A Quote by Wayne K. Tolson on savour, real, pain, flavour, and taste

Think of me tonite
For that which you savor
Did it give you something real,
or could you taste the pain of my death in its flavor?

A Quote by Dave Matthews on pain and place


My heart calls to me in my sleep
How can I turn to it
'Cause I'm all locked up in this
Dark place - and I do not know
I'm good as dead
My head aches - warped and tied up
I need to kill this pain

My head won't leave my head alone
And I don't believe it will
'Till I'm dead and gone
My head won't leave my head alone
And I don't believe it will
'Till I'm six feet under ground

Dave Matthews

A Quote by Edna St. Vincent Millay on life, pain, and self

And must I then, indeed, Pain, live with you
All through my life? - sharing my fire, my bed,
Sharing - oh, worst of all things! - the same head? -
And, when I feed myself, feeding you, too?

Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892 - 1950)

A Quote by unknown on god, pain, oppression, joy, difference, believe, bless, and work

May God bless you with discomfort at easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships, so that you may live deep within your heart. May God bless you with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, so that you may work for justice, freedom, and peace. May God bless you with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation, and war, so that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and to turn their pain into joy. And may God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this world, so that you can do what others claim cannot be done.

A Quote by Emily Dickinson on consciousness, eternity, pain, sea, and time

You left me boundaries of pain
Capacious as the sea,
Between eternity and time,
Your consciousness and me.

A Quote by Matthew Fox on pain and illusion

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.

A Quote by Lindsay Wagner on healing and pain

A lot of people say they want to get out of pain, and I'm sure that's true, but they aren't willing to make healing a high priority. They aren't willing to look inside to see the source of their pain in order to deal with it.

A Quote by Kedar on god, man, humanity, sin, pain, misery, religion, christ, krishna, questioner, philosophy, semi-solipsism, vanity, vile, existence, and uqv theory

If God were to exist for the entire humanity, he would be profoundly vile, as he allows the existence of unfathomable sin, stupidity, madness, and misery for no reason than his own despicable enjoyment. God exists though, not for all humanity, but for a one chosen man - a philosopher - who is bound to answer the greatest philosophical question, the question about the nature of the questioner's existence, which progressively quenches the divine vanity.

A Quote by Emmylou Harris on pain, stars, and universe

Like falling stars from the universe we are hurled
Down through the long loneliness of the world
Until we behold the pain, become the pearl
