Alysha Speer
“Life is painful and messed up. It gets complicated at the worst of times, and sometimes you have no idea where to go or what to do. Lots of times people just let themselves get lost, dropping into a wide open, huge abyss. But that's why we have to keep trying. We have to push through all that hurts us, work past all our memories that are haunting us. Sometimes the things that hurt us are the things that make us strongest. A life without experience, in my opinion, is no life at all. And that's why I tell everyone that, even when it hurts, never stop yourself from living.”
Alysha Speer

Alexandre Dumas
“Moral wounds have this peculiarity - they may be hidden, but they never close; always painful, always ready to bleed when touched, they remain fresh and open in the heart.”
Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo

Anaïs Nin
“Last night I wept. I wept because the process by which I have become woman was painful. I wept because I was no longer a child with a child's blind faith. I wept because my eyes were opened to reality....I wept because I could not believe anymore and I love to believe. I can still love passionately without believing. That means I love humanly. I wept because I have lost my pain and I am not yet accustomed to its absence.”
Anaïs Nin, Henry and June: From "A Journal of Love"--The Unexpurgated Diary of Anaïs Nin

Santosh Kalwar
“If I can see pain in your eyes then share with me your tears. If I can see joy in your eyes then share with me your smile.”
Santosh Kalwar

Veronica Roth, Insurgent

Andrew  Boyd
“Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.”
Andrew Boyd, Daily Afflictions: The Agony of Being Connected to Everything in the Universe

Richard Kadrey
“Memories are bullets. Some whiz by and only spook you. Others tear you open and leave you in pieces.”
Richard Kadrey, Kill the Dead

Jacqueline Carey

Jacqueline Carey, Kushiel's Chosen

Shannon L. Alder
“There are no coincidences in life. What person that wandered in and out of your life was there for some purpose, even if they caused you harm. Sometimes, it doesn’t make sense the short periods of time we get with people, or the outcomes from their choices. However, if you turn it over to God he promises that you will see the big picture in the hereafter. Nothing is too small to be a mistake.”
Shannon L. Alder

Rumi
“The cure for pain is in the pain.”
Rumi

Lauren Oliver
“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.”
Lauren Oliver, Delirium

Neil Gaiman
“Adventures are all very well in their place, but there's a lot to be said for regular meals and freedom from pain.”
Neil Gaiman, Stardust

Haruki Murakami
“Being with her I feel a pain, like a frozen knife stuck in my chest. An awful pain, but the funny thing is I'm thankful for it. It's like that frozen pain and my very existence are one.
The pain is an anchor, mooring me here.
Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

محمد حسن علوان
“أوجع الأيام بعد الحب، ليس أولها، لأن النبتة لا تتألم فور انقطاع الماء، بل عندما يبدأ الجفاف فعلاً.”
محمد حسن علوان, طوق الطهارة

Ann Brashares
“When you feel someone else's pain and joy as powerfully as if it were your own, then you know you really loved them.”
Ann Brashares, Girls In Pants: The Third Summer of the Sisterhood

T.H. White
“She hardly ever thought of him. He had worn a place for himself in some corner of her heart, as a sea shell, always boring against the rock, might do. The making of the place had been her pain. But now the shell was safely in the rock. It was lodged, and ground no longer.”
T.H. White, The Once and Future King

Criss Jami
“If a man cannot understand the beauty of life, it is probably because life never understood the beauty in him.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Charlotte Brontë
“Jane, my little darling (so I will call you, for so you are), you don't know what you are talking about; you misjudge me again: it is not because she is mad I hate her. If you were mad, do you think I should hate you?"

"I do indeed, sir."

"Then you are mistaken, and you know nothing about me, and nothing about the sort of love of which I am capable. Every atom of your flesh is as dear to me as my own: in pain and sickness it would still be dear. Your mind is my treasure, and if it were broken, it would be my treasure still: if you raved, my arms should confine you, and not a strait waistcoat--your grasp, even in fury, would have a charm for me: if you flew at me as wildly as that woman did this morning, I should receive you in an embrace, at least as fond as it would be restrictive. I should not shrink from you with disgust as I did from her: in your quiet moments you should have no watcher and no nurse but me; and I could hang over you with untiring tenderness, though you gave me no smile in return; and never weary of gazing into your eyes, though they had no longer a ray of recognition for me.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Alanis Morissette
“When pain brings you down, don't be silly, don't close your eyes and cry, you just might be in the best position to see the sun shine.”
Alanis Morissette

Rumi
“These pains you feel are messengers. Listen to them.”
Rumi, The Essential Rumi

Matthew Arnold
“Ah, love, let us be true
To one another! for the world, which seems
To lie before us like a land of dreams,
So various, so beautiful, so new,
Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light,
Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain;
And we are here as on a darkling plain
Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight,
Where ignorant armies clash by night.”
Matthew Arnold, Dover Beach and Other Poems

Shannon L. Alder
“Most misunderstandings in the world could be avoided if people would simply take the time to ask, "What else could this mean?”
Shannon L. Alder

J.D. Stroube
“Life is filled with unanswered questions, but it is the courage to seek those answers that continues to give meaning to life. You can spend your life wallowing in despair, wondering why you were the one who was led towards the road strewn with pain, or you can be grateful that you are strong enough to survive it.”
J.D. Stroube, Caged by Damnation
