Audre Lorde

Bryant McGill
“The storm is out there and every one of us must eventually face the storm. When the storm comes, pray that it will shake you to your roots and break you wide-open. Being broken open by the storm is your only hope. When you are broken open you get to discover for the first time what is inside you. Some people never get to see what is inside them; what beauty, what strength, what truth and love. They were never broken open by the storm. So, don't run from your pain — run into your pain. Let life's storm shatter you.”
Bryant McGill, Simple Reminders: Inspiration for Living Your Best Life

P.S. Baber
“See, if you analyze stuff long enough, you’ll eventually break ideas down to the quantum level where nothing makes sense and there’s no longer any meaning to anything. And then when you try to put it all back together again, you realize the pieces just don’t fit anymore. Worse, you realize that the pieces never fit in the first place. And then you’re left with a heap of broken ideas and beliefs that are shattered beyond repair. That’s reality, and that’s what I write about.”
P.S. Baber, Cassie Draws the Universe

Jay McLean

Tahereh Mafi
“We've been shattered and reconstructed, told to make an effort every single day to pretend we still function the way we're supposed to. But it's a lie, it's all a lie; every person, place, thing and idea is a lie. I do not function properly. I am nothing more than the consequence of catastrophe.”
Tahereh Mafi, Unravel Me

Bryant McGill
“The beauty of being shattered is how the shards become our character and our marks of distinction. This is how we are refined by our pain. When the storm rips you to pieces, you get to decide how to put yourself back together again. The storm gives us the gift of our defining choices. You will be a different person after the storm, because the storm will heal you from your perfection. People who stay perfect and unblemished never really get to live fully or deeply. You will not be the same after the storms of life; you will be stronger, wiser and more alive than ever before!”
Bryant McGill, Simple Reminders: Inspiration for Living Your Best Life

Stefan Zweig
“A lame creature, a cripple like myself, has no right to love. How should I, broken, shattered being that I am, be anything but a burden to you, when to myself I am an object of disgust, of loathing. A creature such as I, I know, has no right to love, and certainly no right to be loved. It is for such a creature to creep away into a corner and die and cease to make other people's lives a burden with her presence.”
Stefan Zweig, Beware of Pity

Sanjo Jendayi
“When one's life has been shattered into a million pieces, most set out to pick up the pieces & rebuild. Others look at those broken pieces & decide this is their opportunity to start anew, the bigger picture comes into view. They see more, & want better so they leave those pieces scattered as a memorial to who they used to be!”
Sanjo Jendayi

Bryant McGill

Beth Revis
“Images of broken light dance behind my eyelids. How could this giant lamp compare to the sun?
Everything is wrong here. Shattered. Broken.
Like the light.
Like me.
I never thought about how important the sky was until I didn’t have one.
I am surrounded by walls.
I have just replaced one box for another.”
Beth Revis, Across the Universe

• Children with shattered futures;

Sunday Adelaja

“Your eyes are hallow,
Your heart is bruised,
Your temple has been raided,
Your soul has been shattered,
Was he worth it?”
Tanzy Sayadi, Write like no one is reading 2

“The past is but an untraceable footfall

It appears in intervals and pushes us back in time,

In those moments of grief and then suddenly vanishes.

It’s often dark and ruthless.

It baffles our thoughts and seizes our peace of mind.

By making us recollect our failures, our buried expectations

And our shattered dreams

It only gives way to fleeting tears, leaving us with fruitless guilt.

It wrecks our present and ruins our future

And thus should be left where it is meant to be

It should be left behind …”
Chirag Tulsiani

Craig D. Lounsbrough

Margaret Way, The Girl at Cobalt Creek

“We are broken. Our ways are apart.
Still we laugh together and taunt.
We fight and get hurt...
Still we don't stop!
We spread love among us,
With the scent of believe.
We write on live.
Our dreams are shattered.
We think to move on,
But scared to miss each other.
We smirk when someone scolds,
But we drink a jar of poison each time.
We die and born everyday.
We rely on each other.
We get furious.
We tease and never step back.
We listen but never act on.
For public we are mature,
But among us we are childish.
We act like ninjas among us.
And we love to stay like this...
Among us forever!
Because we are siblings.”
Irfa Adam

Krishna Udayasankar
“I, on the other hand, felt as I always have, like I were water seeping from a broken pot; I existed but had no form to hold me in place.”

Ana Claudia Antunes
“If you want to heal a broken heart,
Be smart! That's all an ancient art.
Start by loving the very small parts
That were left there shattered apart.”
Ana Claudia Antunes, Pierrot & Columbine
