    Haruki Murakami
    “I think you still love me, but we can’t escape the fact that I’m not enough for you. I knew this was going to happen. So I’m not blaming you for falling in love with another woman. I’m not angry, either. I should be, but I’m not. I just feel pain. A lot of pain. I thought I could imagine how much this would hurt, but I was wrong.”
    Haruki Murakami, South of the Border, West of the Sun

    Jim Morrison
    “People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.”
    Jim Morrison

    Sam Dosdos

    Audrey Hepburn

    “If pain must come, may it come quickly. Because I have a life to live, and I need to live it in the best way possible. If he has to make a choice, may he make it now. Then I will either wait for him or forget him.”
    Paulo Coelho, By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept

    Jonathan Safran Foer
    “She was a genius of sadness, immersing herself in it, separating its numerous strands, appreciating its subtle nuances. She was a prism through which sadness could be divided into its infinite spectrum.”
    Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated

    Bob Dylan

    Laurell K. Hamilton

    Laurell K. Hamilton, Mistral's Kiss


  • #7
    John Green
    “I feel like my life is so scattered right now. Like it's all the small pieces of paper and someone's turned on the fan. But, talking to you makes me feel like the fan's been turned off for a little bit. Like things could actually make sense. You completely unscatter me, and I appreciate that so much.”
    John Green, Will Grayson, Will Grayson

    Edgar Allan Poe
    “I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.”
    Edgar Allan Poe

    “The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve.
    Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity. An
    important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative
    thinking and negative acting people. As you grow, your associates will
    change. Some of your friends will not want you to go on. They will want you
    to stay where they are. Friends that don't help you climb will want you to
    crawl. Your friends will stretch your vision or choke your dream. Those that
    don't increase you will eventually decrease you.

    Consider this:
    Never receive counsel from unproductive people. Never discuss your problems
    with someone incapable of contributing to the solution, because those who
    never succeed themselves are always first to tell you how. Not everyone has
    a right to speak into your life. You are certain to get the worst of the
    bargain when you exchange ideas with the wrong person. Don't follow anyone
    who's not going anywhere.

    With some people you spend an evening: with others you invest it. Be careful
    where you stop to inquire for directions along the road of life. Wise is the
    person who fortifies his life with the right friendships. If you run with
    wolves, you will learn how to howl. But, if you associate with eagles, you
    will learn how to soar to great heights.
    "A mirror reflects a man's face, but what he is really like is shown by the
    kind of friends he chooses."

    The simple but true fact of life is that you become like those with whom you
    closely associate - for the good and the bad.

    Note: Be not mistaken. This is applicable to family as well as friends.
    Yes...do love, appreciate and be thankful for your family, for they will
    always be your family no matter what. Just know that they are human first
    and though they are family to you, they may be a friend to someone else and
    will fit somewhere in the criteria above.

    "In Prosperity Our Friends Know Us. In Adversity We Know Our friends."

    "Never make someone a priority when you are only an option for them."
    "If you are going to achieve excellence in big things,you develop the habit in little matters.
    Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude.."..”
    Colin Powell

    Jodi Picoult
    “The damage was permanent; there would always be scars. But even the angriest scars faded over time until it was difficult to see them written on the skin at all, and the only thing that remained was the memory of how painful it had been.”
    Jodi Picoult


  • #9
    “Everybody says the first cut if the deepest. It’s so true. I don’t know if it’s because it’s the best love, but it’s the first that you remember. There is one boy that I will remember for the rest of my life, and I wouldn’t go as far as to say, ‘Oh I was in love with him and he broke my heart’. You hold on to that, just that first experience, it’s good to have and you should appreciate it, even if it hurts.”
    ― Kristen Stewart

    Rose Kennedy
    “It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.”
    Rose Kennedy

    Robert Greene
    “LAW 38
    Think As You Like But Behave Like Others

    If you make a show of going against the times, flaunting your unconventional ideas and unorthodox ways, people will think that you only want attention and that you look down upon them. They will find a way to punish you for making them feel inferior. It is far safer to blend in and nurture the common touch. Share your originality only with tolerant friends and those who are sure to appreciate your uniqueness.”
    Robert Greene, The 48 Laws of Power

    Chase Brooks
    “When someone cries so hard that it hurts their throat, it is out of frustration or knowing that no matter what you can do or attempt to do can change the situation. When you feel like you need to cry, when you want to just get it out, relieve some of the pressure from the inside - that is true pain. Because no matter how hard you try or how bad you want to, you can't. That pain just stays in place. Then, if you are lucky, one small tear may escape from those eyes that water constantly. That one tear, that tiny, salty, droplet of moisture is a means of escape. Although it's just a small tear, it is the heaviest thing in the world. And it doesn't do a damn thing to fix anything.”
    Chase Brooks, Hello, My Love 2: First Love Deserves a Second Chance

    Harley King
    “Sometimes we fight who we are, struggling against ourselves and our natures. But we must learn to accept who we are and appreciate who we become. We must love ourselves for what and who we are, and believe in our talents.”
    Harley King

    Harlan Ellison
    “I know that pain is the most important thing in the universes. Greater than survival, greater than love, greater even than the beauty it brings about. For without pain, there can be no pleasure. Without sadness, there can be no happiness. Without misery there can be no beauty. And without these, life is endless, hopeless, doomed and damned.
    Adult. You have become adult.”
    Harlan Ellison, Paingod and other delusions

    Emily Brontë
    “By this curious turn of disposition I have gained the reputation of deliberate heartlessness; how undeserved, I alone can appreciate.”
    Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights


  • #12
    “Forgiveness has nothing to do with absolving a criminal of his crime. It has everything to do with relieving oneself of the burden of being a victim--letting go of the pain and transforming oneself from victim to survivor.”
    C.R. Strahan


  • #13
    Rob Sheffield
    “It’s the same with people who say, ‘Whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.’ Even people who say this must realize that the exact opposite is true. What doesn’t kill you maims you, cripples you, leaves you weak, makes you whiny and full of yourself at the same time. The more pain, the more pompous you get. Whatever doesn’t kill you makes you incredibly annoying.”
    Rob Sheffield, Love is a Mix Tape


  • #13
    Nathaniel Hawthorne
    “It contributes greatly towards a man's moral and intellectual health, to be brought into habits of companionship with individuals unlike himself, who care little for his pursuits, and whose sphere and abilities he must go out of himself to appreciate.”
    Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter


  • #14
    José N. Harris
    “Tears shed for another person are not a sign of weakness. They are a sign of a pure heart.”
    José N. Harris, MI VIDA: A Story of Faith, Hope and Love


  • #14
    Osho
    “If you love a flower, don’t pick it up.
    Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love.
    So if you love a flower, let it be.
    Love is not about possession.
    Love is about appreciation.”
    Osho


  • #15
    Margaret Atwood
    “But who can remember pain, once it’s over? All that remains of it is a shadow, not in the mind even, in the flesh. Pain marks you, but too deep to see. Out of sight, out of mind.”
    Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale


  • #15
    Elbert Hubbard
    “I would rather be able to appreciate things I cannot have than to have things I am not able to appreciate.”
    Elbert Hubbard
