“Physical pain is my friend. I pursue it every night for four hours.”


Bruce Springsteen

“Tonight I’m stepping lightly and I’m feeling no pain.”


Bruce Springsteen

“You can’t shut off the risk and the pain without losing the love that remains.”


Bruce Springsteen

“No pain will last forever. It is not easy, but life was never meant to be either easy or fair. Repentance and the lasting hope that forgiveness brings will always be worth the effort.”


Boyd K. Packer

“Forget about winning and losing; forget about pride and pain. Let your opponent graze your skin and you smash into his flesh; let him smash into your flesh and you fracture his bones; let him fracture your bones and you take his life! Do not be concerned with escaping safely- lay your life before him!!”


Bruce Lee

“Pain is weakness leaving your body.”


Bruce Lee

“When you feel pain, you know that you are still alive.”


Bruce Lee

“Forget about winning and losing, forget about pride and pain”


Bruce Lee

“Tai chi is the one exercise that can universally help solve our growing health crisis. It has stood the test of thousands of years. We have a generation of baby boomers with increasing health problems; old people who are sick, in pain, fearful, and cranky; a middle class that is increasingly incapable of affording most of the drugs that are prescribed for their ailments; children that are flaccid, diabetic and asthmatic. People of all ages are addicted to drugs, alcohol, sugar, cigarettes, and caffeine. Stress follows almost everyone like a shadow.”


Bruce Frantzis

“If we really believe that animals have the same right to be free from painand suffering at our hands, then, of course we’re going to be, as amovement, blowing things up and smashing windows … I think it’s a great wayto bring about animal liberation … I think it would be great if all of thefast-food outlets, slaughterhouses, these laboratories, and the banks thatfund them exploded tomorrow. I think it’s perfectly appropriate for peopleto take bricks and toss them through the windows … Hallelujah to thepeople who are willing to do it.”


Bruce Friedrich

“When you hit the unimaginable, the only answer is imaginativeness. You have to heal with the person that you’re suffering with. You have to write a new chapter in your story. A relationship can be a sacred thing, but it’s going to be difficult. There are going to be challenges. You are going to have pain. But working it through and being resilient is as sacred and meaningful as having a “Hollywood” romance.”


Bruce Feiler

“It sounds strange to say it, but you can be in a war zone and have a lot of fun. Even though war is essentially pain on all sides, human beings have the capacity to enjoy themselves. The soldiers are mostly young people, full of enthusiasm and energy, and that’s an exciting thing for an old guy like me.”


Bruce Cockburn

“Life is a school, a place for us to learn and grow. We, like Adam and Eve, experience ‘growing pains’ through the sorrow and contamination of a lone and dreary world. These experiences may include sin, but they also include mistakes, disappointments, and the undeserved pain of adversity. The blessed news of the gospel is that the Atonement of Jesus Christ can purify all the uncleanness and sweeten all the bitterness we taste.”


Bruce C. Hafen

“Let all our employment be to know GOD: the more one knows Him, the more one desires to know Him. And as knowledge is commonly the measure of love, the deeper and more extensive our knowledge shall be, the greater will be our love: and if our love of GOD were great, we should love Him equally in pains and pleasures.”

Brother Lawrence

“Have courage then: make a virtue of necessity: ask of God, not deliverance from your pains, but strength to bear resolutely, for the love of Him, all that He should please, and as long as He shall please.”

Brother Lawrence

“If we are truly devoted to doing God’s will, pain and pleasure won’t make any difference to us.”

Brother Lawrence

“Love sweetens pain; and when one loves God, one suffers for His sake with joy and courage.”

Brother Lawrence

“My father’s death, my move, and my frightening and difficult delivery created a tremendous amount of stress, pain, and sadness for me. I was practically devastated beyond recovery.”

Brooke Shields

“I actually had kind of one of those crazy experiences where when I hit, it was black out excruciating pain, and then white out absence of pain, and the subconscience thought that I want to go back.”

Brooke Burns

“I don’t feel pain. I ain’t got time for that. I let other people feel pain for me.”
