Pain quotes

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep - pain that cannot forget; Falls drop by drop upon the heart, And in our own despite, against our will, Comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.

- Aeschylus

I am going to Spain to fight an army without a general, and thence to the East to fight a general without an army.

- Julius Caesar

There is no detachment where there is no pain. And there is no pain endured without hatred or lying unless detachment is present too.

- Weil, Simone

Painting in watercolor is like walking a tight-rope; one must achieve a perfect balance between what the paint wants to do and what the artist wants to do, or all is lost.

- Mary C. Taylor

Self-denial is painful for a moment, but very agreeable in the end.

- Taylor, Jane

Pain (any pain--emotional, physical, mental) has a message. The information it has about our life can be remarkably specific, but it usually falls into one of two categories: "We would be more alive if we did more of this," and, "Life would be more lovely if we did less of that." Once we get the pain's message, and follow its advice, the pain goes away.

- Peter McWilliams

You cannot slander human nature; it is worse than words can paint it.

- Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Strive daily and hourly to be calm; to stop yourself forcibly and recall your mind to a sense of what you are, where you are going, and whither you ought to be tending. This is most painful discipline, but most wholesome.

- MS. Letter. 1842.

Prefer a loss to dishonest gain; the one brings pain at the moment, the other for all time.

- Chilo

The attitude of unhappiness is not only painful, it is mean and ugly. What can be more base and unworthy than the pining, puling, mumping mood, no matter by what outward ills it may have been engendered? What is more injurious to others? What less helpful as a way out of the difficulty? It but fastens and perpetuates the trouble which occasioned it, and increases the total evil of the situation. At all costs, then, we ought to reduce the sway of that mood; we ought to scout it in ourselves and others, and never show it tolerance.

- James, William

Pain was their body's way of telling them that they'd pushed themselves to their limits -- which was exactly where they were supposed to be.

- Marcinko, Richard

The injuries that befall us unexpectedly are less severe than those which are deliberately anticipated.

- Cicero, Marcus T.

If there is pain in my life or something that is wrong. I try to go to that place in me and write from there. I donĘt necessarily write about the issue, but I write from the emotion.

- Jeneane Sessum

If you hear a voice within you saying, You are not a painter, then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.

- Gogh, Vincent Van

Fundamentalists are to Christianity what paint-by-numbers is to art.

- Robin Tyler

I have heard of your paintings too, well enough; God has given you one face, and you make yourselves another.

- William Shakespeare

People stress the violence. That's the smallest part of it. Football is brutal only from a distance. In the middle of it there's a calm, a tranquility. The players accept pain. There's a sense of order even at the end of a running play with bodies strewn everywhere. When the systems interlock, there's a satisfaction to the game that can't be duplicated. There's a harmony.

- Delillo, Don

Technique is really personality. That is the reason why the artist cannot teach it, why the pupil cannot learn it, and why the aesthetic critic can understand it. To the great poet, there is only one method of music -- his own. To the great painter, there is only one manner of painting -- that which he himself employs. The aesthetic critic, and the aesthetic critic alone, can appreciate all forms and all modes. It is to him that Art makes her appeal.

- Wilde, Oscar

It is, indeed, at home that every man must be known by those who would make a just estimate either of his virtue or felicity; for smiles and embroidery are alike occasional, and the mind is often dressed for show in painted honor, and fictitious benevolence.

- Johnson, Samuel

A bitter jest, a slander, a calumny, pierceth deeper than any loss, danger, bodily pain, or injury whatsoever.

- Robert Burton
