Ransom Riggs
“I wanted to thank you," I said.
She wrinkled her nose and squinted like I'd said something funny. "Thank me for what?" she said.
"You give me strength I didn't know I had,"; I said. "You make me better.”
Ransom Riggs, Hollow City

“I am no theologian, and do not have the answers to these questions, and one of the reasons I enjoy the animals on the farm so much is that they don't think about their pain, or question it, they accept it and endure it, true stoics. I have never heard a donkey or cow whine (although I guess dogs do).
I told my friend this: pain, like joy, is a gift. It challenges us, tests, defines us, causes us to grow, empathize, and also, to appreciate its absence. If nothing else, it sharpens the experience of joy. The minute something happens to me that causes pain, I start wondering how I can respond to it, what I can learn from it, what it has taught me or shown me about myself. This doesn't make it hurt any less, but it puts it, for me, on a more manageable level. I don't know if there is a God, or if he causes me or anybody else to hurt, or if he could stop pain. I try to accept it and live beyond it. I think the animals have taught me that.
The Problem of Pain is that it exists, and is ubiquitous. The Challenge of Pain is how we respond to it.”
Jon Katz

Marko Šelić
“Tu, mili, tu je sav problem. Ljudi uvek govore da nemaju kontrolu nad ponašanjem, ali to nije istina. Ono nad čime nemaš kontrolu je emocija. I nisi slab zato što osećaš ono što osećaš. Slab si u delu gde dopuštaš sebi verovanje da je tvoje ponašanje neizbežno i opravdano. Ako ti sam nećeš da prihvatiš koliko si razoren, da li je sasvim pošteno da tražiš od drugih da to prihvate?”
Marko Šelić, Rubikova stolica

Michael Bassey Johnson
“Don't show a friend your gift, or your bag of money if you still want to maintain your relationship, but if nay, go on, and all you'll see is hate and jealousy, and you'll fight with him in the street like a dog and all you'll feel is regret.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Santosh Avvannavar
