Tossed on the waves of our emotions, we forget that we are the sea.
“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, it lasts forever.” ~Lance Armstrong
“Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.”
“Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding. Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain. And could you keep your heart in wonder at the daily miracles of your life, your pain would not seem less wondrous than your joy; And you would accept the seasons of your heart, even as you have always accepted the seasons that pass over your fields. And you would watch with serenity through the winters of your grief.” ~Kahlil Gibran
“Pain was not given thee merely to be miserable under; learn from it, turn it to account.”
