When you let go of past pain, believe in yourself, and follow your dreams—you can find true happiness!
- Casi McLean
To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain and play with it.
- Charlie Chaplin
There’s nothing more painful than remembering something happy while you are distressed.
- Dante Alighieri
If carefully seen, when shocked or hurt, if you are able to express your feelings,
you are relieved of it and the same when mistakenly suppressed; then that pain
in its perverted form becomes your destiny.
- Deep Trivedi
Speak not harshly to anyone. Those thus addressed will retort. Painful, indeed, is vindictive speech. Blows in exchange may bruise you.
There is the solitude of suffering, when you go through darkness that is lonely, intense, and terrible. Words become powerless to express your pain; what others hear from your words is so distant and different from what you are actually suffering.
- John O'donohue
Pain and joy are like light and darkness; they are two sides of the same medal. They are interdependent and inseparably connected to each other.
- Trinley Thaye Dorje
Pure and complete sorrow is as impossible as pure and complete joy.
- Leo Tolstoy
Isn't it funny that we never look into the lives of the great people whom we
worship, to dispel the miseries from our life and see, how much pain they have
endured in their life. The truth is, we fail to understand one simple and basic
fact that as long as there is life, there will be pain; no matter however great the
person may be... Their greatness is not in having a life without hardship but
because of their ability to remain cheerful even when surrounded by miseries.
- Deep Trivedi
Pain reaches the heart with electrical speed, but truth moves to the heart as slowly as a glacier.
- Barbara Kingsolver
