Rudyard Kipling
“We had a kettle; we let it leak:
Our not repairing made it worse.
We haven't had any tea for a week...
The bottom is out of the Universe.”
Rudyard Kipling, The Collected Poems of Rudyard Kipling

Alexandra Katehakis
“The process of dissociation is an elegant mechanism built into the human psychological system as a form of escape from (sometimes literally) going crazy. The problem with checking out so thoroughly is that it can leave us feeling dead inside, with little or no ability to feel our feelings in our bodies. The process of repair demands a re-association with the body, a commitment to dive into the body and feel today what we couldn’t feel yesterday because it was too dangerous.”
Alexandra Katehakis, Mirror of Intimacy: Daily Reflections on Emotional and Erotic Intelligence

Lynn Johnston

A.J. Darkholme
“Trust is not a gasoline-soaked blanket that succumbs to the matches of betrayal, never able to be used for its warmth again; it’s a tapestry that wears thin in places, but can be patched over if you have the right materials, circumstances, and patience to repair it. If you don’t, you’re always the one who feels the coldest when winter comes.”
A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

Israelmore Ayivor

Hanya Yanagihara
“If I were a different kind of person, I might say that this whole incident is a metaphor for life in general: things get broken, and sometimes they get repaired, and in most cases, you realise that no matter what gets damaged, life rearranges itself to compensate for your loss, sometimes wonderfully.
"Actually - maybe I am that kind of person after all.”
Hanya Yanagihara, A Little Life

Will Advise
“To fix hearts one must know one's own.”
Will Advise

“Our REM sleep in 90-minute bursts, in a 24 hour cycle "digests" trauma that is experienced on a daily basis. In dreaming, the brain compares the trauma with early memory traces of similar experience, and files the memories of the day's events according to an affect-based associative system for further use and potential survival value. Comforting figures may appear in the dream to give care, advice, counsel, and relief, if necessary. The nightly dream process helps the dreamer receive positive resolution of his or her experience, and the dreamer moves on to the next day's activities restored, refreshed, and prepared for survival-based action.”
Marion F. Solomon, Healing Trauma: Attachment, Mind, Body and Brain

Steven Magee
“Almost everything is fixable.”
Steven Magee

“New evidence (2002) indicates that reparative adult experiences enable those with attachment traumas to increase their ability to cope with stress and restore a sense of security. Healing through new relationships occurs frequently, and makes a person who has experienced trauma increase the ability to cope with stress and negative affect. Religious or 12-step experiences, therapeutic experiences, and intimate relationships all offer possibilities for repair.”
Marion F. Solomon, Healing Trauma: Attachment, Mind, Body and Brain

“We work in a broad assortment of settings like where quality fencing and fencing installation are required. Most ornamental steel fence repairs can be done on site but many ornate entry gate has to be brought to our fabrication facility to be properly repaired. Updating every aspect of your garden to match your new fencing is recommended, as new fence panels frequently draw attention to the older worn out areas of your outdoor area if it is not updated to a similar standard.”
Josh Wilson

“All kinds of workshop, service, repair and parts manuals are”

Steven Magee
“If you were repeatedly taking your broken television to a repair shop for the same fault, you would be annoyed. Unfortunately, millions of sick people are having a similar experience with their doctors visits for their ailing health. Lots of visits for the same problems that never get fixed.”
Steven Magee

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“The last time I saw it, its hull was crushed and it laid helpless against the incessant swells that rolled up upon the shallows within which it laid canted and broken. Yet, in the hands of a seasoned sailor who saw potential in the carnage, it was hauled out the swells, lovingly repaired, and the next year it pushed out past the swells that had held it helpless and it sailed again. And although our hulls are crushed beyond hope of repair and we find ourselves helplessly awash in the incessant swells of our sin, with God we too can sail again.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Gift Gugu Mona, Daily Quotes about God: 365 Days of Heavenly Inspiration

“Somewhere in the teachings of every wisdom tradition on earth is the admonition to “make whole that which is broken.” In Judaism, it is tikkun olam, “repair of the world.” It is said that in the eyes of God, an object that has been repaired is more holy than one that is new. There is an interpretation in Judaism of the world as we see it and of how it came to be; it is a retelling of the Genesis story by the sixteenth-century mystic Isaac Luria. In his vision, Luria saw that God filled the entire universe completely and perfectly and that the world could only be created by somehow making a space for life. Luria imagined that God contracted, like a series of containers within containers, and by becoming smaller and smaller, God allowed a new creation to emerge. When the enormous energy and potential of that creation finally exploded outward, sparks of the divine scattered throughout the universe: the universe we see. The teachings that follow from this, in the wisdom tradition of the Kabbalah, tell us that we are to gather the shards and the sparks and bring them back together. This is the meaning of tikkun olam. Olam, or “world,” comes from the same root as hidden, and so the repair we are asked to accomplish requires that we see the sacred hidden within the ordinary — the wholeness that exists in all things, everywhere.”
John Wackman, Repair Revolution: How Fixers Are Transforming Our Throwaway Culture

“how we proceed with repair depends on how we remember”

“The Nail Hole Diaries

I didn't realize... how terrified some women are of devaluing their homes by making a nail hole in the wall. Part of me wants to scream, "It's a ding-a-ling nail hole in the wall! Is there anything in life less risky that creating a one-millimeter hole in a wall that can be filled with your finger and some putty in two seconds?" A nail hole is the easiest repair.”
Myquillyn Smith, The Nesting Place: It Doesn't Have to Be Perfect to Be Beautiful

“Maturity, understanding, sensibility is that tools which can repair worst situations & relationship.”
