers of pain, and when it cleared, I saw regret and fear in those eyes swimming with tears and I was convinced that this was it, this was the end, this was surely the end. #Quote by Tony Parsons
Pain quotes by Daniel N. Robinson
#16. It is only in the philosophy of the seminar room that serious doubts are raised as to weather or not dogs and cats and other animals have consciousness. We all know how aware they are of their surroundings... and of us... they leave no doubt when they are in pain... #Quote by Daniel N. Robinson
Pain quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#17. A journey will have pain and failure. It is not only the steps forward that we must accept. It is the stumbles. The trials. The knowledge that we will fail. That we will hurt those around us.
But if we stop, if we accept the person we are when we fail, the journey ends. That failure becomes our destination. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Pain quotes by Rachael Maddox
#18. biological, instinctual, unconscious response to threat or violation. And it can actually be the very thing that saves your life. In freezing, the human body enters an altered state in which little to no pain is experienced. #Quote by Rachael Maddox
Pain quotes by Yiyun Li
#19. People who have not experienced a suicidal urge miss a crucial point. It is not that one wants to end one's life, but that the only way to end the pain - that eternal fight against one's melodrama so that it does not transgress - is to wipe out the body. I distrust judgments - Mann's or anyone's - on suicide. They are, in the end, judgments on feelings. #Quote by Yiyun Li
Pain quotes by Enid Bagnold
#20. Isn't the fear of pain next brother to pain itself? #Quote by Enid Bagnold
Pain quotes by John Gwynne
#21. You cannot be truly brave unless you feel truly afraid. That's what courage is. Doing it anyway, even though you're scared. Sorry, terrified. And you did. You chose to fight. To step into that furnace of blood and madness and pain, and fight. Despite your fear #Quote by John Gwynne
Pain quotes by Barbara Vine
#22. His books distracted him for a while. They were like the aspirins you take when you've got a headache. They kill the pain for two hours and then it comes back. #Quote by Barbara Vine
Pain quotes by Pirkei Avot
#23. Compassion is the feeling of sympathy which the pain of one being awakens in another; and the higher and more human the beings are, the more keenly attuned they are to re-echo the note of suffering, which, like a voice from heaven, penetrates the heart, bringing all creatures a proof of their kinship in the universal God. And as for man, whose function it is to show respect and love for God's universe and all its creatures, his heart has been created so tender that it feels with the whole organic world ... mourning even for fading flowers; so that, if nothing else, the very nature of his heart must teach him that he is required above everything to fe the brother of all beings, and to recognize the claim of all beings to his love and his beneficence.
Horeb, Chapter 17, Verse 125 #Quote by Pirkei Avot
Pain quotes by Richard Paul Evans
#24. There is one day that has brought me unspeakable pain, & the effects of that day continue to cover & erode my world like rust. I suspect that someday the rust will eat through the joists & posts of my life & I will topple, literally as well as figuratively. #Quote by Richard Paul Evans
Pain quotes by Max Payne -Retribution
#25. they say that only time can heal the pain. but still hurts like yesterday #Quote by Max Payne -Retribution
Pain quotes by Nyrae Dawn
#26. it's hard giving out love to people who shove it back in your face. That's not what love's supposed to be about. No, it's not perfect and people get hurt, but it's a give and take. And it should be comfort, not pain. #Quote by Nyrae Dawn
Pain quotes by Phindiwe Nkosi
#27. I don't know what more to say ... I did not follow up in the days to come. I did not, I did, I should, I could ... Just like that, I let that entire ordeal go. #Quote by Phindiwe Nkosi
Pain quotes by Adrienne Rich
#28. They can rule the world while they can persuade us our pain belongs in some order is death by famine worse than death by suicide, than a life of famine and suicide? #Quote by Adrienne Rich
Pain quotes by Jaron Lanier
#29. Making information free is survivable so long as only limited numbers of people are disenfranchised. As much as it pains me to say so, we can survive if we only destroy the middle classes of musicians, journalists, and photographers. What is not survivable is the additional destruction of the middle classes in transportation, manufacturing, energy, office work, education, and health care. And all that destruction will come surely enough if the dominant idea of an information economy isn't improved. #Quote by Jaron Lanier
Pain quotes by Quetzal
#30. I caught a red bird once,
I fell in love with her,
Took the red bird home with me,
I saw her eyes, at saw my peace,
I love the red bird much,
I cut her wings, I wanted the bird to stay,
I made a cage for her,
No wings, and trapped, the red bird cried,
I saw her eyes in pain; it broke my heart to see,
I was the one to blame, for the red bird's pain,
It grew back its wings, no longer in the cage,
She looked at me once more, spread its wings and left,
I loved that red bird still; I wish she was with me
But now I know for sure , her pain was caused by me. #Quote by Quetzal
Pain quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#31. The heavy armor becomes the light dress of childhood; the pain is brief, the joy unending. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Pain quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#32. It feels even better to be treated fairly. #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Pain quotes by Salman Rushdie

Pain quotes by John Gay
#34. Who hath not heard the rich complain Of surfeits, and corporeal pain? He barr'd from every use of wealth, Envies the ploughman's strength and health. #Quote by John Gay
Pain quotes by Patricia Cornwell
#35. I was reminded of the old pain, a pain once so intense it was physical. #Quote by Patricia Cornwell
Pain quotes by Fulton J. Sheen
#36. In moments when fever, agony, and pain make it hard to pray, the suggestion of prayer that comes from merely holding the rosary - or better still, from caressing the Crucifix at the end of it - is tremendous! #Quote by Fulton J. Sheen
Pain quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#37. May the broken hearted be healed. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Pain quotes by Eric Greitens
#38. If people can live through genocide and retain compassion, if they can take strength in pain, if they are able, still, to laugh, then certainly we can learn something from them. #Quote by Eric Greitens
Pain quotes by Robin Roe

Pain quotes by Madeleine L'Engle
#41. Compassion means to suffer with, but it doesn't mean to get lost in the suffering, so that it becomes exclusively one's own. I tend to do this, to replace the person for whom I am feeling compassion with myself. #Quote by Madeleine L'Engle
Pain quotes by Bram Stoker
#42. You must not die. You must not die by any hand, but least of all your own. Until the other, who has fouled your sweet life, is true dead you must not die. For if he is still with the quick Undead, your death would make you even as he is. No, you must live! You must struggle and strive to live, though death would seem a boon unspeakable. You must fight Death himself, though he come to you in pain or in joy. By the day, or the night, in safety or in peril! On your living soul I charge you that you do not die. Nay, nor think of death, till this great evil be past. #Quote by Bram Stoker
Pain quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#43. It is my bad luck that this has happened to me.' No, you should rather say: 'It is my good luck that, although this has happened to me, I can bear it without pain, neither crushed by the present not fearful of the future.' Because such a thing could have happened to any man, but not every man could have borne it without pain. So why see more misfortune in the event than good fortune in your ability to bear it? #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Pain quotes by Alden Bell
#44. There is no pain - just travel.
On her knees, she stays still as a supplicant ready for communion. It is very quiet. All of a sudden there is no hurry. There will be time for everything. For the breezes that blow and for the rainwater drying in the gutters, for Maury to find a place of safety in the world, for Malcolm to come back from the dead and ask her about birds and jets. For the big things too, things like beauty and vengeance and honor and righteousness and the grace of God and the slow spilling of the earth from day to night and back to day again.
It is spread out before her, compressed into one single moment. She will be able to see it all -- if she can keep her sleepy eyes open.
It's like a dream where she is. Like a dream where you find yourself underwater and you are panicked for a moment until you realize you no longer need to breathe, and you can stay under the surface forever.
She feels her body falling sideways to the ground. It happens slow - and she expects a crash that never comes because her mind is jumping and it doesn't know which way is up anymore, like the moon above her and the fish below her and her in between floating, like on the surface of the river, floating between sea and sky, the world all skin, all meniscus, and she a part of it too.
Moses Todd told her if you lean over the rail at Niagara Falls it takes your breath away, like turning yourself inside out -- and Lee the hunter told her that one time people used to stu #Quote by Alden Bell
Pain quotes by Brandon Bays
#45. From Freedom is:
"True forgiveness is one of the most healing relasing, and freeing gifts we give to ourselves."

"You can't fake it (forgivenss). It has to come from an open heart. It has to be real. Otherwise it is pointless. In order to fruly forgive, you must be willing to open your heart and face and release the pain there."
"It requires humility. It requites us to give up our rightenous indignation, get off our soapbox, let go of blame, and le go of th pride of being right. It means we have to be willing to drop our victim story, soften our stance, and if necessary, let our heart be broken wide open." Brandon Bays Chapter 8 on forgiveness. #Quote by Brandon Bays
Pain quotes by Brene Brown
#46. What I've learned through my work and what I heard that night in Newtown makes one thing clear: Not enough of us know how to sit in pain with others. Worse, our discomfort shows up in ways that can hurt people and reinforce their isolation. I have started to believe that crying with strangers in person could save the world. #Quote by Brene Brown
Pain quotes by Peter Singer
#47. Pain is pain, and the importance of preventing unnecessary pain and suffering does not diminish because the being that suffers is not a member of our own species. #Quote by Peter Singer
Pain quotes by Carlos Aleman
#48. I see a lot of love in your heart. Despite the pain it causes. Love is like a stubborn disease. There's no way to cure it. #Quote by Carlos Aleman

#50. Nature gives us roses and viruses, earthquakes and moonlight, while being totally indifferent to our joys and pain. #Quote by Marty Rubin
Pain quotes by James P. Hoffa
#51. Wage theft, worker rights and workplace discrimination should not be swept under the rug. The United States cannot have a functional economy where all the gains go to the corporate class while all the pain goes to regular workers. #Quote by James P. Hoffa
Pain quotes by John Marsden
#52. All these words, words like 'evil' and 'vicious', they meant nothing to Nature. Yes, evil was a human invention. #Quote by John Marsden
Pain quotes by Philip K. Dick
#53. Masochism is more widespread than we realize because it takes an attenuated form. The basic dynamism is as follows: a human being sees something bad which is coming as inevitable. There is no way he can halt the process; he is helpess. This sense of helplessness generates a need to gain some control over the impending pain -- any kind of control will do. This makes sense; the subjective feeling of helplessness is more painful than the impending misery. So the person seizes control over the situation in the only way open to him: he connives to bring on the impending misery; he hastens it. This activity on his part promotes the false impression that he enjoys pain. Not so. It is simply that he cannot any longer endure the helplessness or the supposed helplessness. But in the process of gaining control over the inevitable misery he becomes, automatically, anhedonic. Anhedonia sets in stealthily. Over the years it takes control of him. For example, he learns to defer gratification; this is a step in the dismal process of anhedonia. In learning to defer he gratification he experiences a sense of self-mastery; he has become stoic, disciplined; he does not give way to impulse. He has "control". Control over himself in terms of his impulses and control over the external situation. He is a controlled and controlling person. Pretty soon he has branched out and is controlling other people, as part of the situation. He becomes a manipulator. Of course, he is not conciousily aware of this #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Pain quotes by Zora Neale Hurston
#54. At the bottom in the gut of jazz if you listen closely you can hear - no matter how complexly, obliquely, mysteriously stylized - somebody talking, crying, growling, singing, farting, praying, stomping, voicing in all those modes through which our bodies communicate some tale about how it feels to be here on earth or leaving, or about the sweet pain of hanging on between the coming and going. #Quote by Zora Neale Hurston
Pain quotes by Kemi Sogunle
#55. No one can hurt you except you give them the power to do so and choose to accept it. #Quote by Kemi Sogunle
Pain quotes by Shusaku Endo
#56. Trample! It was to be trampled on by men that I was born into this world. It was to share men's pain that I carried my cross. #Quote by Shusaku Endo
Pain quotes by Davin Turney
#57. It is always the one closest to you that hurts you the most. #Quote by Davin Turney
Pain quotes by Marianne Williamson
#58. Think of one person who you are tempted for any reason to withhold love from, and pray for their happiness. In that moment your pain will stop. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Pain quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#59. When we have insight into our inner world and what brings us happiness, then wordlessly, intuitively, we understand others. As though there were no longer a barrier defining the boundaries of our caring, we can feel close to others' experience of life. We see that when we are angry, there is an element of pain in the anger that is not different from the pain that others feel when they are angry. When we feel love, there is a distinct and special joy in that feeling. We come to know that this is the nature of love itself, and that other beings filled with love experience this same joy. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Pain quotes by Loretta Chase
#60. Jessica, you are a pain in the arse, do you know that? If I were not so immensely fond of you, I should throw you out the window."
She wrapped her arms about his waist and laid her head against his chest. "Not merely 'fond,' but 'immensely fond.' Oh Dain, I do believe I shall swoon."
"Not now," he said crossly. "I haven't time to pick you up. #Quote by Loretta Chase
Pain quotes by Azar Nafisi
#61. Those who are close to us, when they die, divide our world. There is the world of the living, which we finally, in one way or another, succumb to, and then there is the domain of the dead that, like an imaginary friend (or foe) or a secret concubine, constantly beckons, reminding us of our loss. What is memory but a ghost that lurks at the corners of the mind, interrupting our normal course of life, disrupting our sleep in order to remind us of some acute pain or pleasure, something silenced or ignored? We miss not only their presence, or how they felt about us, but ultimately how they allowed us to feel about ourselves or them. (prologue) #Quote by Azar Nafisi
Pain quotes by Emile M. Cioran
#62. Every word affords me pain. Yet how sweet it would be if I could hear what the flowers have to say about death! #Quote by Emile M. Cioran
Pain quotes by Jennifer DuBois
#63. Forgiveness was work, Eduardo told victims' families
but so, then, was love, and deciding what was right, and defending it. Recusing yourself from judgment so you won't be tainted by the aggressor's sin is the same as turning away from empathy so you won't be touched by the victim's pain. #Quote by Jennifer DuBois
Pain quotes by Neal A. Maxwell
#64. Our goals should stretch us bit by bit. So often when we think we have encountered a ceiling, it is really a psychological or experimental barrier that we have built ourselves. We built it and we can remove it. Just as correct principles, when applied, carry their own witness that they are true, so do correct personal improvement programs. But we must not expect personal improvement without pain or some 'remodeling.' We can't expect to have the thrills of revealed religion without the theology. We cannot expect to have the soul stretching without Christian service. #Quote by Neal A. Maxwell
Pain quotes by Tyler Mcmahon
#65. There will be pain on everyone's part. We will cause hurt, and we will suffer, and in the end, we'll be no better for it #Quote by Tyler Mcmahon
Pain quotes by LeAnn Rimes
#66. There's no way to explain, but all the pleasure is worth all the pain. #Quote by LeAnn Rimes
Pain quotes by Stephen Levine
#67. Open yourself to discomfort. Meet it with mercy, not fear. Recognize that when our pain most calls for our embrace, we are often the least present. Soften, enter, and explore, and continue softening to make room for your life. #Quote by Stephen Levine
Pain quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#68. Lydia arched a chiding brow at him. "My father didn't tell me anything and I'm still angry at him for that. But I remembered you. Even though I didn't understand it, I felt you with me constantly. And if that wasn't enough…" She took his hand and placed it on her stomach so he could feel the slight swelling there. "You left me with a very special gift."
The news slammed into him harder than one of Noir's blows. She was pregnant?
With his child.
Unimaginable joy ripped through him as he felt the slightest fluttering of his son or daughter moving inside her.
But that only solidified his resolve. "You won't be safe if I leave."
She cupped his now healed face in her hands. "No one ever is, Seth. No matter how hard we try. No matter how much we plan and prepare. There will always be an enemy at the door and a storm trying to knock us down. Life's not about security. It's about picking up the pieces after it's all over and carrying on. We can choose to be cowards who fear letting someone inside us, and do that alone. Or we can choose to be brave and let someone stand by our side and help us. I'm not a coward. I never have been. And there is nowhere else I plan to be, except beside you. Forever. Be it on earth, or here in this hellhole if that's what it takes. I will always be with you."
In that moment, he realized he didn't need his swallow to fly him away from pain.
All he needed was her.
And she was right. It took much more courage to lay h #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Pain quotes by Laarni Venus Marie
#69. Somewhere, somehow, maybe I can find someone who can make my heart beat again.. For everyday that I pine for your love, and for every single time you reject me, I start to die deep inside.. That throbbing pain has slowly turned into numbing emptiness.. #Quote by Laarni Venus Marie
Pain quotes by Jerry Bruckheimer
#70. People want to leave their homes but they can't go on vacation as much as they used to. So, getting out of the house and seeing a good movie helps them to alleviate some of the pain that's going on in their life. #Quote by Jerry Bruckheimer
Pain quotes by Nnedi Okorafor
#71. Then I noticed it. Red and oval-shaped with a white oval in the center, like the giant eye of a jinni. It sizzled and hissed, the white part expanding, moving closer. It horrified me to my very core. Must get out of here! I thought. Now! It sees me! But I didn't know how to move. Move with what? I had no body. The red was bitter venom. The white was like the sun's worst heat. I started screaming and crying again. Then I was opening my eyes to a cup of water. Everyone's face broke into a smile. "Oh, praise Ani," the Ada said. I felt the pain and jumped, about to get up and run. I had to run. From that eye. I was so mixed up that for a moment, I was sure that what I'd just seen was causing the pain. "Don't #Quote by Nnedi Okorafor

Pain quotes by Harper Sloan
#73. I don't think I would have survived that had you not been there. I told you before that your my light, my Sunshine, and baby, if it hadn't been for you shining that light on me today, I wouldn't have escaped that pain. #Quote by Harper Sloan
Pain quotes by E.D.E.N. Southworth
#74. Sarcastic and merciless one, you glory in the pain you give! #Quote by E.D.E.N. Southworth
Pain quotes by John Zakour
#75. I remembered the last time I put this thing into my eye it was more painful than watching old political speeches while listening to the "Macarena" and having a root canal performed by an angry, clumsy chimp. #Quote by John Zakour
Pain quotes by Audre Lorde
#76. When you are a member of an out-group, and you challenge others with whom you share this outsider position to examine some aspect of their lives that distorts differences between you, then there can be a great deal of pain. #Quote by Audre Lorde
Pain quotes by Jennifer Elisabeth
#77. I'm going inside of myself and never coming out. #Quote by Jennifer Elisabeth
Pain quotes by Matt Haig
#78. (Y)ou couldn't do mathematics with emotions. In protecting yourself from hurt you could create a new, subtler type of pain. It is a dilemma. #Quote by Matt Haig
Pain quotes by J.D. Netto
#79. Pain comes with the decision of choosing what I have to offer now, but this same pain is needed to shape you for the greater destiny ahead. #Quote by J.D. Netto
Pain quotes by Rita Zahara
#80. Sometimes you need to be terrified to your bones, in order for you to find your way to safety. Pain somewhat has this ability to push you beyond your comfort zone so that you can come back even stronger. To me, obstacles are not a hindrance but as stepping stones to success. #Quote by Rita Zahara
Pain quotes by Caroline B. Cooney
#81. Stephen had just come from a class discussion in which several students believed that the right cup of herbal tea would save them from pain and sorrow. Well acquainted with pain and sorrow, Stephen did not contribute to the discussion. He merely crossed these idiots off his list of possible friends. #Quote by Caroline B. Cooney
Pain quotes by Michele Lena Lucy
#82. Enraged
I throw myself to the ground and I scream,
my best friend is gone, this world is so mean.
I cry as I pound my fists on his grass,
I'm very upset that our time went so fast.
My heart beats faster than ever before,
my tears unstoppable, I'm hurt to the core.
There are no words people can say,
that will ease my excruciating pain.
I don't understand why you had to go.
You leaving me, we just didn't know.
I'll make it somehow, I'll start anew.
But, there is no way I can replace you.
I struggle to make it through each day,
and retain my sanity in this foggy haze.
The sadness and pain that I display,
is because God decided to take you away. #Quote by Michele Lena Lucy
Pain quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#83. God designed love to be massive enough to live in pain and subdue pain's attributes for phenomenal growth. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Pain quotes by Shiv Kumar Batalvi
#84. In the garden of life,
Grows a sapling of pain,
The deer of songs nibbles at it.
The winds of seperation
Blow through the night,
A few leaves drop.
A few leaves drop,
Mother, they drop,
And sounds stir in the garden.
If a few birds of breath
Should fly away,
The deer of songs is afraid.
But the birds of breath
Will surely fly,
Nothing can hold them back.
Through the night
In every direction
They fly away. #Quote by Shiv Kumar Batalvi
Pain quotes by Gabrielle Zevin
#85. Lights, bright enough to dilate her eyes. Horns, flaccid and come too late. Metal crumpling like tissue. The body was not in pain but only because the body was gone, elsewhere. Yes, Daniel thinks just after impact but before death, like that. The passage hadn't been as bad as he had thought. #Quote by Gabrielle Zevin
Pain quotes by Tahereh Mafi
#86. I promise myself then, in that moment, that I will hold him forever, just like this, until all the pain and torture and suffering is gone, until he's given a chance to live the kind of life where no one can wound him this deeply ever again. #Quote by Tahereh Mafi
Pain quotes by William P. Young
#87. City and country
each has its own beauty and its own pain. Some of the smallness of small towns
cattiness, everybody knowing everybody's business
that can be challenging. And cities can be challenging, because no one can connect except electronically. #Quote by William P. Young
Pain quotes by James Dashner
#88. A small hole in his shirt revealed a gooey red blob right in the meaty part above his armpit, blood pouring from the wound. It hurt. It hurt bad. If he'd thought his headache downstairs had been tough, this was like three or four of those, all smashed into a coil of pain right there in his shoulder. And spreading through the rest of his body.
Newt was at his side, looking down with worried eyes.
"He shot me." It just came out, a new number one on the list of the dumbest things he'd ever said. The pain, like living metal staples running through his insides, pricking and scratching with their little sharp points. He felt his mind going dark for the second time that day. #Quote by James Dashner
Pain quotes by Sarah MacLean
#89. They had lied, those who had extolled the virtues of love - its pleasures, its sublimity - those who had told her that it was beautiful and worthwhile.
There was nothing beautiful about it.
It was awful. #Quote by Sarah MacLean
Pain quotes by Amy Lowell
#90. The Wheel of the Sun"

I beg you
Hide your face from me.
Draw the tissue of your head-gear
Over your eyes.
For I am blinded by your beauty,
And my heart is strained,
And aches,
Before you.

In the street,
You spread a brightness where you walk,
And I see your lifting silks
And rejoice;
But I cannot look up to your face.
You melt my strength,
And set my knees to trembling.

Shadow yourself that I may love you,
For now it is too great a pain. #Quote by Amy Lowell
Pain quotes by T. S. Eliot
#91. Liberty is a different kind of pain from prison. #Quote by T. S. Eliot
Pain quotes by Ken Goldstein
#92. Pain has an odd way of expressing itself in the acts of business. No matter how many setbacks a leader might experience, there always seems to be a new opaque watermark of endurance testing, invisibly triggered for erratic combustion in each compounding decision. Every CEO in the world knows this, yet few have the good sense to walk away from the table when their cards are hot. Why win in Act Two when a comeback in Act Three gives you a longer biography? Ego is not so much about immortality as it is about demonstrating stately resistance to nightmarish attacks in public forums. Any good smack to the head is a continuity wake up call, or at least another invitation to be interviewed by Charlie Rose. #Quote by Ken Goldstein
Pain quotes by Tony Rabig
#93. When it came to time travel, science and science fiction and fantasy had flip-flopped. Nobody was going to create a machine that traveled to the future or the past. Time machines might be accepted in science fiction as an enabling device to get the story moving, but they're like faster-than-light space ships-- neither one is going to happen any time soon, not with any technology we know how to implement.
The guys who had it figured were the fantasists, Dennis. The Finneys and the Mathesons and the Ellisons and the Serlings. No machines and no advanced physics, at least not most of the time. Just an overpowering desire. Just need and longing and pain and regret and the right talisman or the right surroundings. Put the right person in the right place, and perhaps with the right objects, and the potential for time travel is there. #Quote by Tony Rabig
Pain quotes by Jaggi Vasudev
#94. In terms of the real quality of a human being, only when suffering comes, when pain comes, does a man stand up as a human being. You can see great human beings surface only when the society is really suffering. When India was under the oppression of British rulers, how many wonderful people stood up? Where are they now? They have just fallen back into their comforts, that's all. All those Ghandis, Patels, Tilaks are still there, but they're dormant. When pain came, they all became alive. They left everything behind and stood up as giants. Where are they now? This is the human misfortune that still there's not enough intelligence in the world that human beings will rise to their peaks when everything is well. They wait for calamities. #Quote by Jaggi Vasudev
Pain quotes by Auliq Ice
#95. Mistakes and errors, destinations and journeys are all the same and are paid with pain. #Quote by Auliq Ice
Pain quotes by Frances Sargent Osgood
#96. No grief so soft, no pain so sweet, as love's delicious melancholy. #Quote by Frances Sargent Osgood
Pain quotes by Craig Johnson
#97. Comforting to know that we're the species that feels the most pain. #Quote by Craig Johnson
Pain quotes by Kristine Carlson
#98. All pain in life comes from wishing things were different than they are. Conversely, peace and happiness must come from accepting life as it is and breaking through the barriers of illusion to do so ... All things that we label good or bad often hold in them surprises if we stay open. Each of us has choice in how we interpret life's events and in this way we are each responsible for our own reality. #Quote by Kristine Carlson
Pain quotes by Joel Houston
#99. When we ignore the prostituted child, we actually lend our hand to their abuse. When we ignore the widow and the orphan in their distress, we actually add to their pain. When we ignore the slave who remains captive, it's us who is entrapping them. When we forget the refugee, it's actually us who is displacing them. When we choose not to help the poor and the needy, we actually rob them. Perhaps the only fair thing to say is that when we forsake the lives of others, we actually forsake our own. #Quote by Joel Houston
Pain quotes by Paramahansa Yogananda
#100. In your heart must well that sympathy which soothes away all pains from the hearts of others. #Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda
Pain quotes by Diana Killian
#101. But what? But it was just so much easier to deal with the old pain by ignoring it? Forgetting it? Andy's presence meant having to actively work at forgiving him, and that was hard. Forgetting was much easier than forgiving
forgiving was an on-going process that had to continue past the dramatic declarations of apology and absolution. #Quote by Diana Killian
Pain quotes by Ellen Renner
#102. She wanted to cry because she had hit Tobias when he was trying to be kind. She wanted to cry for herself. Most of all she wanted to cry for her father. But the pain was too fierce for tears. It burnt them to ash. #Quote by Ellen Renner
Pain quotes by Craig Froman
#103. Some say the ocean roars,
I hear it ever weeping.
Weep, ocean, weep for those gone before.
Weep, O sea, for the open graves that fill your shore. #Quote by Craig Froman
Pain quotes by Hilary Mantel
#104. But I had to think to myself that this was normal, because that was the attitude. I was 19 when I went to see my doctor and I was told it was all in the mind.
[Author Hilary Mantel on being told her endometriosis was imagined pain, From Oct 2009 Daily Mail interview] #Quote by Hilary Mantel
Pain quotes by Bianca Sommerland
#105. Some people can't see love beyond the shroud of pain and suffering, but that's no big surprise. In dire circumstances flowers seem stupid and boxes of chocolates a waste and you can't have 'true' love without those! #Quote by Bianca Sommerland
Pain quotes by Tammy Faith
#106. Her bright green eyes pop against the smudged black mascara. There's so much pain hidden inside those liquid pools, and I want to unravel her.
I'd like to soften up her edges till they're so blurry I'm the only thing she can focus on, the only thing she can see. I need to light a fire where her heart has been left cold and hardened, rearranging her broken pieces around mine in a way I can make them fit together. I want to crawl inside of her so deep she can't use me like she's used to and then get rid of me and forget we happened. #Quote by Tammy Faith
Pain quotes by Amit Ray
#107. When we are aware about our body's sensations, we can release physical pain, tensions or stress through slow movements. #Quote by Amit Ray
Pain quotes by Sharon Bolton
#108. Every time Tom was tempted to turn back, he made himself think of his brother. Joe, who he sometimes thought had been sent to earth to make his life miserable, who had been a complete pain from the day he was born, who was always getting his own way and who he fantasized about killing at least once a week. Joe, who he really didn't think he could live the rest of his life without. #Quote by Sharon Bolton
Pain quotes by William C. Brown
#109. Only eliminating all pains in the ass the real mild and gentle man can live in peace. #Quote by William C. Brown
Pain quotes by M.S. Willis
#110. She was a slave to his lust, while he was a slave to her pain. #Quote by M.S. Willis
Pain quotes by Bruce Lee
#111. Forget about winning and losing; forget about pride and pain. Let your opponent graze your skin and you smash into his flesh; let him smash into your flesh and you fracture his bones; let him fracture your bones and you take his life! Do not be concerned with escaping safely- lay your life before him!! #Quote by Bruce Lee
Pain quotes by Amit Ray
#112. Enlightenment is transcending the limits of the Selfish gene. It is mastering the pain, pleasure and reward circuits of the brain by radiating peace, love and harmony from every cell of the body.* #Quote by Amit Ray
Pain quotes by Min Zhou
#113. We have received a dog with serious eye problems and a skin disease in hopeless stage. The person who brought it here demanded we cure it for free and refused the idea of euthanasia to end its pain. #Quote by Min Zhou
Pain quotes by Laarni Venus Marie Giango
#114. I don't hate you. I could never do that. It isn't your fault at all that I'm in-love with you. And it is not your fault either that you like me; but you just don't like me enough. #Quote by Laarni Venus Marie Giango
Pain quotes by Michael Jordan
#115. Maybe it's my own fault. Maybe I led you to believe it was easy when it wasn't. Maybe I made you think my highlights started at the free throw line, and not in the gym. Maybe I made you think that every shot I took was a game winner. That my game was built on flash, and not fire. Maybe it's my fault that you didn't see that failure gave me strength; that my pain was my motivation. Maybe I led you to believe that basketball was a God given gift, and not something I worked for every single day of my life. Maybe I destroyed the game. Or maybe you're just making excuses. #Quote by Michael Jordan
Pain quotes by Kira Harp
#116. ...Seth felt almost stupid. His litany of pain, the little pin-pricks and bigger hits that had brought him to this place seemed petty. But he could feel the blackness waiting for him. And the small stuff all built one on another until he couldn't breathe for the weight of it. Stupid didn't mean it wasn't real. #Quote by Kira Harp
Pain quotes by Erika Johansen
#117. Sometime in the last forty-eight hours, Lily had discovered the great secret of pain: it thrived on the unknown, on the knowledge that there was a greater pain out there, something more excruciating that might yet be breached. The body was constantly waiting. When you took away the uncertainty, when you controlled the pain yourself, it was definitely easier to bear,... #Quote by Erika Johansen
Pain quotes by Harper Sloan
#118. After making sure I have everything, I waddle over to the sidewalk, my flip-flops slapping loudly against the pavement. Seeing Sway in the window has me lifting my arm and waving wildly. The second I go to put my arm down, I feel this tremendous pain in my stomach. Sway cocks his head at me, clearly puzzled with my actions. I look down from his eyes and try to figure out what just happened.

Sway bursts through the door to his salon about the same time that I realize that my water just broke. Of all places to have my water break, it's the damn golden sidewalk. I love this sidewalk. Now all I'm going to think about is my pregnancy water leaking out of my vagina.

"Sway! My vagina broke the happiness!" I cry when he runs over. He grabs the food and my purse before helping me walk the few steps left to take me inside Corps Security. "Sway!" I pant. "Are you listening to me? My vagina broke it! #Quote by Harper Sloan
Pain quotes by Stasi Eldredge
#119. Christianity is not a promise to enjoy a life without pain nor to be given a shortcut through it. It is a promise that pain, sorrow, sin - ours and others' - will not swallow us, destroy us, define us, or have the final word. Jesus has won the victory. And in him so have we. #Quote by Stasi Eldredge
Pain quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#120. Hatred does not help us alleviate our pain even in the slightest. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Pain quotes by Pat Barker
#121. Everything stinks: creosote, bleach, disinfectant, soil, blood, gangrene.
The military authorities say uniforms must be preserved at all costs, but that means manhandling patients who are in agony. Cut them off, says Sister Byrd, and she's the voice of authority here, in the Salle d'Attente, not some gold-braid-encrusted crustacean miles away from blood and pain, so cut they do, snip, snip, snip, snip, as close to the skin as they dare.
On either side of Paul as he cuts are two long rows of feet: yellow, strong, calloused, scarred where blisters have formed and burst repeatedly. Since August they've done a lot of marching, these feet, and all their marching has brought them to this one place. #Quote by Pat Barker
Pain quotes by Colleen Hoover
#122. You told me once that too much good in a person's life will stunt their growth. You said pain is necessary, because in order for a person to succeed, they must first learn to conquer adversity. And that's what you do ... you deliver adversity where you see fit. #Quote by Colleen Hoover
Pain quotes by Kazuya Minekura
#123. With a strength I can be proud of, I live only for myself, and only die for myself. I'll never die for someone, cause I know the pain of who remains alive, this is my pride. #Quote by Kazuya Minekura
Pain quotes by Madeleine L'Engle
#124. Poetry, at least the kind I write, is written out of immediate need; it is written out of pain, joy, and experience too great to be borne until it is ordered into words. And then it is written to be shared. #Quote by Madeleine L'Engle
Pain quotes by Calista Fox
#125. Swear you'll come back." More tears poled. Pain lanced through me. "You know I will," he said with conviction. #Quote by Calista Fox
Pain quotes by David Benatar
#126. It is not the case that one can create new people on the assumption that if they are not pleased to have come into existence they can simply kill themselves. Once somebody has come into existence and attachments with that person have been formed, suicide can cause the kind of pain that makes the pain of childlessness mild by comparison. Somebody contemplating suicide knows (or should know) this. This places an important obstacle in the way of suicide. One's life may be bad, but one must consider what affect ending it would have on one's family and friends. There will be times when life has become so bad that it is unreasonable for the interests of the loved ones in having the person alive to outweigh that person's interests in ceasing to exist. When this is true will depend in part on particular features of the person for whom continued life is a burden. Different people are able to bear different magnitudes of burden. It may even be indecent for family members to expect that person to continue living. On other occasions one's life may be bad but not so bad as to warrant killing oneself and thereby making the lives of one's family and friends still much worse than they already are. #Quote by David Benatar
Pain quotes by Regina Taylor
#127. I handle my emotional pain by changing my mind-set. Exercising can exorcise emotional pain. Prayer and meditation. Visualization. Being able to talk about it by opening yourself to loved ones or a professional. #Quote by Regina Taylor
Pain quotes by Erin Pavlina
#128. When you are in the ether you remember that you are a part of consciousness and that you are being sent out into the world to experience, learn, and grow. You know that physical life is temporary, and that the pain and adversity you face as a physical being is but a moment in your existence. Why do people choose to enter a life that is filled with pain and torment? Because from the perspective of the ether, any pain or adversity is but a blip of discomfort in the grand scheme of things. It's like asking if you are willing to suffer a paper cut in order to gain vast wisdom and knowledge and tremendous personal growth. When we incarnate, we forget that, so yeah, it can be extremely difficult to understand why horrible things happen to you and even more disconcerting to think you chose for it to happen! This is why I feel it is so important to remember where we came from. When you remember that this life is temporary and that your goal is growth, it can make even the most horrible conditions bearable. #Quote by Erin Pavlina
Pain quotes by Gayle Forman
#129. I wait for the fist of devestation, the collapse of a year's worth of hopes, the roar of sadness. And I do feel it. The pain of losing him. Or the idea of him. But along with that pain is something else, something quiet at first, so I have to strain for it. but when I do, I hear the sound of a door quietly clicking shut. And then the most amazing thing happens: The night is calm, but I feel a rush of wind, as if a thousand other doors have just simultaneously flung open.
I give one last glance towards Willem. Then I turn to Wolfgang. "Finished," I say.
But I suspect the opposite is true. That really, I'm just beginning. #Quote by Gayle Forman
Pain quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#130. Moreover, I have boundary issues with men. Or maybe that's not fair to say. To have issues with boundaries, one must have boundaries in the first place, right? But I disappear into
the person I love. I am the permeable membrane. If I love you, you can have everything. You can have my time, my devotion, my ass, my money, my family, my dog, my dog's money, my
dog's time - everything. If I love you, I will carry for you all your pain, I will assume for you all your debts (in every definition of the word), I will protect you from your own insecurity, I will project upon you all sorts of good qualities that you have never actually cultivated in yourself and I will buy Christmas presents for your entire family. I will give you the sun and the rain, and if they are not available, I will give you a sun check and a rain check. I will give you all this and more, until I get so exhausted and depleted that the only way I can recover my energy is by becoming infatuated with someone else.
I do not relay these facts about myself with pride, but this is how it's always been.
Some time after I'd left my husband, I was at a party and a guy I barely knew said to me, "You know, you seem like a completely different person, now that you're with this new boyfriend. You used to look like your husband, but now you look like David. You even dress like
him and talk like him. You know how some people look like their dogs? I think maybe you always look like your men. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Pain quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#131. The world has kissed my Soul with its pain, asking for its return in Songs. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Pain quotes by Sarah Ockler
#132. It takes a strong woman to lose everything, then stand naked in front of the mirror and face herself again. You need time, honey. And I don't mean time for it to go away. I mean time to learn how to live with it. This is a pain you'll always carry. #Quote by Sarah Ockler
Pain quotes by David Wilkerson
#133. As I look back over fifty years of ministry, I recall innumerable tests, trials and times of crushing pain. But through it all, the Lord has proven faithful, loving, and totally true to all his promises. #Quote by David Wilkerson
Pain quotes by Ruth Schwenk
#134. It takes a lot of pain, sweat, and tears to bring our children into the world, and just as much goes into bringing them up in the world. #Quote by Ruth Schwenk
Pain quotes by Kanye West
#135. Creative output, you know, is just pain. I'm going to be cliche for a minute and say that great art comes from pain. #Quote by Kanye West
Pain quotes by Lisa Gardner
#136. Pain is very useful. It warns you of danger, teaches you of hazards and provides consequences for your actions. #Quote by Lisa Gardner
Pain quotes by John Steinbeck
#137. (Suicide) takes some doing, with maybe pain and maybe hell. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Pain quotes by Minari Endou
#138. It hurts. It's like someone cut a hole right through my chest. It hurts, hurts, hurt, hurts. But I'll be fine. This pain too, will go away at last ... Just like the fire of the cigarette. How we met ... What we said ... It's all burning to ashes ... 'til there's no trace left. I don't want to admit it. #Quote by Minari Endou
Pain quotes by N. Daniel
#139. The most beautiful thing about humanity is that we have the power to transmute our pain into wisdom. The most tragic thing about humanity is that we are so unwilling to be hurt. #Quote by N. Daniel
Pain quotes by Jim Wallis
#140. At times I think the truest image of God today is a black inner-city grandmother in the United States or a mother of the disappeared in Argentina or the women who wake up early to make tortillas in refugee camps. They all weep for their children, and in their compassionate tears arises the political action that changes the world. The mothers show us that it is the experience of touching the pain of others that is the key to change. #Quote by Jim Wallis
Pain quotes by Lauren Oliver
#141. Take it from me: If you hear the past speaking to you, feel it tugging up your back and runing its fingers up your spine, the best thing to do-the only thing-is run. #Quote by Lauren Oliver
Pain quotes by Donald O'Donovan
#142. Compassion goes out looking for suffering, scouring the earth for poverty and misery and pain, the same way the cops look for criminals. #Quote by Donald O'Donovan
Pain quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#143. A positive attitude enables a person to endure suffering and disappointment as well as enhance enjoyment and satisfaction. A negative attitude intensifies pain and deepens disappointments; it undermines and diminishes pleasure, happiness, and satisfaction; it may even lead to depression or physical illness. #Quote by Viktor E. Frankl
Pain quotes by Rachel E. Carter
#144. Warriors dealt with pain every day, and now that the worst of mine was gone, I was determined to do the same. #Quote by Rachel E. Carter

#145. World has become a source for disguised depression. Every happiness celebrated under the shadow of death and destruction leads to disastrous psychic pain. #Quote by Nighat Hafiz

#147. He had no faith in love's capacity to cause him anything but pain. #Quote by Kristen Roupenian
Pain quotes by Gloria Naylor
#148. New customers are a pain in the butt until they get into the rhythm of things. Fried chicken Mondays. Hamburger Tuesdays. Hash Wednesdays. Pork chop Thursdays. Fish on Fridays. And a weekend open house: breakfast, lunch, dinner: your call. #Quote by Gloria Naylor
Pain quotes by Paulo Coelho
#149. I don't regret the painful times; I bare my scars as if they were medals. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Pain quotes by Elaine Scarry
#150. Whatever pain achieves, it achieves in part through its unsharability, and it ensures this unsharability through its resistance to language. "English," writes Virginia Woolf, "which can express the thoughts of Hamlet and the tragedy of Lear has no words for the shiver or the headache." ... Physical pain does not simply resist language but actively destroys it. #Quote by Elaine Scarry
Pain quotes by Diana Trilling
#151. Privacy, after all, was the most relative of privileges. It was granted us by society under ungenerous conditions, the most fundamental of them that whether for pain or profit, by design or accident, we not call public attention to ourselves. #Quote by Diana Trilling
Pain quotes by Jayce O'Neal
#152. Let God take your hurt, your pain, and turn it into something miraculous! #Quote by Jayce O'Neal
Pain quotes by Lisa Schroeder
#153. Today there's no one here,
so I find a rock and open my notebook
filled with letters to Lucca,
reading them,
noticing how the letters
decreased in frequency
over the past couple of months.
When i started,
shortly after he died,
I wrote them every day.
I hurt so bad, I wanted to scream,
but I couldn't,
so my words on the page
became a diary of the pain. #Quote by Lisa Schroeder
Pain quotes by David Mitchell
#154. Pain is strong, aye - but friends' eyes, more strong. I told him that he knows next to nothing about me & I know nothing about him. He jabbed at his eyes & jabbed at mine, as if that single gesture were ample explanation. #Quote by David Mitchell
Pain quotes by Chanda Hahn
#155. Kael did not have a singer's voice. The humming was terribly off-key. I "That sounds like cat's howling in pain. It's disturbing," I whispered. The noise from inside stopped. "Exactly!" Alek said. "He never hummed before he left." Kael pushed the white curtain aside and spoke up as he stepped out onto the porch fully dressed, "I do not sound like a cat in pain. Dog, maybe. Cat no. #Quote by Chanda Hahn
Pain quotes by Saleem Haddad
#156. In America the gay world touched my life at the margins, though references and images and occasional conversations with men and women who celebrated their homosexuality with pride. As far as I could see there was nothing to be proud about. There was only pain, humiliation and shame. If I were to join this group, I would have to act proud and hide my feelings of rejection and loneliness. If I were to show these men and women that I was terrified for my future, I would be regarded as misguided or a victim of Islam or Arabness. But if there was one thing I wsa certain of it was that there was nothing misguided about my feelings, and I did not feel that Islam or my Arabness was to blame. If I were to join this group, I would simply go from the repressiveness of secrecy to the repressiveness of pride. I didn't despise my shame. I had no reason to do so. My shame illuminated my intense attachment to the world, my desire to be connected with others. #Quote by Saleem Haddad
Pain quotes by Embee
#157. I tried to blink back the tears that just kept coming. Eventually, I gave up and let my sight be obscured. #Quote by Embee
Pain quotes by Christian Wiman
#158. I suppose I do believe that the greatest art consoles a wound that it creates, that art can give you the capacity to endure and respond to the pain it forces you to feel. Psychological pain, I mean. #Quote by Christian Wiman
Pain quotes by Amit Ray
#159. Unless you understand the pain and sufferings of the people, trees, birds and the nature, how can you understand God. #Quote by Amit Ray
Pain quotes by Erin Hunter
#160. Yellowfang dragged her gaze from Brokenstar and looked at Fireheart. Her eyes clouded with pain and grief as she murmured, "He is my son." Fireheart felt the ground lurch under his paws. #Quote by Erin Hunter
Pain quotes by David J. Lieberman
#161. Suicide is the dumbest possible way of getting revenge. Why is that? Because the people you want to strike back at are the very same folks who won't even remember you a week after you're gone, while the people you want to spare most
the people who love you
are the ones who will have to live with the pain of your suicide for the rest of their lives. #Quote by David J. Lieberman
Pain quotes by Akshay Vasu
#162. They lied to her every day saying that she can't fly. And the most painful thing about it was, she believed it till the end. #Quote by Akshay Vasu
Pain quotes by Julie Lessman
#163. And that is that no matter how much joy or pain we have in this world - and I have experienced both - nothing satisfies the human heart like the love of God. #Quote by Julie Lessman
Pain quotes by Cameron Conaway
#164. Real childhood scars heal, but not when band-aids replace self-reflection. #Quote by Cameron Conaway
Pain quotes by Pema Chodron
#165. In meditation we can notice how emotions and moods are connected with having lost or gained something, having been praised or blamed, and so forth. We can notice how what begins as a simple thought, a simple quality of energy, quickly blossoms into full-blown pleasure and pain. #Quote by Pema Chodron
Pain quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#166. The readers of Isabel's journal were affected by the conversations within its covers-if nothing else, the livingroom of their moral imagination became bigger. And this must surely have some bearing on the way they dealt with the world, even in the small transactions of life: awareness of the pain of others here, a word of comfort there. Of course, the admission of kindness to one's life did not spring from any contimplation of the views of Hobbes (selfish Hobbes) and Hume (the good, generous Davey), but it did no harm to know about all of that. And that was where philosophy really did count: it set out the major choices behind all of those practical day-to-day questions of charity and understanding and simple decency; it was the weatherthe backdrop against which those practical matters were debated. #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Pain quotes by Marion Zimmer Bradley
#167. Return again, return, life itself is calling you with all its pleasure and pain ... #Quote by Marion Zimmer Bradley
Pain quotes by Stanley Kunitz
#168. Toward dawn we shared with you
your hour of desolation,
the huge lingering passion
of your unearthly out cry,
as you swung your blind head
towards us and laboriously opened
a bloodshot, glistening eye,
in which we swam with terror and recognition. #Quote by Stanley Kunitz
Pain quotes by Leanne Waters
#169. If I had the capacity to withstand instantaneous physical pain, I think I would have even considered taking a razor to my leg. Because after so long of living in that hole, I would have rather felt pain than nothing at all; I just wanted to feel something again. You reach a milestone in such illnesses when denial lifts and you realize that the things you do are truly damaging both to yourself and to others. By then, however, you learn to not care and you embrace the notion that this method of self-harming is both deserved and satisfying. #Quote by Leanne Waters
Pain quotes by Walter M. Miller Jr.
#170. We are the centuries... We have your eoliths and your mesoliths and your neoliths. We have your Babylons and your Pompeiis, your Caesars and your chromium-plated (vital-ingredient impregnated) artifacts. We have your bloody hatchets and your Hiroshimas. We march in spite of Hell, we do – Atrophy, Entropy, and Proteus vulgaris, telling bawdy jokes about a farm girl name of Eve and a traveling salesman called Lucifer. We bury your dead and their reputations. We bury you. We are the centuries. Be born then, gasp wind, screech at the surgeon's slap, seek manhood, taste a little godhood, feel pain, give birth, struggle a little while, succumb: (Dying, leave quietly by the rear exit, please.) Generation, regeneration, again, again, as in a ritual, with blood-stained vestments and nail-torn hands, children of Merlin, chasing a gleam. Children, too, of Eve, forever building Edens – and kicking them apart in berserk fury because somehow it isn't the same. (AGH! AGH! AGH! – an idiot screams his mindless anguish amid the rubble. But quickly! let it be inundated by the choir, chanting Alleluias at ninety decibels.) #Quote by Walter M. Miller Jr.
Pain quotes by Ruben Dario
#171. The tree is happy because it is scarcely sentient;
the hard rock is happier still, it feels nothing:
there is no pain as great as being alive,
no burden heavier than that of conscious life. #Quote by Ruben Dario
Pain quotes by Josie Litton
#172. I don't know why I lived and she not. She was better than I, sweeter and kinder. It should have been me."
"No!" He held her fiercely, stroking away the tears that trickled down her ashen cheeks. "Do not say that! Does not your own faith teach that we are always in the hands of god?"
"A careless god or an unfathomable one. Why create a world of pain?"
"It is not. You know yourself, there is great beauty here and joy."
She knew, at least now she did, since she had known him.
"I am a Viking." He said it sorrowfully, as though he would change it if he could.
"I do not think you are like the others." Truth. She did not, had never, not since the knowing of him.
"You do not touch me." The words were out before she could reclaim them. She bit her lip hard, drawing blood.
"Don't," he said, nearly pleading as he caught the tiny crimson drop. His lips touched hers, brushing lightly, giving her the taste of him. "I will," he said, and she was gone, lost in the glow of yearning. #Quote by Josie Litton
Pain quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#173. Yeah, but I don't want to be in pain, and I definitely don't want to suffer." – Nick
"Well…The only way to avoid them is to die." – Death
"Okay, let's change the topic now. Oh, look! A chicken." – Nick #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Pain quotes by Margaret Clarkson
#174. Pain is pain and sorrow is sorrow. It hurts. It limits. It impoverishes. It isolates. It restrains. It works devastation deep within the personality. It circumscribes in a thousand different ways. There is nothing good about it. But the gifts God can give with it are the richest the human spirit can know. #Quote by Margaret Clarkson
Pain quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#175. I often wonder how we can make the more fortunate in this country fully aware of the fact that the problem of the unemployed is not a mechanical one. It is a problem alive and throbbing with human pain. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Pain quotes by David Wright
#176. I take great pride in going out there and playing through pain. #Quote by David Wright
Pain quotes by Gwen Mitchell
#177. Another thing about pain - it renders you incapable of bullshit. #Quote by Gwen Mitchell
Pain quotes by Rick Riordan
#178. He would joke around, make a few friends, pretend that nothing bothered him, but he always ended up running sooner or later. It was the only thing that made the pain better - feeling like he was moving, getting father and farther away. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Pain quotes by Susan Sontag
#179. Making suffering loom larger, by globalizing it, may spur people to feel they ought to "care" more. #Quote by Susan Sontag
Pain quotes by Aldous Huxley
#180. Amour is the one human activity of any importance in which laughter and pleasure preponderate, if ever so slightly, over misery and pain. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Pain quotes by Mary Balogh
#181. Pain is not insignificant. Neither is bewilderment or fear. Or conditions like poverty or homelessness. But somewhere - somewhere - there is peace. It is not even far off. It is somewhere deep inside us, in fact, ever present, just waiting for us to look inward to find it. She #Quote by Mary Balogh
Pain quotes by Tiffany Reisz
#182. You're not answering my question. It's getting irritating."
"Okay, serious answer. Ready? Here we go." Nora took a deep breath. She didn't want to talk about this stuff with Marie-Laure, but as long as she stayed interesting, as long as she stayed entertaining, she stayed alive. "I get off on submitting to Søren. I don't know how or why. I can't explain any more than you can explain why you like Irish breakfast tea instead of English breakfast or whatever you're drinking. It's a personal taste. I liked it. He's the most beautiful man on earth, he's got an inner drive and power that I'm drawn to, he can scare the shit out of someone with a glance, he can put someone on their knees with a word, he can see into your soul if you make the mistake of looking into his eyes. And it is a mistake because you will never want to look away again no matter how bare and naked he lays your most private self. I knelt at his feet because I felt like that's where I belonged. And no, not because I was so unworthy of him, but because he was so utterly worthy of my devotion."
A noble speech and a true one, Nora decided as her words settled into the room. True, yes, but not the whole truth. Might as well spill it all.
"Oh," she added a moment later. "And me submitting to pain gets him rock hard and the man fucks like a freight train when in the right mood. Not that you would know anything about that. #Quote by Tiffany Reisz
Pain quotes by Tessa Bailey
#183. If you really want me, you need to be patient. I can't change overnight." She took a deep breath. "I know I'm a colossal pain in the ass, but try not to give up on me."

He supported her face in his hands, promises and a touch of humor in his expression. "Hey. You're my colossal pain in the ass. And I'm not going anywhere. #Quote by Tessa Bailey
Pain quotes by Christopher Cross
#184. I'm now wearing suits on stage, so I've kinda stepped up my game as far as image. Which I have to admit is kind of a pain the butt, but it's fun. It gives you a certain amount of confidence to walk on stage and look nice, but I can't say that I'm totally buying into the whole image factor. #Quote by Christopher Cross
Pain quotes by Annie Brewer
#185. I wanna know Maddy Walker. The real one. The one who stole my heart. #Quote by Annie Brewer
Pain quotes by Sylvia Plath
#186. I thought it sounded just like the sort of drug a man would invent. Here was a woman in terrible pain, obviously feeling every bit of it or she wouldn't groan like that, and she would go straight home and start another baby, because the drug would make her forget how bad the pain had been, when all the time, in some secret part of her, that long, blind, doorless and windowless corridor of pain was waiting to open up and shut her in again. #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Pain quotes by L. Jon Wertheim
#187. The pain of losing a dollar is far more powerful than the pleasure of winning a dollar. #Quote by L. Jon Wertheim
Pain quotes by Havelock Ellis
#188. Pain and death are part of life. To reject them is to reject life itself. #Quote by Havelock Ellis
Pain quotes by Linda Collins
#189. I would not mind going mad. It would absolve me of any need to go on coping, which is a particular kind of living hell. The simplicity of letting go, of shuffling about in a Valium- induced haze, is alluring. I lack the kind of ruthless ability that Victoria had to bring about a complete physical destruction of the entire human package. It is my fate to keep waking and find myself alive. #Quote by Linda Collins
Pain quotes by Les Simple
#190. Bad days makes you stronger, those are the best days because God is talking to you. you just have to listen closely. Don't let your tears become louder than his voice. #Quote by Les Simple
Pain quotes by T.B. LaBerge
#191. One day we will dance with no restraint, and we will love with no fear. For when the King returns, it will be as though our pain was but a dream, and our hope is the only reality we know. #Quote by T.B. LaBerge
Pain quotes by Shayne M. Bowen
#192. I have learned that the bitter, almost unbearable pain can become sweet as you turn to your Father in Heaven and plead for His comfort that comes through His plan; His Son, Jesus Christ; and His Comforter, who is the Holy Ghost. …

"I testify that because of … Jesus Christ, those feelings of sorrow, loneliness, and despair will one day be swallowed up in a fulness of joy. I testify that we can depend on Him and when He said: 'I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you' (John 14:18). #Quote by Shayne M. Bowen
Pain quotes by Kalcee Clornel
#193. It won't kill you, or him," Raeshon replied, his voice slightly louder than usual. "It's nothing physical."
"Physical I can handle," Kaevin rasped in pain. "But this, this I don't think I can."
Kath gasped as another wave of pain wracked through her heart and she fell onto her side.
"It didn't know it would be this bad," Raeshon said quietly, his posture tense. "I really didn't."
"I think you did," Kaevin ground out. "And I think you didn't care. #Quote by Kalcee Clornel
Pain quotes by Tillie Cole
#194. Ice-cold chills ran through my body as I stared at this little soldier beneath me, slight but with a heart of steel.
Lifting her head, she pressed her forehead to mine and said, "We are different. Me weak and you strong. Me a Georgian and you Russian, but our broken hearts are tired and old. Our spirits are low, though not broken. But our souls, though thoroughly tested and hardened through pain, are resilient." Her lips twitched, and she added, "They are the same. #Quote by Tillie Cole
Pain quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
#195. Tell me there is a God in the serene heavens that will damn his children for the expression of an honest belief! More men have died in their sins, judged by your orthodox creeds, than there are leaves in all the forests in the wide world ten thousand times over. Tell me these men are in Hell; that these men are in torment; that these children are in eternal pain, and that they are to be punished forever and forever! I denounce this doctrine as the most infamous of lies. #Quote by Robert Green Ingersoll
Pain quotes by Trisscar
#196. So someone asked me what some of my weakness were. And I responded to them saying my fears. They proceeded to ask me what my fears were. So I told them that I feared love. So he asked me how I could fear love.

I told him how could I not? Love changes a person in unimaginable ways. It forces you to want to protect someone, to hold them, to never have them feel pain. It forces you to just...go crazy. Media these days -- especially romantic comedies portray love to be some magical thing where there are cupcakes and unicorns. Its not. Its suffering, its pain, and its a hell lot of tears. And when you love someone, when you genuinely let them in your heart and take down all your walls...everything goes downhill. Everything...its over. You burden them with your problems, you make them suffer, you kill them. So why do I fear love? Because I'm afraid of hurting people. I'm afraid that after I let ʜɪᴍ in, and after he broke me...I'm afraid I won't be able to heal myself this time.

Yeah I'm a scared pussy. Go ahead and call me that all you want. It doesn't change anything. I'm a selfish, scared, bastard. And I can't do anything about it. #Quote by Trisscar
Pain quotes by Kedar Joshi
#197. If I am convinced that I will procure the profoundest idea only by undergoing the profoundest pain, I shall beg for strength to endure that pain. #Quote by Kedar Joshi
Pain quotes by Tanya Masse
#198. Laughter IS the BEST medicine! It's FREE! You can overdose on it! It helps you embrace the insanities of life! It reduces stress, heals your body and relieves pain! It fights disease and cancer and strengthens the immune system! It eases your mind, it protects your heart and soothes your soul! #Quote by Tanya Masse
Pain quotes by August Strindberg
#199. We are already in Hell. It is the earth itself that is Hell, the prison constructed for us by an intelligence superior to our own, in which I could not take a step without injuring the happiness of others, and in which my fellow creatures could not enjoy their own happiness without causing me pain. #Quote by August Strindberg
Pain quotes by Maha Khalid
#200. There is nothing but love. There was nothing but love. Love is all it is, and nothing exists that does not exist of love. That which is real and true is love. Suffering pain and loss is not real. Reality is that which is from love and love is the essence of the divine. What is not love is not real. What is not real is a construct made up by the ego through the instrument of the mind. It is the world of illusion, the veil on our eyes of utter darkness preventing us from seeing that which is real and true, which is love #Quote by Maha Khalid
