Julie Gregory, Sickened: The Memoir of a Munchausen by Proxy Childhood

Anmol Rawat

Alaric Hutchinson
“There is no excuse good enough to ever be out of alignment with love. You’re going to get hurt, and you will feel pain. Yet your purpose is to keep loving, anyway. Keep moving forward with an open heart. Love is a Divine gift given to humanity. Wasting it is no longer an option. Love is what brings light to a dark place. Love is what transforms a dying world into a thriving planet.”
Alaric Hutchinson, Living Peace

“Occasionally, I would visit the graveyard in my heart, knowing that some people that were buried there are still alive. I could not help wondering: How many people buried me, too, in the graveyard of their hearts?

Elaine di Rollo
“Remembrance is a strange thing. With love its pain is bearable. With bitterness it simply destroys.”
Elaine di Rollo, Bleakly Hall

“The sad part is you love her..... and she didn't love you back.”
Joshua Pallarca

Alaric Hutchinson
“People who suffer the most often inflict the most pain onto others. Compassion can be found through understanding this. When someone is internally suffering, sometimes the only reality they know is that of pain and thus their only knowledge is how to be a victim or an abuser. That’s all they are able to communicate. Holding onto the thorn of resentment does not help them or you, but fostering compassion and forgiveness will.”
Alaric Hutchinson, Living Peace

“Every unpleasant worldly experience in life exposes our sensitive nervous systems to painful phenomena. Despite all the beer commercial advertisement slogans urging us to live with gusto, life is unavoidably painful. Life is a battering ram that inflicts trauma upon human beings. People blunt the traumatic force of enduring a lifetime of pain, fearfulness, and unremitted anguish and boredom with religion, sex, booze, drugs, fantasy, and other indulgent acts and forms acts of escapism.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“Parallel to tenderness and cruelty, the cataracts of pleasure and pain are interrelated. Painful and pleasurable sensations instruct us of our physical boundaries. The collective scorecard of physical pain and pleasurable sensations define the evolving self. Our internal clockworks comprised of remembrances of times past, both painful and pleasurable, provide each of us with a telling emotional autobiography. What we primarily recall – pain or pleasure – is revelatory. How we act with kindness and tenderheartedly, or hardheartedly and cruelly is equally telling.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“You learn how to keep your secret better when your secret gets into the mind of a man with a slippery tongue.”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“I’m back there again, broken from being a champion,
The boy that no one loved,
The years I spent training like a method actor to
Become the man that everyone admired,
But it means nothing,
Like ashes on a forehead, they marked me inferior,
When I was still young enough to receive it into the grain of my being”
Terrence Alonzo Craft, The Seed Bridge: Collected Poems

Rasheed Ogunlaru
“Is your life story the truth? Yes, the chronological events are true. Is it the whole truth? No, you see and judge it through your conditioned eyes and mind - not of all involved - nor do you see the entire overview. Is it nothing but the truth? No, you select, share, delete, distort, subtract, assume and add what you want, need and choose to.”
Rasheed Ogunlaru

“Nothing cuts a neural route faster through the brain then a pinch of pain. Periods of unhappiness penetrate and scar the brain. Experiencing intense periods of unpleasantness incites us to grow. If we can bunt the destructive forces of extreme pain and embrace its forceful impact for its educational value, experiencing profound pain causes us to appreciate the pleasure of simply living in the moment, enjoying each blade of grass in nature’s glorious bouts of beauty.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“Because of the past, so many people are living in the past! No one is free from the past, but we are free to choose to move from the past into the present or stay in the past, though we live in the present!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“The more you resist change, the more it will be painful for you to accept it.”
Chanda Kaushik

“When you patiently examine the beautiful skin of the leopard after it’s hard day's search for the meat it enjoys, you shall not only see the sweat that went into its search for the meat, but you shall also realize the scent of the sweat beneath the beautiful skin.”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Sarvesh Jain
“The pain is not always measured by a number of tears rolling down your cheek. There are kinds of pain with no appearances, whatsoever.”
Sarvesh Jain, The Awakening Wisdom of Life: Probably the best Quotation Book in the world

“Pain is so quick to gain pain is easy to blame. Pain can get so fast To regain Pain will Change
The Heart of Shame Pain is not
Willie Triplett

Lisa See
“All the time, I looked out our lattice window. I watched the birds fly by. I followed the clouds on their travels. I studied the moon as it grew larger, then shrank. So much happened outside my window that I almost forgot what was happening inside that room.”
Lisa See, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan

Jacquelyn Nicole Davis
“When you go into the psych ward, you can’t have anything with you except colored pencils. You can’t have any electronics. If you have a drawstring on your pants, a belt, shoelaces, a hood, or extra-long fabric, your very clothes are ripped off your back. They search you with a metal detector like you’re a criminal, doing everything short of putting their hand up your butt. Before you go through those cold, automatic, barred doors, you know your life is not your own. This is especially true during the first week, while you stare at florescent lighting and wait impatiently for your meds to kick in. I wish I had remembered the psych ward prison cell a week ago. If I had, maybe I wouldn’t be wearing this hospital gown that they gave me until I can get more compliant clothes.”
Jacquelyn Nicole Davis, Trace The Grace: A Memoir

Jacquelyn Nicole Davis
“Though my mental illness is more likened to a big, nasty green monster than something heart-wrenchingly beautiful, I think I have learned many wonderful lessons from my many afflictions.”
Jacquelyn Nicole Davis, Trace The Grace: A Memoir

Melita Tessy
“I knew that the pain I felt now was here to stay. In many forms. Through many nights.”
Melita Tessy, Battle of the Spheres: Crust, Mantle and Core

“We are born with the innate capacity to express empathy. Experiencing our own cuts and bruises, encountering our own difficulties and disappointments, expands our cognitive world and rouses the universal desire to understand and comfort other people in pain.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“Childhood introduces children to the wounds of the world.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls
