10 Pain Quotes from Literature

For pain must enter into its glorified life of memory before it can turn into compassion. ~ Middlemarch by George Eliot "Hardships make or break people." ~ Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell Power is in inflicting pain and humiliation. Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing. ~ Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell In the face of pain there are no heroes. ~ Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell And in being forced to class herself among the fortunate she did not cease to wonder at the persistence of the unforeseen, when the one to whom such unbroken tranquility had been accorded in the adult stage was she whose youth had seemed to teach that happiness was but the occasional episode in a general drama of pain. ~ The Mayor of Casterbridge by Thomas Hardy As the pain that can be told is but half a pain, so the pity that questions has little healing in its touch. ~ The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton There is little proportion about either pain or pleasure: a headache darkens the universe while it lasts, a cup of tea really lightens the spirit bereft of all reasonable consolations. ~ Their Wedding Journey by William Dean Howells Joy and grief were mingled in the cup; but there were no bitter tears: for even grief itself arose so softened, and clothed in such sweet and tender recollections, that it became a solemn pleasure, and lost all character of pain. ~ Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens There are accents in the eye which are not on the tongue, and more tales come from pale lips than can enter an ear. It is both the grandeur and the pain of the remoter moods that they avoid the pathway of sound. ~ Far From The Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy He covered page after page with wild words of sorrow and wilder words of pain. There is a luxury in self-reproach. When we blame ourselves, we feel that no one else has a right to blame us. It is the confession, not the priest, that gives us absolution. ~ The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
