pain quotes

#202 Albert Einstein

Everything that men do or think concerns the satisfaction of the needs they feel or the escape from pain. This must be kept in mind when we seek to understand spiritual or intellectual movements and the way in which they develop. For feelings and longings are the motive forces of all human striving and productivity—however nobly these latter may display themselves to us. .

Albert Einstein Quotes about pain

Bertrand Russell Quotes about pain
#1623 Oscar Wilde

The home seems to me to be the proper sphere for the man. And certainly once a man begins to neglect his domestic duties he becomes painfully effeminate, does he not? .

Oscar Wilde Quotes about pain
#1691 Oscar Wilde

For what man has sought for is, indeed, neither pain nor pleasure, but simply Life. Man has sought to live intensely, fully, perfectly. When he can do so without exercising restraint on others, or suffering it ever, and his activities are all pleasurable to him, he will be saner, healthier, more civilised, more himself. Pleasure is Nature's test, her sign of approval. When man is happy, he is in harmony with himself and his environment. .

Oscar Wilde Quotes about pain
#3239 Henry Ford

Henry Ford Quotes about pain
#3497 George Bernard Shaw

There have been summits ofat which heretics like , who was killed because he was wiser than his neighbors, have not been tortured, but ordered to kill themselves in the most painless manner known to their judges. But from that summit there was a speedy relapse into our present savagery. .

George Bernard Shaw Quotes about pain
#3590 Douglas Adams

In fact the only thing that I don't like about Whisky, is that if I take the merest sip of the stuff, it sends a sharp pain from the back of my left eyeball down to the tip of my right elbow, and I begin to walk in a very special way, bumping into people and snarling at the furniture. I have therefore learned to turn my attention to other tipples. Margaritas, I'm very fond of, but they make me buy very stupid things. When ever I've had a few margaritas I always wake up in the morning with a sense of dread as to what I will find downstairs. The worst was a 6ft long pencil and a 2ft wide India rubber that I had shipped over from New York, as a result of one injudicious binge. .

Douglas Adams Quotes about pain
#4621 Ralph Waldo Emerson

delivers us to dream, and there is no end to a train of moods like a string of beads, and, as we pass through them, they prove to be many-colored lenses which paint the world their own hue, and each shows only what lies in its focus. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about pain
#4664 Ralph Waldo Emerson

It costs a beautiful person no exertion to paint her image on our eyes; yet how splendid is that benefit! It costs no more for a wise soul to convey his quality to other men. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about pain
#4768 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Every really able man, in whatever direction he work,—a man of large affairs, an inventor, a statesman, an orator, a poet, a painter,—if you talk sincerely with him, considers his work, however much admired, as far short of what it should be. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about pain
#5105 Mark Twain

Man has been here 32,000 years. That it took a hundred million years to prepare the world for him is proof that that is what it was done for. I suppose it is, I dunno. If the Eiffel Tower were now representing the world's age, the skin of paint on the pinnacle-knob at its summit would represent man's share of that age; and anybody would perceive that the skin was what the tower was built for. I reckon they would, I dunno. .

Mark Twain Quotes about pain
#5237 Mark Twain

Of all the creatures that were made he [man] is the most detestable. Of the entire brood he is the only one — the solitary one — that possesses malice. That is the basest of all instincts, passions, vices — the most hateful...He is the only creature that inflicts pain for sport, knowing it to be pain...Also — in all the list he is the only creature that has a nasty mind. .

Mark Twain Quotes about pain
#6500 James A. Michener

Second, after a painful gap without any king, and a furious struggle by various foreign powers to elect men favorable to them, the Seym chose a pathetic Polish incompetent, who had the good sense to die rather promptly. .

James A. Michener Quotes about pain
#6825 Adlai Stevenson

Any great institution or idea must suffer its pains of birth and growth. .

Adlai Stevenson Quotes about pain
#7630 John Lehman

"Many will recall with pain what we went through in the Reagan administration in 1983, when the Marine barracks were bombed in Beirut—241 Marines and Navy corpsmen were killed. We immediately got an intercept from NSA [National Security Agency], a total smoking gun from the foreign ministry of Iran, ordering the murder of our Marines. Nothing was done to retaliate. Instead, we did exactly what the terrorists wanted us to do, which was to withdraw. Osama bin Laden has cited this as one of his dawning moments." .

John Lehman Quotes about pain
#7987 StanisЕ‚aw Lem

For moral reasons I am an atheist — for moral reasons. I am of the opinion that you would recognize a creator by his creation, and the world appears to me to be put together in such a painful way that I prefer to believe that it was not created by anyone than to think that somebody created this intentionally. .

StanisЕ‚aw Lem Quotes about pain
#8067 George Carlin

Samuel Johnson Quotes about pain
#8663 Samuel Johnson

Sherry is dull, naturally dull; but it must have taken him a great deal of pains to become what we now see him. Such an excess of stupidity, sir, is not in Nature. .

Samuel Johnson Quotes about pain

Niels Bohr Quotes about pain
#9424 John Lennon

I go to restaurants and the groups always play "." I even signed a guy's violin in Spain after he played us "Yesterday." He couldn't understand that I didn't write the song. But I guess he couldn't have gone from table to table playing "." .

John Lennon Quotes about pain
#10370 Henry Miller

Writing is Crude hieroglyphs chiseled in pain & sorrow to commemorate an event which is intransmissible. .

Henry Miller Quotes about pain
#10403 Pablo Picasso

Do you think it interests me that this painting represents two figures? These two figures existed, they exist no more. The sight of them gave me an initial emotion, little by little their real presence grew indistinct they became a fiction for me, then they disappeared, or rather, were turned into problems of all kinds. For me they are no longer two figures but shapes and colours, don’t misunderstand me, shapes and colours, though, that sum up the idea of the two figures and preserve the vibration of their existence. .

Pablo Picasso Quotes about pain
#10404 Pablo Picasso

When we did Cubist paintings, our intention was not to produce Cubist paintings but to express what was within us. No one laid down a course of action for us, and our friends the poets followed our endeavour attentively but they never dictated it to us. .

Pablo Picasso Quotes about pain
#10568 W. H. Auden

Normally, when one passes someone on the street who is in pain, one either tries to help him, or one simply looks the other way. With a photo there's no human decision; you're not there; you can't turn away; you simply gape. It's a form of voyeurism. .

W. H. Auden Quotes about pain
#11512 Friedrich Nietzsche

There exists no more repulsive and desolate creature in the world than the man who has evaded his genius and who now looks furtively to left and right, behind him and all about him. ... He is wholly exterior, without kernel, a tattered, painted bag of clothes. .

Friedrich Nietzsche Quotes about pain
#11588 Friedrich Nietzsche

Benefiting and hurting others are ways of exercising one's power upon others; that is all one desires in such cases. One hurts those whom one wants to feel one's power, for pain is a much more efficient means to that end than pleasure; pain always raises the question about its origin while pleasure is inclined to stop with itself without looking back. We benefit and show benevolence to those who are already dependent on us in some way (which means that they are used to thinking of us as causes); we want to increase their power because in that way we increase ours, or we want to show them how advantageous it is to be in our power; that way they will become more satisfied with their condition and more hostile to and willing to fight against the enemies of our power. .

Friedrich Nietzsche Quotes about pain
#11961 Miguel Cervantes

They can expect nothing but their labor for their pains. .

Miguel Cervantes Quotes about pain
#12053 Miguel Cervantes

He has done like Orbaneja, the painter of Ubeda, who, being asked what he painted, answered, "As it may hit;" and when he had scrawled out a misshapen cock, was forced to write underneath, in Gothic letters, "This is a cock." .

Miguel Cervantes Quotes about pain
#12149 Miguel Cervantes

The painter Orbaneja of Ubeda, if he chanced to draw a cock, he wrote under it, "This is a cock," lest the people should take it for a fox. .

Miguel Cervantes Quotes about pain
#12499 Dorothy Parker

Razors pain you, Rivers are damp, Acids stain you, And drugs cause cramp. Guns aren't lawful, Nooses give, Gas smells awful. You might as well live. First printed in New York World, (16 August 1925) .

Dorothy Parker Quotes about pain
#13180 G. K. Chesterton

It is all as of old, the empty clangour, The NOTHING scrawled on a five-foot page, The huckster who, mocking holy anger, Painfully paints his face with rage. … We that fight till the world is free, We have no comfort in victory; We have read each other as Cain his brother,We know each other, these slaves and we. .

G. K. Chesterton Quotes about pain
#13288 George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans)

I began ... to watch with peculiar alarm lest what I called my philosophic estimate of the human lot in general, should be a mere prose lyric expressing my own pain and consequent bad temper. .

George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans) Quotes about pain
#14086 Emily Bront

I have no pity! I have no pity! The more the worms writhe, the more I yearn to crush out their entrails! It is a moral teething; and I grind with greater energy in proportion to the increase of pain. .

Emily Bront Quotes about pain

Edmund Burke Quotes about pain

Ronald Reagan Quotes about pain
#15223 William Congreve

It is the business of a comic poet to paint the vices and follies of human kind. .

William Congreve Quotes about pain
#15711 John F. Kennedy

Our security and strength, in the last analysis, directly depend on the security and strength of others, and that is why our military and economic assistance plays such a key role in enabling those who live on the periphery of the Communist world to maintain their independence of choice. Our assistance to these nations can be painful, risky and costly, as is true in Southeast Asia today. But we dare not weary of the task. For our assistance makes possible the stationing of 3-5 million allied troops along the Communist frontier at one-tenth the cost of maintaining a comparable number of American soldiers. .

John F. Kennedy Quotes about pain
#15764 E. E. Cummings

Your poems are rather hard to understand, whereas your paintings are so easy. Easy? Of course—you paint flowers and girls and sunsets; things that everybody understands. I never met him. Who? Everybody. Did you ever hear of nonrepresentational painting? I am. Pardon me? I am a painter, and painting is nonrepresentational. Not all painting. No: housepainting is representational. And what does a housepainter represent? Ten dollars an hour.In other words, you don’t want to be serious— It takes two to be serious. .

E. E. Cummings Quotes about pain
#16044 Ludwig Wittgenstein

"Fare well!" " A whole world of pain is contained in these words." How can it be contained in them? — It is bound up in them. The words are like an acorn from which an oak tree can grow. .

Ludwig Wittgenstein Quotes about pain
#16596 Alexander Pope

Vital spark of heav'nly flame! Quit, oh quit, this mortal frame: Trembling, hoping, ling'ring, flying, Oh the pain, the bliss of dying! .

Alexander Pope Quotes about pain
