Quotes on Pain from When We Hurt by Philip Yancey

  • "Pain does not occur in the abstract – no sensation is more personal or more importunate." – Dr. Paul Brand (p. 9)
  • "Offer your pains to God. Pray for the strength to endure. Above all, develop a habit of conversing often with God. Adore Him in your infirmities. At the very height of your suffeig, ask Him humbly and affectionately (as a child to a good parent) to help you accept His will." – Brother Lawrence (p. 12)
  • "Pain is not the enemy, but the loyal scout announcing the enemy…Pain truly is the gift nobody wants." – Dr. Paul Brand (p. 20)
  • "Pain is a priceless essential gift – of that I have no doubt. And yet only by learning to master pain can we keep it from mastering us." – Dr. Paul Brand (p. 23)
  • "Pain has no 'outside' existence. Two people can look at the same tree; no one has ever shared a stomachache. This is what makes the treatment of pain so difficult. None of us – doctor, parent, or friend – can truly enter into another person's pain. It is the loneliest, most private sensation." – Dr. Paul Brand (p. 34)
