Bo Sánchez
“We are all wounded. But wounds are necessary for his healing light to enter into our beings. Without wounds and failure and frustrations and defeats, there will be no opening for his brilliance to tickle in and invade our lives. Failures in life are courses with very high tuition fees, so I don't cut classes and miss my lessons: on humility, on patience, on hope, on asking others for help, on listening to God, on trying again and again and again.”
Bo Sanchez, You Have The Power to Create Love: Take Another Step on the Simple Path to Happiness

“You can run away from yourself so often, and so much, just because the broken pieces of you cut your feet too deeply if you stay around for too long. But then what if someone were to come along and pick up those pieces for you? Then you wouldn't have to run away from yourself anymore. You could stop running. If someone sees you as something worth staying with— maybe you'll stay with yourself, too.”
C. JoyBell C.

Vance Havner
“God uses broken things. It takes broken soil to produce a crop, broken clouds to give rain, broken grain to give bread, broken bread to give strength. It is the broken alabaster box that gives forth perfume. It is Peter, weeping bitterly, who returns to greater power than ever.”
Vance Havner

Paula Hawkins

Paula Hawkins , The Girl on the Train

Paula McLain, The Paris Wife

Huseyn Raza
“My dearest friend Abigail, These probably could be the last words I write to you and I may not live long enough to see your response but I truly have lived long enough to live forever in the hearts of my friends. I thought a lot about what I should write to you. I thought of giving you blessings and wishes for things of great value to happen to you in future; I thought of appreciating you for being the way you are; I thought to give sweet and lovely compliments for everything about you; I thought to write something in praise of your poems and prose; and I thought of extending my gratitude for being one of the very few sincerest friends I have ever had. But that is what all friends do and they only qualify to remain as a part of the bunch of our loosely connected memories and that's not what I can choose to be, I cannot choose to be lost somewhere in your memories. So I thought of something through which I hope you will remember me for a very long time. I decided to share some part of my story, of what led me here, the part we both have had in common. A past, which changed us and our perception of the world. A past, which shaped our future into an unknown yet exciting opportunity to revisit the lost thoughts and to break free from the libido of our lost dreams. A past, which questioned our whole past. My dear, when the moment of my past struck me, in its highest demonised form, I felt dead, like a dead-man walking in flesh without a soul, who had no reason to live any more. I no longer saw any meaning of life but then I saw no reason to die as well. I travelled to far away lands, running away from friends, family and everyone else and I confined myself to my thoughts, to my feelings and to myself. Hours, days, weeks and months passed and I waited for a moment of magic to happen, a turn of destiny, but nothing happened, nothing ever happens. I waited and I counted each moment of it, thinking about every moment of my life, the good and the bad ones. I then saw how powerful yet weak, bright yet dark, beautiful yet ugly, joyous yet grievous; is a one single moment. One moment makes the difference. Just a one moment. Such appears to be the extreme and undisputed power of a single moment. We live in a world of appearance, Abigail, where the reality lies beyond the appearances, and this is also only what appears to be such powerful when in actuality it is not. I realised that the power of the moment is not in the moment itself. The power, actually, is in us. Every single one of us has the power to make and shape our own moments. It is us who by feeling joyful, celebrate for a moment of success; and it is also us who by feeling saddened, cry and mourn over our losses. I, with all my heart and mind, now embrace this power which lies within us. I wish life offers you more time to make use of this power. Remember, we are our own griefs, my dear, we are our own happinesses and we are our own remedies.

Take care!

Love,
Francis.

“To be unbroken, what would that be?
If words that were spoken, had not shattered me”
ZOEgirl, Zoegirl - Different Kind of Free

C. JoyBell C.
“A broken soul is not the absence of beauty, but a cracked and torn soul reeks of the sweet incense it contains.”
C. JoyBell C.

“We are all broken and wounded in this world. Some choose to grow strong at the broken places.”
Harold J. Duarte-Bernhardt

Jenny Offill
“This is another way in which he is an admirable person. If he notices something is broken, he will try to fix it. He won’t just think about how unbearable it is that things keep breaking, that you can never fucking outrun entropy.”
Jenny Offill, Dept. of Speculation

C. JoyBell C.
“I am a broken person. And I know exactly where my cracks are and how deep they run. I don't pretend to not be a broken person and therein lies the big difference. Because the truth is, we are all broken in places, but it is those who know exactly where and how they are broken, who also know exactly where and how they are whole! And we may not be whole in all places and in all ways, but we take whatever wholeness that we do have, and we make good of it. And we try hard to work on the broken parts, and we ask for help when we need it.”
C. JoyBell C.

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“And in the end, we were all just humans.. drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald

B.A. Paris
“I look around at everybody laughing and joking together and struggle to understand my life has become a living hell that nobody present could even begin to imagine”
B.A. Paris, Behind Closed Doors

Gene Edwards
“David was caught in a very uncomfortable position; however, he seemed to grasp a deep understanding of the unfolding drama in which he had been caught. He seemed to understand something that few of even the wisest men of his day understood. Something that in our day, when men are wiser still, even fewer understand.

And what was that?

God did not have - but wanted very much to have - men and women who would live in pain.

God wanted a broken vessel.”
Gene Edwards, A Tale of Three Kings

Gene Edwards

Criss Jami
“All individuals have moral deficiencies, and when introducing these to reality one not only strengthens himself but also the confidence of others in the human exigency for Christ due to a reflection throughout the body of Christ.”
Criss Jami, Salomé: In Every Inch In Every Mile

Dave Rudbarg
“The journey of reinvention is one of raw emotions
Emerging from dormancy
Surprising as a paper cut
Overwhelming as a hailstorm
One part vulnerability
One part rage
One part surrender
Uncomfortable
Unfamiliar
Unsure
Fearful
Alone
Damaged
Broken
And finding a new Self
Slowly
Different
Healing
Humble
Present
Open
Longing
Free”
Dave Rudbarg

Keanu Reeves
“If you have been brutally broken, but still have the courage to be gentle to other living beings, then you’re a badass with the heart of an angel.”
Keanu Reeves

Kemi Sogunle
“If you spend time judging and criticizing people, you will not have time to heal from your pain or brokenness. You cannot love yourself when you judge or criticize others who are created in God's image and after His Likeness...in which you are also created. Love cannot operate from a space of pain. Love and hurt cannot reside in the same space.”
Kemi Sogunle, Beyond the Pain by Kemi Sogunle

Jalina Mhyana
“He’s always been attracted to broken things. He was the kind of boy who talked the bad girls through their problems, who defended them and didn’t take advantage. He was sensitive to his stuffed animals’ feelings, rotating their position on his bed so that a new plush animal would occupy pride of place at his pillowside every night. Soon I became first and foremost on that pillow; princess of the island of misfit toys.”
Jalina Mhyana, Dreaming in Night Vision: A Story in Vignettes

“love is a lie.”
Wahid Bhat

“In the end, that was what hurt me the most, because when love becomes impossible, we have only one alternative. Love in silence. Cry in silence. In secret.”
Wahid Bhat

“At that time I wanted nothing more than to take heart from my memories.”
Wahid Bhat

Linda Hoye
“For years, I shied away from those who seem to have it all together, because I didn’t. Then I
learned that underneath the façade we’re all broken.”
Linda Hoye, The Presence of Absence: A Story About Busyness, Brokenness, and Being Beloved

Linda Hoye
“When I see you in your brokenness, I feel safe enough to reveal a bit of my own, and before you
know it, we slip our masks aside and see each other real face to real face.”
Linda Hoye, The Presence of Absence: A Story About Busyness, Brokenness, and Being Beloved

“Отново онова откачено усещане ме кара да се приближа до тях и не спирам, докато мирисът на изгоряло не ме обзема така, че да извърна поглед встрани. Нещо наистина не е наред дори с тях и мога да се закълна, че ако не е миризмата, когато се приближа ще видя съвсем ясно пукнатини. Макар че материалът, от който са направени изглежда ужасно здрав, приличат на вази, чупени многократно, а после залепяни, определено с не същия ентусиазъм. Обикновено си втълпяваш, че никой няма да забележи, но всъщност всичко се вижда, всичко е на показ. При всяко нещо е така: счупеното си остава счупено, колкото и да се опитваш да го прикриеш.”
Йоана Йорданова, Звезден мрак
