DR. MEREDITH GREY, Grey's Anatomy, "Sometimes a Fantasy" (2006)
Pain, you just have to ride it out, hope it goes away on its own, hope the wound that caused it heals. There are no solutions, no easy answers, you just breath deep and wait for it to subside. Most of the time pain can be managed but sometimes the pain gets you where you least expect it. Hits way below the belt and doesn't let up. Pain, you just have to fight through, because the truth is you can't outrun it and life always makes more.
DR. MEREDITH GREY, Grey's Anatomy, "Bring the Pain" (2005)
Without the possibility of pain, there can be no joy, no real love.
ANGELA MONTENEGRO, Bones, "The Skull in the Sculpture" (2008)
Life's so hard already, why do we bring so much trouble on ourselves? What's up with the need to hit the self-destruct button? Maybe we like the pain. Maybe we're wired that way because without it... I don't know. Maybe we just wouldn't feel real. What's that saying? "Why do I keep hitting myself with a hammer? Because it feels so good when I stop!"
DR. MEREDITH GREY, Grey's Anatomy, "The Self-Destruct Button" (2005)
Pain and loss, they define us as much as happiness or love.
SARAH JANE SMITH, Doctor Who, "School Reunion" (2006)
Pain is a part of life... but you cannot let it blind you.
JOR-EL, Smallville, "Vessel" (2006)
Pain is part of anyone's journey... you can't escape it.
RAYA, Smallville, "Fallout" (2006)
The lessons we learn from pain are the ones that make us the strongest.
LIONEL LUTHOR, Smallville, "Hidden" (2005)
Pain is like a thief in the night: quiet, persistent, unfair, diminished by time and faith and love.
SAMANTHA WALKER, One Tree Hill, "Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly." (2008)
There are no shortcuts...in life or in love. This pain must be felt. The alternative is much worse. It's what makes us special, what makes us beautiful, what... what makes us worthy; the pain of how we love. But that pain is accompanied by something else, isn't it? Hope. With your pain, there is hope. And that is where you are. Somewhere between agony and optimism and prayer. So you're human. You're alive. And that is what we have.
DR. JUDE BAR-SHALOM, Brothers & Sisters, "Love Is Difficult" (2007)
