“...you want things to remain the same, which they never can, and so you’re wounded by your own feelings & resentful others don’t seem to care...”
John Geddes, A Familiar Rain

Anthon St. Maarten
“Never shy away from opportunity and wholehearted living. Never be fearful of putting yourself out there. The courageous may encounter many disappointments, experience profound disillusionment, gather many wounds; but cherish your scars for they are the proud emblems of a truly phenomenal life. The fearful, cautious, cynical and self-repressed do not live at all. And that is simply no way to be in this world.”
Anthon St. Maarten

Dean Koontz
“We are all the walking wounded in a world that is a war zone. Everything we love will be taken from us, everything, last of all life itself. Yet everywhere I look, I find great beauty in this battlefield, and grace and the promise of joy.”
Dean Koontz, Odd Apocalypse

Lisa Tenzin-Dolma
“Chiron reminds us that only through recognising and accepting our inner wounds can we find true healing.”
Lisa Tenzin-Dolma

Ann Aguirre
“So I make no effort to hide my pain. I don’t ever put it all on display like this—but for today and all the rest of the days of the trial, I must. My every flinch, every flicker of pain, will be
magnified a hundred times over, then dissected by the pundits and talking heads. But I’m told it’s necessary; the world needs to see me vulnerable and wounded. I cannot appear not to care or to lack remorse, but that removes a crucial component of my self- defense mechanism and leaves me bleeding for all the world to see. I suppose that’s rather the point.”
Ann Aguirre, Aftermath

M.F. Moonzajer
“A wounded lover is more dangerous than a coward army.”
M.F. Moonzajer, A moment with God ; Poetry

“You better not be touched by love; you are living peacefully. But if you do, you better not be left by it. Because The Wounded in love is only shreds of heart scattered. Even if you manage to regain your heart, you will never be that peaceful person again. Such is the curse of love.”
Heenashree Khandelwal

Diana Gabaldon
“For the moment, everything had disappeared: the church, the battle, the screams and shouts and the rumble of limber wheels along the rutted road through Freehold. There wasn't anything but her and him, and he opened his eyes to look on her face, to fix it in his mind forever.”
Diana Gabaldon, Written in My Own Heart's Blood

Ernest Hemingway
“I have noticed that doctors who fail in the practice of medicine have a tendency to seek one another's company and aid in consultation.”
Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms

Luis Carlos Montalván
“A few days later, Tuesday quietly crossed our apartment as I read a book and, after a nudge against my arm, put his head on my lap. As always, I immediately checked my mental state, trying to assess what was wrong. I knew a change in my biorhythms had brought Tuesday over, because he was always monitoring me, but I couldn't figure out what it was. Breathing? Okay. Pulse? Normal. Was I glazed or distracted? Was I lost in Iraq? Was a dark period descending? I didn't think so, but I knew something must be wrong, and I was starting to worry...until I looked into Tuesday's eyes. They were staring at me softly from under those big eyebrows, and there was nothing in them but love.”
Luis Carlos Montalván, Until Tuesday: A Wounded Warrior and the Golden Retriever Who Saved Him

Toba Beta
“When you saw a wounded who cry out for help,
you may be the one sent by God to bring a favor.”
Toba Beta, My Ancestor Was an Ancient Astronaut

Walt Whitman
“Agonies are one of my changes of garments,
I do not ask the wounded person how he feels, I myself become
the wounded person,
My hurts turn livid upon me as I lean on a cane and observe.”
Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

Peter S. Beagle
“If he had even blinked, she would have been gone; but he did not blink, and he held her, as he had learned to hold griffins and chimeras motionless with his steady gaze. Her bare feet wounded him deeper than any tusk or riving talon ever had, but he was a true hero.”
Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn

John L'Heureux
“What a strange thing it is to recognize a sound like the shriek of a wounded animal, when you've never heard the shriek of a wounded animal.”
John L'Heureux, An Honorable Profession: A Novel

Stéphane Audeguy
“One dead body required two men either to bury it or to transport it to the rear. A wounded soldier, on the other hand, immobilized five men for an indeterminate amount of time; and who knew whether it was even worth the effort.”
Stéphane Audeguy, The Theory of Clouds

“When the heart is broken or wounded, the cloud of tears is torn as well”
Ikechukwu Izuakor

Stephen Crane
“A wound gives strange dignity to him who bears it. Well men shy from his new and terrible majesty. It is as if the wounded man's hand is upon the curtain which hangs before the revelations of all existence - the meaning of ants, potentates, wars, cities, sunshine, snow, a feather dropped from a bird's wing; and the power of it sheds radiance upon a bloody form, and makes the other men understand sometimes that they are little. His comrades look at him with large eyes thoughtfully. Moreover, they fear vaguely that the weight of a finger upon him might send him headlong, precipitate the tragedy, hurl him at once into the dim, gray unknown.

("An Episode Of War")”
Stephen Crane, Short Shorts

John Connolly
“But he was wounded, and tired, and winter was still upon him.”
John Connolly, The Wolf in Winter

Kathryn V. White
“Great depth of beingness and creativity often come with great woundedness.”
Kathryn V. White

“So... Dell had been a good boy with bad friends. I knew this – I used to be one of them. I’d always known Dell would disappear one day; he was too decent, too golden. This place never tainted that, and I don’t know why. He made me feel dirty. Dark and corrupt. It hadn’t always that way, and I don’t know when it changed... but I felt it now. I only knew I couldn’t hold onto him tight enough to stop those long legs carrying him away somewhere better.
A day’ll come when everybody’s had you and nobody wants you anymore...
As Dell drove Erin away in their rent-a-car from the Holiday Inn into the early evening traffic, I felt the walls closing in, the world swelling around me, and I knew that day had finally come. Tomorrow, I leave Paradise. It’s true. Shanise was right.
I turned away as the car disappeared up the slushy street.
That was the last time I saw them alive.”
H. Alazhar, City of Paradise

“Safety" and "fairness" are the preoccupation of the wounded. "Being" and "joy" are the unconscious realities of the free and living.”
Mea McMahon, Observation on Christianity

Criss Jami
“A man of God has many brothers. He is a wounded soldier - he is familiar with the pain one feels in his heart, as a close and loving brother, when a brother falls victim of evil men or turns to evil desires (the latter sometimes even betrayal). Because of this, too, he is and must be well-acquainted with and trained in the strengths of hope and the gentleness of forgiveness and mercy.”
Criss Jami
