“The pain of an injury is over in seconds. Everything that comes after is the pain of getting well." He gave her a heartfelt look, full of apology. "I'd forgotten that you see. Coming back to life ... It hurts.”
Tessa Dare, Twice Tempted by a Rogue

Nick Hornby
“Those days are gone, and good fucking riddance to them; unhappiness really meant something back then. Now it's just a drag, like a cold or having no money. If you really wanted to mess me up, you should have got to me earlier.”
Nick Hornby, High Fidelity

Hiro: ... Yeah, I know.”
Ibuki Haneda, Koizora (Love Sky), Volume 1

I knew the bottom wasn't there,
Nor legs nor back, but I just sat,
Ignoring little things like that.”
Hughes Mearns
