Stephen King
“Writers remember everything...especially the hurts. Strip a writer to the buff, point to the scars, and he'll tell you the story of each small one. From the big ones you get novels. A little talent is a nice thing to have if you want to be a writer, but the only real requirement is the ability to remember the story of every scar.
Art consists of the persistence of memory.”
Stephen King, Misery

Steve Goodier
“My scars remind me that I did indeed survive my deepest wounds. That in itself is an accomplishment. And they bring to mind something else, too. They remind me that the damage life has inflicted on me has, in many places, left me stronger and more resilient. What hurt me in the past has actually made me better equipped to face the present.”
Steve Goodier

Meša Selimović
“Everyone says love hurts, but that is not true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Envy hurts. Everyone gets these things confused with love, but in reality love is the only thing in this world that covers up all pain and makes someone feel wonderful again. Love is the only thing in this world that does not hurt.”
Meša Selimović

“Dear God

Please take away my pain and despair of yesterday and any unpleasant memories and replace them with Your glorious promise of new hope. Show me a fresh HS-inspired way of relating to negative things that have happened. I ask You for the mind of Christ so I can discern Your voice from the voice of my past. I pray that former rejection and deep hurts will not color what I see and hear now.

Help me to see all the choices I have ahead of me that can alter the direction of my life. I ask You to empower me to let go of the painful events and heartaches that would keep me bound. Thank You for Your forgiveness that You have offered to me at such a great price. Pour it into my heart so I can relinquish bitterness hurts and disappointments that have no place in my life. Please set me free to forgive those who have sinned against me and caused me pain and also myself. Open my heart to receive Your complete forgiveness and amazing grace. You have promised to bind up my wounds Psa 147:3 and restore my soul Psa 23:3 .

Help me to relinquish my past surrender to You my present and move to the future You have prepared for me. I ask You to come into my heart and make me who You would have me to be so that I might do Your will here on earth. I thank You Lord for all that’s happened in my past and for all I have become through those experiences. I pray You will begin to gloriously renew my present.”
Sue Augustine, When Your Past Is Hurting Your Present: Getting Beyond Fears That Hold You Back

Rick Warren
“Those who have hurt you in the past cannot continue to hurt you now unless you hold on to the pain through resentment.”
Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life: What on Earth Am I Here for?

Shannon L. Alder
“I don't understand women that call themselves a "bitch". It doesn't empower a woman. Rather, it reveals to everyone that you were deeply hurt at one time. Because of the pain your still carrying, you will continue to hurt anyone that reminds you of those moments when you let your guard down and were fooled. Sadly, it sends a clear message to the observant that you are still hurt. If only women would realize that "we all" have moments of stupidity then they would stop comparing themselves to the masses.”
Shannon L. Alder

Beau Taplin
“In the night, I am kept awake by the endless chatter of my inner self. I hear it speak softly of old hurts and fondly of past loves, while its demands and anxieties resound throughout me in multitudes.
I could be calm and composed all day long, but the moment it is dark, my mind riots.”
Beau Taplin

Marie Rutkoski
“She remembered how her heart, so tight, like a scroll, had opened when Arin kissed her.
It had unfurled.
If her heart were truly a scroll, she could burn it.
It would become a tunnel of flame, a handful of ash.
The secrets she had written inside herself would be gone. No one would know”
Marie Rutkoski, The Winner's Curse

Charlotte Eriksson
“I’m learning persistence and the closing of doors, the way the seasons come and go as I keep walking on these roads, back and forth, to find myself in new time zones, new arms with new phrases and new goals. And it hurts to become, hurts to find out about the poverty and gaps, the widow and the leavers. It hurts to accept that it hurts and it hurts to learn how easy it is for people to not need other people. Or how easy it is to need other people but that you can never build a home in someone’s arms because they will let go one day and you must build your own.”
Charlotte Eriksson, Another Vagabond Lost To Love: Berlin Stories on Leaving & Arriving

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

“At times it may seem as though you and your past are one. Sometimes we fail to differentiate between what has happened to us and who we are today. If you have a hard time getting beyond that damaging mind-set let me encourage you right now. You are not your past Although you are changed and shaped by past experiences who you were yesterday does not control the person you have the potential to become tomorrow.”
Sue Augustine, When Your Past Is Hurting Your Present: Getting Beyond Fears That Hold You Back

Rachel Van Dyken
“Because everyone knows, when it comes to love, it’s not the fall that hurts… it’s the landing.”
Rachel Van Dyken, Toxic

Guy Gavriel Kay
“Only then, invisible to everyone and with her curtains drawn, did she allow her tears to fall: in love, and for his hurts, and in terrible pride.”
Guy Gavriel Kay, Tigana

L.J. Smith
“I'm sorry Elena. I know that you want to help, but put yourself in her shoes, everything that happened tonight was to save you and that's OK because she loves you so much. But somehow she's always the one who gets hurt.”
L.J. Smith, Vreden och Återkomsten

Tionne Rogers
“I'll chase the demons away, Maus.”

“Love is knowing that your feet carry you to a painful place, and still go anyway.”
Mitta Xinindlu

Melanie A. Smith
“You can’t buy love. But you also can’t help who you fall in love with. You just have to be able to let yourself see them for who they really are, not just who you see them as. It’s hard, getting past your own perceptions, past the hurts that scar you along the way. But I think that’s the real lesson in life: being willing to revisit your assumptions before they keep you from living happily ever after.”
Melanie A. Smith, You Can't Buy Love

“True facts about people.

People are strangely create! They love even when it hurts. Forgive even if they hate! They appreciate and understand only when they lose!”
Corina Abdulahm Negura

“I won’t run an extra mile for our friendship if you don’t run for it at all”

Khuliso Mamathoni
“It hurts when you truly love someone and keep on doing your best to make your spouse happy but fails to recognize or appreciate the efforts. I wonder how Jesus feels when he sees us rejecting the love of the father.”
Khuliso Mamathoni, The Greatest Proposal

“If truth hurts, Ignorance is way better.”
Shrushti Anand

Lauren Groff
“Even still, we run. We have not reached our average of 57.92 years without knowing that you run through it, and it hurts and you run through it some more, and if it hurts worse, you run through it even more, and when you finish, you will have broken through. In the end, when you are done, and stretching, and your heartbeat slows, and your sweat dries, if you've run through the hard part, you will remember no pain.”
Lauren Groff, The Monsters of Templeton

“The more I was afraid of getting hurt, the more cautious I was, and this impacted my ability to deepen my relationships with others.”

Neelam Saxena Chandra

Neelam Saxena Chandra, The Soul Unbound

Steven Magee
“I would dive off the ten meter diving board at the swimming pool and it really hurts when you hit the water from that height!”
Steven Magee

Emanuela Cooper
“It is true that everything changes constantly and when it does it is the end of something, a little death. That’s why it hurts. But it is also true that when one door closes another one opens.”
Emanuela Cooper, Three Women Lost in London

Holly Black
“His gift is to take a compliment and turn it in to an insult, a jab that hurts more for the temptation to take it at face value.”
Holly Black, The Wicked King

Michael Bassey Johnson
