“Truths and roses have thorns about them.”
“Never regret anything you have done with a sincere affection; nothing is lost that is born of the heart.”
“You never really stop loving someone, you just learn to try to live without them.”
“When you care for someone more than they deserve, you get hurt more than you deserve.”
“All suffering is caused by ignorance. People inflict pain on others in the selfish pursuit of their own happiness or satisfaction.”
“To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering.”
“Pain makes you stronger.
Fear makes you braver.
Heartbreak makes you wiser.”
Let the first act of every morning be to make the following resolve for the day:
I shall not fear anyone on Earth.
I shall fear only God.
I shall not bear ill will towards anyone.
I shall not submit to injustice from anyone.
I shall conquer untruth by truth. And in resisting untruth, I shall put up with all suffering.
Just because I am strong enough to handle pain, doesn’t mean I deserve it.
The worst kind of pain is when you are smiling just to stop the tears from falling down.
