What is the worst pain? To me, it’s always the pain that is present.

Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire

The only thing more painful than being an active forgetter is to be an inert rememberer.

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one’s heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.

The Road, Cormac McCarthy

Pain is like fabric: The stronger it is, the more it’s worth.

John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

‘Without pain, how could we know joy?’ This is an old argument in the field of thinking about suffering and its stupidity and lack of sophistication could be plumbed for centuries but suffice it to say that the existence of broccoli does not, in any way, affect the taste of chocolate.

John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

‘Lost’ holds a very special place in people’s hearts and I wouldn’t presume to say that ‘FlashForward’ will replace ‘Lost.’ I think it provides a lot of the same adrenaline and fascination and entertainment. It will help ease the pain of losing ‘Lost!’ I think it will appeal to the very same audience.

Sonya Walger

Pain is only relevant if it still hurts.

Ed Sheeran

Without pain, there would be no suffering, without suffering we would never learn from our mistakes. To make it right, pain and suffering is the key to all windows, without it, there is no way of life.

Angelina Jolie

We all make jokes to hide our pain.

Dexter Morgan, Darkly Dreaming Dexter

Surgery won’t improve your pain.

Depeche Mode, Shame
