Ann Aguirre
“So I make no effort to hide my pain. I don’t ever put it all on display like this—but for today and all the rest of the days of the trial, I must. My every flinch, every flicker of pain, will be
magnified a hundred times over, then dissected by the pundits and talking heads. But I’m told it’s necessary; the world needs to see me vulnerable and wounded. I cannot appear not to care or to lack remorse, but that removes a crucial component of my self- defense mechanism and leaves me bleeding for all the world to see. I suppose that’s rather the point.”
Ann Aguirre, Aftermath

Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn

“Love is vulnerable. Love is family. Love is Life. We hurt one another. We just do. But we also need one another. We all know hurt people hurt people. Wounded people lash out in anger and in fear. I like to call them porcupines. These are people who desperately want a hug, but if you dare hug them, you will probably be stabbed.”
jamie west zumwalt, Beloved Chaos: moving from religion to Love in a red light district

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“It is not a matter of being broken, even though I am in fact quite shattered. It is understanding that my capacity to be fixed always exceeds the extent to which I’m broken.”

Thornton Wilder
“Without your wounds where would your power be? It is your melancholy that makes your low voice tremble into the hearts of men and women. The very angels themselves cannot persuade the wretched and blundering children of this earth as can one human being broken on the wheels of living. In love’s service only wounded soldiers can serve.”
Thornton Wilder, The Angel That Troubled the Waters and Other

Barry Lyga
“...rarely do the 'significant events' in our lives change us. At least, not in any way we want. The people who suffer tragedy and go on to greatness? They're the stuff of movies and TV shows and books, and--only very rarely--real life. Most of us just go on, the walking wounded, dealing with our lives. This doesn't make us bad--it just means we're not superheroes. It means we're just people, like everyone else.”
Barry Lyga, Bang

L.R. Knost
“What if I told you that what the world needs right now is you - flawed, fumbling, wounded, trying-to-figure-it-all-out you? Because that's exactly what it needs, you know - more velveteen-real people who are a little worn and a little weary, but who bring a whole lot of warm and welcoming and wonderful to life.”
L.R. Knost

Grace  Gayle
“Unsless you are the rare exception, you will marry someone who is equally wounded or equally healed as you are.

Husna Mohammad, Saudade

Julian Barnes
“Once bitten, twice shy; twice bitten, forever shy.”
Julian Barnes, The Only Story

“In calm cold midwinter,
there was a starving hunter,
who lost his way in forest,
and had no food no shelter,
One day he woke of hunger,
and started walking faster,
he walked for miles and miles,
but nothing saw his eyes,
He trembled of an anger,
his hope forever died,
like thirsty bowing flower,
the poor hunter cried,
He started walking further,
then saw a wounded deer,
who lied near the river,
with so much pain to bear.
The deer was also hunted,
by hunter like this man,
her eyes were getting colder,
and filled with so much fear,
The hunter felt so pity,
of what he saw over there,
his sufferings were same as,
of which were of the deer,
And then they died together,
as reached the starving”
Neymat Khan

Iris Murdoch

Iris Murdoch, The Green Knight

Iris Murdoch
“Yet the love is there, the love is there — only it's as if it's so wounded it has curled up and gone into a black hole.”
Iris Murdoch, The Green Knight

Trebbe Johnson
“To see a place as orphaned or wounded is also to reexamine the meaning of living and dying and to allow some curiosity and even a sense of marvel to emerge about the tactics things employ to persevere.”
Trebbe Johnson, Radical Joy for Hard Times: Finding Meaning and Making Beauty in Earth's Broken Places

Lailah Gifty Akita
“Hate wound the heart.”
Lailah Gifty Akita

“Don’t judge someone else’s sensuality because it is different from yours. You don’t know what part of their soul has been wounded, or needs to be soothed or liberated, or what deep yearning they’re trying to meet. We all want to achieve complete soul-freedom. So don’t judge, instead be discerning so you can be enlightened.”
Lebo Grand
