  75. “You say that love is nonsense. I tell you it is no such thing.

  76. “If it’s physical pain, you just deal with it the best way you can. But if it’s more emotional, I don’t know. I just try my best to feel it, take it in, and just allow myself to go through whatever may actually come from it. And then a certain amount of it, you can use to transform it through art, which is the healthy way of dealing with it, as well.” – Reggie Watts


  77. “Pain is a relatively objective, physical phenomenon; suffering is our psychological resistance to what happens. Events may create physical pain, but they do not in themselves create suffering.

  78. “Pain nourishes courage. You can’t be brave if you’ve only had wonderful things happen to you. Pain is inevitable. Misery is optional. Physical pain is a fact that comes with living, just as illness or financial woes or broken relationships are facts. But misery is a state of mind, a reaction to the facts, that can be controlled or altered by an act of will.” – Barbara


  79. “Being human, we would expel from our lives physical pain and mental anguish and assure ourselves of continual ease and comfort, but if we were to close the doors upon sorrow and distress, we might be excluding our greatest friends and benefactors. Suffering can make saints of people as they learn patience, long-suffering, and self-mastery.” – Spencer W. Kimball


  80. “Mild depression is a gradual and sometimes permanent thing that undermines people the way rust weakens iron… Like physical pain that becomes chronic, it is miserable not so much because it is intolerable in the moment as because it is intolerable to have known it in the moments gone and to look forward only to knowing it in the moments to come.” – Andrew Solomon


  81. “There is no physical pain, no spiritual wound, no anguish of soul or heartache, no infirmity or weakness you or I ever confront in mortality that the Savior did not experience first. In a moment of weakness we may cry out, “No one knows what it is like. No one understands.” But the Son of God perfectly knows and understands, for He has felt and borne our individual burdens.” – David A. Bednar


  82. “One whose spirit and mental strength have been strengthened by sparring with a never-say-die attitude should find no challenge too great to handle. One who has undergone long years of physical pain and mental agony to learn one punch, one kick, should be able to face any task, no matter how difficult, and carry it through to the end. A person like this can truly be said to have learned karate.” – Gichin Funakoshi


  83. “Do you want a sign that you’re asleep? Here it is: you’re suffering. Suffering is a sign that you’re out of touch with the truth. Suffering is given to you that you might open your eyes to the truth, that you might understand that there’s falsehood somewhere, just as physical pain is given to you so you will understand that there is disease or illness somewhere. Suffering occurs when you clash with reality. When your illusions clash with reality, when your falsehoods clash with truth, then you have suffering. Otherwise there is no suffering.” – Anthony de Mello


  84. “It’s hard to explain to someone who has no idea of the daily struggles you face. Feeling pain, feeling unwell, feeling awful om the inside whilst looking perfectly fine on the outside. Putting on a brave face for everyone. Please share this on your status if you, or someone close to you, has an invisible illness. There are many forms – Chron’s, PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, Diabetes, Lupus, Fybromyalgia, MS, ME, Arthritis, Cancer, Heart Disease, Epilepsy, Autism, Alzheimer’s and the many other types of invisible illness coped with daily. Never judge what you don’t understand.”


  85. “Sometimes, this disapproval of how you are managing your pain crosses over to disbelief that you are in as much pain as you say you are. They don’t believe that your pain is a legitimate enough reason to rest or nap or cry or take narcotic medications or not go to work or to go to the doctor. They might think that you are making too big of a deal out of it. They doubt the legitimacy of the pain itself. This kind of stigma is the source of the dreaded accusation that chronic pain is “all in your head.” It’s as if to say that you are making a mountain out of a molehill.” – Murray J. McAlister
