“Just remember, loss is imaginary. Nothing ever disappears in the universe; it only changes form. If there is something that still wounds you, it’s because of the meaning that you have linked to it. Maybe what you need to do is to have faith and say, ‘Even though I don’t know why this has happened, I am willing to trust. Someday, when the time is right, I will understand.'” ~ Anthony Robbins, Awaken the Giant Within
“Pain is not a punishment. And pleasure is not a reward. You could argue that failure is not punishment and… Success is not reward. They’re just failure and success. You can choose how you respond.” ~ Sarah Lewis, The Rise
“I started to assess how much of the pain was real and physical and how much of it was created by my mind and my perception of the pain. I soon realized that it was not the actual pain that was hurting me the most, no, it was the monster I was creating in my head from the pain.” ~ Mahyar Hassid, High Existence
“Life is painful. It has thorns, like the stem of a rose. Culture and art are the roses that bloom on the stem. The flower is yourself, your humanity. Art is the liberation of the humanity inside yourself.” ~ Daisaku Ikeda
“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive.” ~ James Baldwin
“We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey.” ~ Kenji Miyazawa
“We need to see pain in the right light; we need to contextualize it and develop a proper attitude toward life, one of self-mastery, creation, and ultimately a kind of playfulness. Then, each individual failure, each accident will be redeemed within the greater context of a successful life, a life of one’s own making.” ~ Jacob Held
“We can’t escape pain; we can’t escape the essential nature of our lives. But we do have a choice. We can give in and relent, or we can fight, persevere, and crete a life worth living, a noble life. Pain is a fact; our evaluation of it is a choice.” ~ Jacob Held
“There are two types of Pain in this world: Pain that hurts you and Pain that changes you!” ~ Unknown
“Pain is inevitable, it eventually touches us all. Suffering is optional.” ~ Sean Stephenson
“When you feel pain, you know that you are still alive.” ~ Bruce Lee
“The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful is the man who will win.” ~ Roger Bannister
