Tashonda Elsammak :
To be great you have to face failure To be great you have to endure life's struggles To be great you have to encounter and push through life's hardships To be great you have to conquer every challenge To be great you have to persevere To be great you smile even when your hurting To be great is to have faith even when it seems impossible Let greatness continue to be you
[Tashonda Elsammak]
Shqipe Prence :
Forgive and Forget ‘Forgive and forget', a tricky phrase! Forget? Beyond our power. Holding grudges in heart? Unhealthy, walls of separation. We can give our future a chance: get over it, forgive hurting, but trust them again …? The best kind of revenge: Move forward to another level of energy, love, forgiveness, letting go, look straight ahead, peace!
[Shqipe Prence]
Mother Teresa :
When Christ said: "I was hungry and you fed me," he didn't mean only the hunger for bread and for food; he also meant the hunger to be loved. Jesus himself experienced this loneliness. He came amongst his own and his own received him not, and it hurt him then and it has kept on hurting him. The same hunger, the same loneliness, the same having no one to be accepted by and to be loved and wanted by. Every human being in that case resembles Christ in his loneliness; and that is the hardest part, that's real hunger.
[Mother Teresa (b. 1910), Albanian-born Roman Catholic missionary in India. "Imitation of Christ," A Gift for God (1975).]

Yehoshua Shim'onai :
As I was looking back to the days when I was still an unforgiving hater, I realized an irony: As I was intending to hurt the ones that I was resentful of, I was unintentionally hurting the ones that I love with my bitterness.
[Some out-of-the-blue thoughts as I was attending our store in the market.]
PHUMLA KHANYILE :
Poetry is like lemons made lemonade...it turns pain to valuable lessons, disappointments to determinations. If you let it, poetry can truly heal your ills. Its release bandages all sorts of oozing wounds. In the world that is so hurting, we need words that give hope. Music is slowly failing to deliver but poetry will keep to its promise. Poetry is worth a chance! If it was worth in the days of old, to speak poetically in the book of Proverbs and Psalms, why not today? Poetry allows us to go back to true nakedness where we bear our souls unashamed, breaking defensive walls of perfectness to allow others to find their stand through our falls, to reconnect with their humanness, to know that their flaws are not peculiar. ‪#‎ILive‬&BreathePoetry!

Sandra Parris :
Who Is Awake Who is awake when you cannot sleep When you are hurting, when there is no one to talk to Who is awake when you are fighting for your life Who is awake when you are depressed and the world doesn't seems to care There is someone who is always awake All day and night He sees when you are hurting, depressed, fighting for your life and no one seems to care It's not your mother or father or sister or brother or any family members or friends That is awake when all is lost or you are hurting or feeling alone It's the night Watchman The One that stick's closer than a brother The One that says He will take care of you He is awake Waiting Listening To Comfort To meet every need Yes it's Jessus He Is Awake
[JESUS Never Sleep]
June Jordan :
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
[June Jordan (b. 1939), U.S. poet, civil rights activist. Keynote address to Child Welfare League of America; published in Moving Towards Home: Political Essays (1989). "Old Stories: New Lives," (1978).]

Alice Sterling Honig :
[Research has found that] ... parents whose children were "baby altruists" by two years firmly prohibited any child aggression against others. Adults not only restated their rule against hitting, for example, but they let the little one know that they would not tolerate the child hurting another.
[Alice Sterling Honig (20th century), child psychologist. "Helping Children Become More Caring and Cooperative," NYSAEYC Reporter (Winter 1994).]

Joseph Featherstone :
Our conversation begins to look like the last scene in Eugene O'Neill's great family drama, Long Day's Journey Into the [sic] Night. Sitting together in a dwindling pool of light, the family talks on. Fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters are trying to explain: not understanding, but comprehending; loving one another, but hating and hurting each other; tangling and untangling like badly cast fishing lines, a group of inviolate, wounded selves. O'Neill's characters, like the rest of us, are speaking about the family in order to explain their attitudes toward life itself.
[Joseph Featherstone (20th century), U.S. social critic. "Family Matters," Harvard Educational Review, vol. 49 (February 1979).]

Louise J Kaplan :
For all of us there will be those irreconcilable injuries and humiliations that persist and infiltrate into adult existence. They may become the seeds for those monotonous repetitions of hurting others and getting hurt ourselves,...Or the leftover traumas can be incentives for innovation and change,...the opportunity to rewrite the scripts, introduce a few new characters, get rid of one or two, perhaps even change the ending, and free the lover and jester inside us all.
[Louise J. Kaplan (20th century), U.S. psychologist. Adolescence, ch. 6 (1984).]
