Pain quotes
Pain
Remorse is the pain of sin.

- Parker, Theodore
How many people eat, drink, and get married; buy, sell, and build; make contracts and attend to their fortune; have friends and enemies, pleasures and pains, are born, grow up, live and dieóbut asleep!

- Joseph Joubert
SCARIFICATION, n. A form of penance practised by the mediaeval pious. The rite was performed, sometimes with a knife, sometimes with a hot iron, but always, says Arsenius Asceticus, acceptably if the penitent spared himself no pain nor harmless disfigurement. Scarification, with other crude penances, has now been superseded by benefaction. The founding of a library or endowment of a university is said to yield to the penitent a sharper and more lasting pain than is conferred by the knife or iron, and is therefore a surer means of grace. There are, however, two grave objections to it as a penitential method: the good that it does and the taint of justice.

- Ambrose Bierce
No one has ever written, painted, sculpted, modeled, built, or invented except literally to get out of hell.

- Artaud, Antonin
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 despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.

- Aeschylus
The trouble with born-again Christians is that they are an even bigger pain the second time around.

- Herb Caen
The prelude to Tristan and Isolde reminds me of the Italian painting of the martyr whose intestines are slowly being unwound from his body on a reel.

- Eduard Hanslick
I paint things as they are. I don't comment. I record.

- Lautrec, Henri De Toulouse
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.

- Eliot, George
One of the effects of a safe and civilized life is an immense oversensitiveness which makes all the primary emotions somewhat disgusting. Generosity is as painful as meanness, gratitude as hateful as ingratitude.

- Orwell, George
O Lord our God, help us to tear their soldiers to bloody shreds with our shells; help us to cover their smiling fields with the pale forms of their patriot dead; help us to drown the thunder of the guns with the shrieks of their wounded, writhing in pain; help us to lay waste their humble homes with a hurricane of fire; help us to wring the hearts of their unoffending widows with unavailing grief... for our sakes who adore Thee, Lord, blast their hopes, blight their lives, protract their bitter pilgrimage, make heavy their steps, water their way with their tears, stain the white snow with the blood of their wounded feet! We ask it, in the spirit of love, of Him Who is the Source of Love, and Who is the ever-faithful refuge and friend of all that are sore beset and seek His aid with humble and contrite hearts. Amen.

- Twain, Mark
The two elements the traveler first captures in the big city are extra human architecture and furious rhythm. Geometry and anguish. At first glance, the rhythm may be confused with gaiety, but when you look more closely at the mechanism of social life and the painful slavery of both men and machines, you see that it is nothing but a kind of typical, empty anguish that makes even crime and gangs forgivable means of escape.

- Lorca, Federico Garcia
Some people imagine that nuclear war will mean instant and painless death. But for millions this will not be the case. The accounts of the injured at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and of the doctors who tried to tend them, witness to the horrors and torments which would be magnified thousands of times over in the kinds of attack we analyse here. . .

- Stan Openshaw - Doomsday
If more than ten percent of the population likes a painting it should be burned, for it must be bad.

- George Bernard Shaw
Where painting is weakest, namely, in the expression of the highest moral and spiritual ideas, there music is sublimely strong.

- Mrs. Stowe
Illness is the doctor to whom we pay most heed; to kindness, to knowledge we make promise only; pain we obey.

- Proust, Marcel
Scorching my seared heart with a pain, not hell shall make me fear again.

- Edgar Allan Poe
If we divine a discrepancy between a man's words and his character, the whole impression of him becomes broken and painful; he revolts the imagination by his lack of unity, and even the good in him is hardly accepted.

- Cooley, Charles Horton
To place oneself in the position of God is painful: being God is equivalent to being tortured. For being God means that one is in harmony with all that is, including the worst. The existence of the worst evils is unimaginable unless God willed them.

- Bataille, Georges
No one has ever said it, but how painfully true it is that the poor have us always with them.

- Munro, Hector Hugh
