You feel your strength in the experience of pain.

You feel your strength in the experience of pain.
Jim Morrison
Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.
Khalil Gibran
Pain in life is inevitable but suffering is not. Pain is what the world does to you, suffering is what you do to yourself [by the way you think about the ‘pain’ you receive]. Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional. [You can always be grateful that the pain is not worse in quality, quantity, frequency, duration, etc]
Gautama Buddha
Grief is neither a disorder nor a healing process; it is a sign of health itself, a whole and natural gesture of love. Nor must we see grief as a step toward something better. No matter how much it hurts-and it may be the greatest pain in life-grief can be an end in itself, a pure expression of love.
Gerald May
If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain.
Emily Dickinson
Pain in life is inevitable but suffering is not.
Gautama Buddha
You must make up your mind to the prospect of sustaining a certain measure of pain and trouble in you’r passage through life.
John Henry Newman
I don’t mind if people don’t like me. Well, I might a little … but I really mind it when somebody uses their position at Time magazine to tell 10 million people they don’t like me. I know what it’s like to have your private life painted in the worst possible light in front of a lot of people.
Steve Jobs
I am God’s vessel. But my greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live.
Kanye West
I would sell my life to avoid
the pain that begins in the crib
with its bars or perhaps
with your first breath
when the planets drill
your future into you.
Anne Sexton
Pain destroys the illusions of false, that is, elitist pleasures. It burns from the inside out. It, therefore, sensitizes us to what is truly beautiful in life.
Matthew Fox
Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain.
Jim Morrison
The pain of life is pure salt; no more, no less. The amount of pain in life remains the same, exactly the same. But the amount of bitterness we taste depends on the container we put the pain in. So when you are in pain, the only thing you can do is to enlarge your sense of thingsstop being a glass. Become a lake.
Mark Nepo
The thing that gave me the most pain in life, psychologically, and it gave me tremendous pain psychologically, is man’s disrespect for nature.
Joni Mitchell
There are two pains in life. There is the pain of discipline and the pain of disappointment. If you can handle the pain of discipline, then you’ll never have to deal with the pain of disappointment.
Nick Saban
You can’t avoid pain in life. It’s how you handle pain, that’s what defines you.
Marc Maron
truth outlives pain, as the soul does life.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
