Quotes About Being Hurt

Quotes About Being Hurt Teach Us to Endure Pain


There is an old saying that goes, "It is easier to hurt than to heal." Inflicting pain on others in order to get revenge may initially seem fulfilling, but it only ends up stoking a bigger fire in our heart.

There is so much pain and suffering in the world that we have learned to be numb to pain. Everyday, television and newspapers flash pictures of people who have been hurt. Petty quarrels lead to fragmented society and mistrust. At the core of all conflict is hurt. If the pain is eradicated, peace can be restored.

To eradicate pain, we need to control anger. Flare-ups, temper tantrums, and unbridled rage destroys life. We need to be careful about venting our spleen. Hate and anger are the root causes of all pain and suffering in the world. Let us rid the world of its misery by eradicating hate and anger.

Nations of the world must unite to fight against hatred. We can resolve our problems through diplomacy and tact. Confrontation is never a solution in the long run. Get inspired by these quotes about being hurt and fight this malady.
